Welcome to the Fort Greene Flea

Saturday 10am-5pm Goods + Food • 150 Vendors Rain or Shine

The Market is open every Saturday from April through November. The 40,000-square-foot schoolyard at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School is part vintage bazaar, part hipster hang, part old-fashioned town square, and part food bonanza. 

Once you enter the market place you are greeted by tons of vendors and colorful knick knacks. You can find anything from buttons to furniture at the outdoor market. However, the Fort Greene Flea market is a bit more refined than your average flea market and this is definitely reflected in the prices. This doesn’t mean you can’t bargain but don’t expect to go home with $1 Dollar items. If you’re in love with Etsy but are sad you can’t see the items without purchasing them, this would be the perfect place for you. You can even pay with your Credit Card at most places. 

My favorite thing to do at the flea is people watch while eating a People’s Pops – if you’ve never had one you need to try one ASAP. If you have friends visiting from out of town I’d recommend you bring them to the Flea during lunch and try some of the popular foods, like the Instagram-hyped Ramen Burger (instead of a bun your burger is sandwiched between two balls of ramen). You could easily spend two hours here and experience the “new Brooklyn” and discover what “vintage” items Hipsters choose to spend their money on. 

And hey – if you happen to have parents with an overstocked attic you could even become a vendor yourself.
