Brooklyn Flea, Brooklyn, NY
Founded in 2008, the Brooklyn Flea has rapidly become ubiquitous among a certain segment of New York City’s population. The market features everything from antiques to vintage clothing to records to sandwiches, all sold by a shifting lineup of vendors. And it has resulted in a few spin-off ventures, including an annual holiday market, a beer garden, and the more food-oriented Smorgasburg. And the Flea’s popularity blends the timeless aspects of searching for something unexpected and eccentric with more recent movements in design and dining.
