    Good way to spend a weekend afternoon during favorable weather. The flea market features over 250 vendors who display a broad array of antiques, vintage clothing, homemade items, jewelry, food, etc...a collector's paradise.

    Eclectic showing of a variety of different crafts, antiques and cast-offs. One person's trash is another's treasure. In the winter they move the Flea indoor and the building a converted bank is worth the visit alone.

    As a photographer, a food fan, and a girl who grew up rummaging through her grandparents' attic and adoring all of the bizarre finds, I have to say: This place is legit. I could probably roam BK Flea for hours without getting bored, but I'm afraid I'd purchase half the market if I did so. There's plenty to see, shoot (photogs) and eat (dudes, seriously. Eat.) It's got a great location by the water in Williamsburg, too.

    The Brooklyn Flea is an institution and a must-see in Brooklyn. This is the nicest flea market you will find anywhere this side of Paris. A mix of old and new -- antique furniture, vintage clothing, artwork, and artisanal food stuffs. The Fort Greene location has a bit more charm than the Willamsburg location and is a great reason to visit this wonderful neighborhood.

    Full of amazing finds with lots of character. This is one of the best flea's we've been to. Go on a warm weekend day and just stroll until you find that perfect vintage record to add to your ever-so-hip collection.

    If you love amazing food and found digging through grandma's attic to be an absolute delight: this place is amazing. Not only is it full of a wide variety of antique bits and bobs - you can also found a wide variety of Brooklyn selling their wares.

    Not so much a flea market as a great place to check out local artists. Think ETSY, not rummage sale. Handmade prints, vintage clothing, maps, rugs, and yummy food. Where else can you sample gourmet doughnuts and buy a typewriter?

    My best friend is a stylist and I once went to Brooklyn Flea with her when she had a booth. The market is expansive and full of great finds. I know a lot of the top thrift stores in Manhattan come here to purchase Hermes scarves, horse saddle bags from the 1920s, and other one of a kind items.

    The Flea features hundreds of top vendors of antique and repurposed furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques, as well as a tightly curated selection of jewelry, art, and crafts by local artisans and designers, plus delicious fresh food.
