Things are on the up and up at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene. I covered the debut of the flea way back in April when things were in their infancy. I am happy to report that many of my issues with the Brownstoner produced vintage fest have been corrected and the flea is nearly perfect at this point. I love to go to the Elephant’s Trunk flea in Milford, Connecticut, but getting up there with enough time to enjoy the market is nearly impossible due to the 5:45am start time. The Brooklyn Flea is much more accommodating with its 10am opening. That makes it easy to get a good brunch and hangover-helper under your belt before hand. Additionally, the food (if you skip brunch and head straight over) at the Brooklyn Flea is far superior to that of any flea I have ever been to. So you have no excuse not to head to Fort Greene next weekend.
Note that this stand is a “Mad Men” shop full of 60s vintage goods.
If you walk up Lafayette to the flea, make a detour to Stuart & Wright. The awesome men’s and women’s boutique sells all sorts of good brands and is worth checking out.
