Brooklyn Flea Is Moving Its Saturday Market From Fort Greene to Williamsburg

(Photo courtesy of Brooklyn Flea)

With spring fast approaching, we suspected today’s news about Bushwick Flea and the new Starr Space Flea Market wouldn’t be the only stirrings in the world of hipster flea markets. The original, Brooklyn Flea, has just announced that it’s folding up its Fort Greene market– yes, the one that started it all– and moving it to Williamsburg. The Saturday Flea, which has been in Fort Greene for nine years, will now take place alongside Saturday Smorgasburg in East River State Park.

The Flea’s founders explained the move in an email:

It’s a bittersweet moment for us, as our flagship location in Fort Greene is where this whole trip began. With a brand-new running track laid at the [Bishop Laughlin Memorial High] school over the winter and the chance to expand beckoning at East River State Park, however, it made sense to make this move now. The Flea loved every moment of its nine years at Bishop Loughlin, and we thank everyone at the school for their partnership over the last decade.

The Flea’s Sunday markets are staying put this season: Sunday Smorgasburg will remain at Prospect Park’s Breeze Hill, where it has been since 2015, and the Sunday Flea will remain at DUMBO’s Archway under the Manhattan Bridge. You’ll recall that the Sunday Flea took place in Williamsburg until last season, so the Saturday Flea’s move to the neighborhood is a homecoming of sorts.

It’s all one big game of musical chairs. Speaking of chairs, maybe you can score a nice little Eames number during the Flea’s opening weekend, April 1 and 2.

After turns in downtown Brooklyn, Williamsburg, and Crown Heights, Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg’s winter market reopened in Sunset Park this past weekend, in the sunny confines of Industry City. The new, 50,000 square-foot location is sprawling, with one wing dedicated to dozens of Smorgasburg vendors and the other housing 100+ Brooklyn Flea vendors hawking vintage and handmade goods — everything from Brooklyn Brewery beer soap to artisanal horseradish.

Earlier this year Pasar Malam came to Williamsburg (maybe you saw their flower-festooned tent at our Bazaar this past weekend) and now the East Village is getting a Malaysian spot – one of the few varieties of ethnic food it doesn’t already have.

Thirfters, here’s some sad news from the west side: after 20 years in Chelsea, The Antiques Garage sends word that next weekend will be its last. The parking garage at 112 West 25th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, is being redeveloped into a hotel tower, and the venerable flea, which has been on a month-to-month lease since 2011, has announced that its finals days will be June 28 and 29.

When Brooklyn Flea’s various markets returned for the outdoor season earlier this year, it wasn’t clear where and when its Williamsburg flea would reopen.

Now the Flea announces that, starting this weekend, it’ll be at 50 Kent every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The new location on a city-owned lot, between N. 11th and N. 12th Streets, is just a few blocks north of the old one, where Smorgasburg is still located every Saturday.

Brooklyn Flea Expands Outdoors, Though Not in East River State Park Sundays

The line at Mighty Quinn’s.

The team behind Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg have a whole lot to throw at you as they move into their outdoor season. First off, the Sunday flea market, as expected, won’t be returning to East River State Park in Williamsburg, though Smorgasburg is sticking around on Saturdays and adding 20 new vendors. Plus, there are new endeavors in Park Slope, Crown Heights, and Washington, DC. There’s a lot to digest here, so we’re just going to turn it over to the press release.
