Eric Richmond has long envisioned the Brooklyn Lyceum as a Medieval town square. While the former bath house on Fourth Avenue in Park Slope is often used as a venue for theater and dance, the owner’s vision comes true next month.

On May 1 and 2, the venue hosts its spring food and craft market, with clothing, clocks, art, gifts, jams, chocolates, cheeses, craft beer and loads more filling two floors of the space.

With markets every weekend in Brooklyn, the Lyceum’s offers something different from the pack.

“All the merchandise is handmade,” said Deborah Klein, who promoted the event. “Our intent is to highlight the full expansive array of fantastic, artisanal goods available all throughout the Northeast and get them into the homes, shops, mouths and consciousness of all interested individuals who will cross our stoop.”

The market will be like shopping at Etsy in person, with more than 100 crafty vendors filling two floors of the Lyceum. Keep an eye out for comic book-themed clocks from Can’t Afford Em Crafts, FlipMaja’s individualized yoga mat bags and Windows of Agate’s plush toys (pictured).

On the food end, munch on Taza’s chocolatey goodness and bacon marmalade (that’s a real thing!).

The spring event will also feature food, silkscreening and textile workshops — so you can return home with your own crafty creations (bacon jelly, anyone?).

The Spring Food and Craft Market at the Brooklyn Lyceum Brooklyn Lyceum [227 Fourth Ave. at President Street in Park Slope, (718) 857-4816], May 1 and 2, 11 am-7 pm. Free admission. For info, visit
