Now, welcoming over 350,000 visitors, this authentic shopping-stopping point offers numerous vendors, foods, drinks, and activities for all ages. Runs April-October.
With a thrift store style, here you can find everything from racks of old Louise Vuitton purses to jazzy shirts from vacation spots around the world. If you are shopping for funky accessories, a trendy chair for your office, or a 70’s wardrobe, this flea market ran by the Brooklyn Flea managers is the right spot for you. With over 100 vendors, you can find some gold-gems in this side of town. Runs April-October.
