No doubt about it, the Brooklyn Flea has become a certified New York foodie and shopping destination, think Eataly meets lower Soho meets NYC Food Trucks. And while its name may evoke images of critter-infested wares, the only thing that's biting as much as, well, fleas, are serious shoppers who flock to the market in rain, snow, and sunshine. Since its launch in 2008, BK Flea has quickly earned a reputation as a tightly curated market for antiques, vintage goods, jewelry, knick-knacks, and delicious eats. What's more, it's also the launch-pad for creative entrepreneurs peddling the Next Big Thing, and this weekend's outdoor opening in their new Williamsburg location, promises both eclectic products for your home and closet, as well as your fill of gourmet treats from a host of vendors setting up shop for the first time. We don't want you to get lost in the maze of merch, so we've rounded up our top 10 list of new booths you must visit. The weatherman is saying it's going to be somewhat sunny this weekend—perfect temps for shopping—so, print this list, grab your fave sunnies, and a huge shopper. We guarantee you'll be taking home lots of goodies.
The Brooklyn Flea is open rain or shine on Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at their Fort Greene location, 176 Lafayette Avenue (between Clermont and Vanderbilt Avenue), and on Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at their Williamsburg location, 27 North 6th Street (between Kent Avenue and East River).
