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.
Eric Demby, one of the Flea’s founders, tells us there are some newcomers among the 150 vendors, including Cranberry Cottage (their trinkets are pictured at left), Seth Brody (a Brooklyn-based designer of side tables and other home accessories),
Attic Addict (vintage and repurposed furniture), Evan James Interiors (farmhouse-y vintage furniture and accessories) White Star Vintage (furniture and clothing), and Shibui (Japanese antiques and, um, softcore erotica posters).
As for the food, here’s the full lineup.

The flea isn’t the only excitement coming to 50 Kent, fka Williamsburg Park. There will also be a summer concert series produced by Northside, free outdoor movies screened by Nitehawk, and events produced by Gotham Girls Roller Derby, Renegade Craft Fair and Bike New York.
