Brooklyn Flea moved farther down the waterfront to Pearl Plaza, providing yet another reason to explore Dumbo. But a new location wasn’t the only major difference: The market shrunk to about 80 vendors that will display their goods underneath the Manhattan Bridge. You’ll still find a familiar assortment of loot. In the past, we saw Champion and Superfussy vintage clothing, artwork from Boomerang, A. Franck’s rugs and antiques, and popular eats like Big Mozz pizza and its famous mozzarella balls. Also worth noting, Brooklyn Flea returns to Williamsburg this spring at a completely new location: The second-floor patio at The Williamsburg Hotel.
