Brooklyn Flea Expanding to Williamsburg

Big news in the Flea department…As Daily Intel reported (and Curbed echoed) this morning, the Brooklyn Flea will be setting up camp in Williamsburg on Sundays when its outdoor season begins in April. While The Flea will continue to be held as usual in its flagship Fort Greene location on Saturdays, on Sundays it will move to a similarly-sized, 40,000-square-foot plot on the East River between North 6th and North 7th Streets. The plot is the future home of the third tower in the Edge complex; rather than leave it empty for the next few years, the developer, Douglaston Development, wanted to landscape and activate the site. The timing was perfect for The Flea, which needed a larger location for the outdoor season. We also will be programming the Edge site on Saturdays in ways that are related to The Flea’s existing areas of interest but that won’t compete directly against the Saturday operation in Fort Greene.
