Walking Around the Brooklyn Flea

The Brooklyn Flea is just a real fabulous event. I thought we would take a little stroll to check out the antiques, the food, and vintage items that can be found here. Here is some information on the flea from their website: 

Founded in April 2008, Brooklyn Flea has grown into one of New York City's top attractions, operating flea markets every weekend of the year that feature 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. The New York Times called the Flea "One of the great urban experiences in New York"; Travel + LeisureCountry LivingBudget Travel, and Delta Sky ranked the Flea one of the best markets or antiques shows in the U.S.; and Time Out NY named the Flea one of New York's Essential Pick-Up Spots.
Right now the Flea is open every Saturday and Sunday at Skylight One Hanson, an event space in the landmark former Williamsburgh Savings Bank. The market features mix of 100+ vendors on three floors, including the lower-level vault and upstairs mezzanine: click here for a map and directions.
From April through Thanksgiving, the markets take place outdoors: on Saturdays in Fort Greene and on Sundays in Williamsburg. From Thanksgiving through March, the market moves indoors to Skylight One Hanson. And every summer you can find Flea food vendors at the Central Park SummerStage outdoor concert series, where the Flea operates the food and beverage concession.

totally vintage typewriter 
Salvatore Bklyn has homemade ricotta, for fabulous cannoli filling as well as fresh prosciutto  
so loving the light fixtures here 
These were so different and tasty. It is so neat to find foods you may never get to try in your hometown.  
The flea has items for the guys, too, like these cool guitars. Women who play would be excited to see these as well. 
Lobster Rolls. I do not need to say any more. 
Porchetta is a favorite Italian pork treat and this place in New York City is one of the best. My mom makes a pretty good one at home, although it is not made as often as I would like.  
Does that not look amazing?? With a wonderful homemade Italian roll, you are set. A smile on your face will for sure appear. 
Saltie had some great food items as well ....so many to choose from here you cannot go wrong. 
These sandwiches looked good and somewhat light too. 
The views are amazing and it is a relaxing day from the fast pace of Manhattan. 
Be sure to add the Brooklyn Flea to your travel list when visiting New York City !!
