The Brooklyn Flea Market

The Brooklyn Flea Market

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.

Brooklyn Flea Indoors

  • Critics choice
  • Free

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.

  1. Brooklyn Flea Indoors 1000 Dean St, between Classon and Franklin , 11238
  2. Sat Nov 29 - Sun Dec 28

Clinton Hill Flea

  • Critics choice
  • Free

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.

  1. Clinton Hill Flea 892 Fulton St , between Washington and Waverly Aves, 11238
  2. Sat Nov 29 - Sun Dec 28

SHWICK Market

  • Critics choice
  • Free

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.

  1. SHWICK Market 6 Charles Pl , at Willoughby Ave, 11221
  2. Sat Nov 29 - Sun Dec 28

What about Chelsea Flea Market on West 25th Street? It's a part of Annex Markets and they've been around for 40 years. The Huffington Post < http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bob-richter/nyc-gets-a-new-flea-marke_b_5974834.html > just published a great story about the market and its history and presence in NY. Not to mention it has a great sister market, Hell's Kitchen Flea Market. If you love vintage, antiques & collectibles then these markets are essential!

Another great place is http://themarketnyc.com on Bleecker.  It's the best of both worlds, vintage and local artist crafts. I never leave empty handed!  I'm on their mailing list and they just announced a 2nd location in Williamsburg.  Check it out it's got a cool, friendly vibe and fun music too.

The Green Flea caught my attention! I wonder why they call it a 'Green' flea. Do the vendors utilize a green energy efficient way of running their business?

We loved the Williamsburg Flea that we visited last weekend, and it's worth the trip to Brooklyn. Thanks for this list of fleas in Manhattan too. These are fun day-cations!
