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.
