The beloved Brooklyn Flea is widening its borough footprint with an expansion to Grand Army Plaza, the organization announced on Monday.
Grand Army Market, as this location has been dubbed, , will debut on Sunday, May 1, and remain open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Sunday through October.
Attendees can expect to find 30 local designers and artists in attendance, with the usual mix of clothing, vintage jewelry, food and more available for purchase. According to Grand Army Market’s official page, merchants will have an emphasis on “makers and unique design offerings.” While there will be many familiar faces, organizers promise there will also be many new vendors.
The market will run in partnership with nonprofit group the Prospect Park Alliance.
Grand Army Market is the newest outpost in a slew of expansions for the Flea and its foodie counterpart Smorgasburg, the latter of which has recently added upstate and Los Angeles to its roster of locations.
As for its other local spots, the Flea’s current calendar has the summer and fall market booked in Fort Greene on Saturdays and Dumbo on Sundays, while Smorgasburg is located in Williamsburg on Saturdays and Prospect Park on Sundays.
