Calling all vintage-store lovers and foodies: Fall flea season is officially in full swing (finally!). This season, you can look forward to a couple of new markets popping up in multiple 'hoods as well as a few upgraded fleas. Expect to find hip wares from vendors such as Funk and Grace at SHWICK Market, all-natural candles from Ame Naturals at Court Square Flea and fresh baked bread from Beigel’s Bakery at Clinton Hill Flea. Flea-goers, satisfy the itch and shop craft fashion jewelry, antiques and indulge on gourmet eats this weekend—these are the new (and updated) flea markets you’ll want to check out before the holidays.
The Brooklyn Flea is back outside on Saturdays in Fort Greene and Sundays in Williamsburg. Pick up a couple of hand-hammered stack rings by Jessica DeCarlo, at a special Flea-only price ($20 each, two for $35), or take a walk in Nina Z's eco-conscious clogs and sandals ($95–180). Visit Sharon London for easy-fitting tube dresses ($78) and vintage locket earrings ($12), or Hartford Denim Co. for quality-denim goods, like hoodies ($325) and aprons ($110). While perusing crafts and collectibles by local artisans, munch on some local bites, such as People's Pops shaved ice ($3) and ice pops ($4) made from local, fresh fruit.Read more
When the weather starts to get really cold, this alfresco flea is heading indoors for warmth. Don’t fret—apart from a new location in Crown Heights and an enclosed shopping space, not too much has changed. The market will still host more than 100 regular vendors, including a handful of the most popular eateries from Smorgasburg. Remember, this is one of the most popular fleas in the city, so get there before noon to fulfill your vintage dreams.Read more
This flea is all about the three bs: bread, brews and Brooklyn. Recently opened, this market features products from local artists and designers including beer from Heartland Brewery and weekly evening movie screenings provided by local filmmakers. Also, if you’ve ever smelled the mouthwatering aroma of fresh cinnamon rolls from Clinton Hill’s own Beigel’s Bakery, you’re in luck: Beigel’s is a recurring vendor, which is a big deal since this bread isn’t available for wholesale anywhere else.Read more
Check out handmade goods from clothing to gourmet food at this outdoor market. Standouts at this new Long Island City event include all-natural candles from Ame Naturals and hand-dyed shirts and bags from Spill Supply. FYI: This is a one-time-only market, so indulge while you can.Read more
Celebrate Oktoberfest, market-style, at this flea—now serving wine and beer—during this month’s events. Shop local vendors, but first locate the flea’s new beer garden, where it serves beer from local Queens breweries. Upcoming events include Brews and Tunes, where you can finger-flick through vinyl bins, as well as Halloween-themed bazaar Beers and Boo!, which features a pet and kids' costume contest.Read more
This new market—part indoor, part alfresco—will host more than 100 vendors at its Bushwick location—and judging by the list, it’s worth a trek if you’re heading from across the bridge. Shop products from local artists like photography from the BQE and hip wares by Funk and Grace, as well as artisanal foods like MixedMade’s spicy honey. This part of Brooklyn is known as New York’s most maker-y ’hood, so you know the spread is gonna be impressive.Read more
After a successful launch last fall, this market built a reputation as one of the top places for designer goods in Harlem and changed locations. Shop stunning women’s apparel from BERIQISU and handsome bags from Sidney & Sons. Caffeine addicts should check out Centropics for the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee beans; this rare roast sells out early in the day.Read more
