New Yorkers love finding a good deal and for all the hard-charging, techno-inspired lives they lead New Yorkers love discovering vintage items. This is why farmers markets, thrift shops, Salvation Army, and flea markets continue to be so popular. New Yorkers also love getting out into their community and meeting people who share their interests or who create these items. This is one of the primary reasons that the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill Brooklyn Flea has remained so popular. Every Saturday through the end of November, rain or shine, from 10AM – 5PM, the Brooklyn Flea takes to the streets.
According to the Brooklyn Flea website (1) there are “more than 150 vendors” pawning their wares, the outdoor Brooklyn Flea is actually one of two events of the same name. The other Brooklyn Flea being on Sundays, at Skylight One Hanson, indoors at the “landmark Williamsburg Savings Bank.” After the final outdoor market, both move indoors for the winter to the Skylight One Hanson.
At the Brooklyn Flea curious consumers can find “antique and repurposed furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques, as well as new jewelry, art and crafts by local artisans, plus delicious fresh food.” Every week the Brooklyn Flea website posts that weekend’s vendor layout “Friday at noon.”
