Sure, we’re about to be blanketed in two feet of snow by Stella, the ominous Nor’easter that’s approaching. But be that as it may, Spring is just around the corner. Starting April 1, Brooklyn Flea will be happening on Saturdays in Williamsburg. We sadly said goodbye to the Sunday Flea in 2015, so we’re happy to see them return. Sorry Fort Greene:
The original, Brooklyn Flea, has just announced that it’s folding up its Fort Greene market– yes, the one that started it all– and moving it to Williamsburg. The Saturday Flea, which has been in Fort Greene for nine years, will now take place alongside Saturday Smorgasburg in East River State Park.
The Flea’s founders explained the move in an email:
It’s a bittersweet moment for us, as our flagship location in Fort Greene is where this whole trip began. With a brand-new running track laid at the [Bishop Laughlin Memorial High] school over the winter and the chance to expand beckoning at East River State Park, however, it made sense to make this move now. The Flea loved every moment of its nine years at Bishop Loughlin, and we thank everyone at the school for their partnership over the last decade.
