Don’t worry—you’ll probably be spared from endless sock vendors at this Fort Greene bazaar. The space outside of Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School on Lafayette Avenue between Clermont and Vanderbilt Avenues offers a quirky roster of items, including a slew of antiques, vintage clothes, records, art and jewelry. Hungry for something more? Blue Marble organic ice cream, Whimsy & Spice cookies and Hot Bread Kitchen should sate your grumbling belly.

I don't love flea markets, but I spent a whole lot of time perusing different stands and had a fun time.  Everyone is incredibly friendly, and there's a great mix of vintage and new sellers to go through.  If you're looking for a quirky, kind of random holiday gift for friends or family - you'll definitely find something here.

For around $25 you can probably try two different vendors AND grab dessert! It's a great spot for food adventurers because you'll get access to so many different types of grub. Bring cash though (and expect to have a hard time finding a cash machine in the area). I've had to do cash back at the pharmacy.

Absolutely wonderful! A must do/see for anyone interested in the cool, the unique and the authentic side of NYC. Amazing finds and treasures, along with a great friendly vibe and great food and drink, street style or sidewalk cafe style! Highly recommend!
