food at the brooklyn flea

Posted by

The Brooklyn Flea is a much-hyped flea market that opened up two years ago in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The organizers of this free outdoor market wanted to create a place where artists, builders, collectors, and food artisans could sell their wares. Since its inception, the Flea has become a bona fide destination for serious food lovers and a jumping-off point for new food businesses. In addition to treats made on site, including brick-oven pizza, lobster rolls, porchetta sandwiches, cannolis, Salvadorian pupusas, and freshly-brewed coffee, you can find prepared items like Early Bird granola, Liddabit candies, Kumquat mini cupcakes, and McClure's pickles. There's a complete list of vendors here. The Flea opened for the season on a gorgeous Saturday this past weekend—here are a few pics I snapped while wandering around (and stuffing my face). If you're ever in NYC on a Saturday, make the short trip over the Manhattan bridge to check out the Flea.

    The Brooklyn Flea food rocks! Did you know it was also available in Brooklyn on Sunday at the fabulous swanky bank, One Hanson Place? The flea is Sat in Ft. Greene, Sun at Hanson Place. The building alone is worth checking out and sometimes the food vendors set up in the old bank vault. A different and fun experience.

    I went there for my birthday lunch this year! Lobster roll, pupusas, fish tacos, cupcakes, chocolates, and Mexican Coke. It was absolutely wonderful!
