Over the last seven years, the Brooklyn Flea – a collection of highly-curated urban markets - has become one of the city’s foremost attractions. Regardless of location – weekend days switch between two Brooklyn neighbourhoods - you can expect vintage clothing, antiques, ephemera, locally-made handcrafted goods and an abundance of excellent food. Operated year-round and outdoors from April until November, the markets are a mainline into the borough’s thriving maker industry. There’s also the phenomenally popular Smorgasburg, which also takes place Saturday and Sundays, a showcase for the Borough’s artisanal and ethnic chefs, with more than 100 vendors including cult favourite Ramen Burger and Red Hook Lobster Pound.
