The Brooklyn Flea to expand to Manhattan, Philadelphia

New outposts of the Kings County attraction are set to open outside of Brooklyn this summer.

Pretty soon, the name "Brooklyn Flea" will be something of a misnomer: This summer, the food-and-shopping destination will expand its reach beyond Brooklyn's borders to Manhattan and Philadelphia. DNA Info reported this afternoon that a food-focused outpost of the Brooklyn Flea will arrive at South Street Seaport on Memorial Day weekend, with anywhere between five to eight vendors operating at a large food court both during the week and on weekends. (There'll also be a bar built atop shipping containers on Fulton Street.)

This comes only a couple of days after the Flea announced that it would be opening a Philadelphia offshoot, which opens June 2 (and yes, it'll still be called Brooklyn Flea). The two new markets join the existing Flea ventures: two Smorgasburg outposts; the original Flea in Fort Greene; the Williamsburg market in East River Park; and the holiday market in the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower. Phew.
