[INSIDER] NEW YORK #57 – Brooklyn Flea

Brooklyn Flea:

Started in 2008, Brooklyn Flea offers some of New York’s most interesting and diverse shopping experiences, hands down. It is considered one of the best markets in the world; a place where you can find new and vintage clothing, furniture, jewelry, art, music, and some of the most storied vegetarian tacos in the 5 boroughs (Maria’s Tacos Authenticos). Over the years it has expanded to 5 locations which operate of different days, during it’s usual Spring to Thanksgiving outdoor season:

  • Fort Greene Flea – Saturdays from 10am to 5pm – 176 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn
  • Smorgasburg (Williamsburg) – Saturdays from 11am to 6pm – East River Waterfront, btw. North 6 and 7 St.  [this is the all-food market]
  • Williamsburg Flea – Sundays from 10am to 5pm – East River Waterfront, btw. North 6 and 7 St.
  • Smorgasburg (DUMBO) – Sundays from 11am to 6pm – Tobacco Warehouse (30 Water St.)
  • Central Park SummerStage – Any and all SummerStage events – Rumsey Playfield, 72nd Street and 5th Ave., Central Park

And, not to leave shoppers out on the lurch during the colder months, they also operate winter pop ups in DUMBO, a holiday market in Manhattan, a market in the Brooklyn Masonic Temple as well as Skylight One Hanson in Williamsburg. It’s a great place to walk about, maybe pick some unique crafts or even just a great bite to eat, and you’ll only find it in New York.
