The crowd-pleasing pop-up market—a Williamsburg holiday-shopping favorite since 2011—found a permanent home in this 24,000-square-foot Greenpoint warehouse. Modeled after eclectic Asian street markets, the flea runs year-round on Friday and Saturday nights—Sigmund's Pretzels uses the space during weekdays—and features a locally focused lineup of artists, craftspeople and food vendors. On the menu are BrisketTown's topflight barbecue, Ample Hills Creamery ice cream, lobster rolls from the Lobster Joint and Arancini Bros. rice balls. Kelso and 21st Amendment are on tap in the beer garden. The sprawling emporium is also equipped with a minigolf course, ping-pong tables and large-scale light installations by NBNY, and live bands play weekly.

What's on at Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Local band Caveman offers dreamy jangle pop at the Bazaar, full of sweeping guitar melodies and soft yet upbeat vocals. Sharing the bill is hazy, retro-flavored indie-pop outfit Total Slacker, performing behind its new Slip Away LP. Brooklyn indie-rock...
Brighton, U.K., quartet Fear of Men peddles its exquisitely dreamy indie pop—with just a hint of gothy gloom around the edges—at the Bazaar in advance of its debut album, Loom.
Indie rock, Rock & roll
Montreal outfit No Joy brings its rich, effects-slathered shoegaze to Greenpoint for a free show with dreamy Virginia punks Eternal Summers and surfy, organ-slathered retro-pop combo Beach Day.
