The 2nd Annual Younity Markit

Refreshing! Energizing! Loved- filled! Just some words to describe the feel at the 2nd Annual Younity Markit celebrated this past weekend in the Lower East Side. This annual celebration is a definitely a family affair where all elements of the hip-hop culture live and community is experienced. While some children ran freely and the pirag├╝ero sold his colorful drinks, DJ Laylo was on the 1s and 2s spinning music for the soul. At the breaker’s corner Rokafella and a crew of b-boys were getting down! Walking and visiting the different tables was a celebration in itself as one experienced diversity at its best. From the children’s art station, eco-friendly and unique jewelry, to on- the- spot painters, original and unique t-shirts, and so much more. But no celebration is complete without cake. Whoever did not get to taste the Bake-One-Frost-Two brownie cup- cakes shared by Sofia, covered with her special frosting, a tasteful strawberry and a fun little umbrella needs to head to the Younity Markit next spring. And if you tasted these brownie cup cakes, I’m sure ya’ll be back for more next year…

The Younity Markit is definitely a space that brings together all the components for a beautiful spring-day gathering. Birthing nothing but joy, creativity, and inspiration… I’m excited for the years to come celebrating Younity…
