Looking for trendy events in NYC? The 5th Annual ‘Open Market’ offers the Meatpacking District’s best in food & fashion, all under one roof! For one night only, it’s the unofficial kickoff-party to the spring season and a fundraiser for the neighborhood at Highline Stages on March 8, from 6:30pm – 10:30pm to celebrate the local business community.
Produced by the Meatpacking Business Improvement District (BID), it’s going to be a must-attend evening that doubles as a food festival and sample sale shopping event. Local business from 25+ area restaurants and bars will serve endless bites and bespoke cocktails, high-end retailers will provide exclusive discounts on top merchandise and you can dance the night away with live DJ music by Coco and Breezy. For the ultimate night out, VIP tickets offer early access to shop the sample sales, an exclusive hospitality experience by Soho House, a buy-it-now option for the silent auction, a product-filled gift bag, and guaranteed access to the VIP after party at TAO Downtown.
Come rub shoulders with four district icons who serve as co-chairs for the event: Diane von Furstenberg, Founder and Co-Chairman of DVF; Andrew Rosen, Founder and CEO of Theory; Gary Kline, Co-Owner and CEO of Highline Stages; and Mazdack Rassi, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Milk.

Open Market raises funds that go towards the sanitation and beautification of the district – the betterment of a beloved neighborhood. 100% of the proceeds go to the Meatpacking District Improvement Association (MPIA), the non- profit business alliance of the area and will be specifically earmarked for the capital upgrade of the district’s streetscape, called the 14th Street Master Plan.
