Indie-market fiends get a new opportunity to browse artisanal wares and stock up on goods from local vendors: Brooklyn Flea is debuting a new outpost in Park Slope. Starting October 12, the South Brooklyn 'hood will join Fort Greene and Williamsburg as locations for the rightfully popular outdoor bazaar.
The new spot—in front of P.S. 321 at Seventh Ave and 1st St—will replace a long-running antique market in the school's playground, and Flea founders Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby want to keep that laid-back vibe. The new space will top out at 8,000 square feet (which is tiny compared to Fort Greene's 40,000-square-foot area), and feature about 40 vendors with a focus on vintage and antique goods. But don't come hungry: There will just one food stand, if any.
Park Slope's Brooklyn Flea will be open Saturdays and Sundays 10am–5pm before shutting down for the winter in December.
