Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg Are Coming to West Soho

Hot on the heels of a new Chelsea restaurant, Smorgasburg and its sister Brooklyn Flea are continuing their quest for citywide domination with two new markets in West Soho. The first, opening Saturday, will be a “permanent” location of Brooklyn Flea, inside of an 89-year-old Art Deco building at 100 Avenue of the Americas. According to an announcement sent out today, Brooklyn Flea Soho “will occupy the 13,000 square-foot ground-floor indoor space with 60 vendors for at least the next two years, year-round, on weekends only to start.” This should give veteran vendors and newbs alike more to do in the wake of Williamsburg Flea’s closure.

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

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.

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.

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.
