Last month we told you that the Brooklyn Flea winter market was leaving Fort Greene for Williamsburg. Now we've got more details on the holiday bazaar—including the fact that Smorgasburg is going year-round, too. The whole shebang is relocating to a giant indoor space on the second floor of 80 North Fifth Street at Wythe Avenue. And it's happening just in time for Christmas shopping; you can begin perusing goods, safe from the winter elements, beginning this Saturday, November 30. The Williamsburg Winter Flea will be open Saturday and Sunday, 10am–7pm, through the end of March.
The 50,000 square-foot space, pictured, will host 200 vendors, 75 of which will be food booths—which means you can now chow down on Ramen Burgers and more Smorg-only goodies throughout the year. In addition, a Pat La Frieda "meat pop-up" will set up for the next four weekends, hawking holiday roasts, steaks, and his famed burger blend.
We'll leave you with a cool time-lapse video of the Fort Greene Brooklyn Flea's final Saturday of the year, embedded below.
