Feeling itchy? Well, flea season in NYC is upon us, but you still may want to get that checked out. As for outdoor markets, one of the most popular bazaars—Brooklyn Flea—reopens at two open-air locations for spring and summer next weekend.

After March 31, Brooklyn Flea’s indoor stay at the Atlantic Center will end. Sellers will resume their posts beneath the Manhattan Bridge (80 Pearl Street) in Dumbo on Sundays. But as for its Saturday location? Brooklyn Flea is heading back to Williamsburg! But this time, at an entirely new spot.
While Smorgasburg will continue to operate out of East River State Park every Saturday, you’ll have to walk a few blocks to the Williamsburg Hotel (96 Wythe Ave) to explore what Brooklyn Flea’s vendors have to offer. Yesterday on Instagram, the flea announced that merchants hawking vintage, jewels, art, books and more will be stationed on the second-level patio from 11am to 6pm every Saturday.
If you’ve been following Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg’s numerous relocation changes over the past few years, this should come as no shock. (We still miss Brooklyn Flea’s Fort Greene outpost most of all.) Regardless, we’re thrilled that we can start shedding our winter layers and enjoy some of the best things to do outdoors.
Both Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg reopen for the alfresco season on April 6. For more news on what you can eat this year at Smorgasburg, read our post here.
