With a few exceptions, Downtown Brooklyn is one area that definitely hasn’t felt the touch of the borough’s newfound enthusiasm for good food. That’s about to change…Official word broke last week about Dekalb Market, a new outdoor venue on a long-vacant space in the heart of downtown that will feature a market comprised of local artisanal growers, makers and chefs housed in a futuristic hive of refurbished shipping containers. With a farm. And live music and stuff.
Hmmm…might this young upstart threaten to topple King Flea? Only time will tell, but the oddsmakers would probably say that there’s plenty of room for more market fun in Brooklyn. Keep ‘em coming!
Dekalb Market is set to open in early summer at 322 Flatbush Ave, just across from the L.I.U. campus in downtown Brooklyn.
