Brooklyn Flea is New York’s gift to every fleamarket lover and vintage junkie. Every weekend you get to roam the 150 stalls for unique furniture, vintage clothes, jewellery, art and curiosa, as well as handmade products of local designers and modern craftsmen. Of course there’s plenty of food as well. From Lobster Rolls, Ramen Burgers, Salvadorian, Venezuelan and Filipino street food to Salted Chocolate Caramel Doughnuts and Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Sandwiches. From April to half October the Brooklyn Flea Market is outdoors at two locations, come rain or shine. Saturdays there’s the Fort Green Flea on 176 Lafayette Avenue. Sundays there’s the Williamsburg Flea on 50 Kent Avenue.
In winter the market moves indoors, to one location that changes every year. Die-hard foodies can go crazy at the Smorgasburg food market. The New York Times described Smorgasburg as “the Woodstock of Eating”. There’re dishes from all over the globe, packaged food and kitchenware. In summer on Saturdays in Williamsburg (East River State Park, 90 Kent Avenue) and Queens (43-29 Crescent Street) and Sunday’s in Prospect Park. During winter it moves indoors.
