True harbingers of spring? How ‘bout baseball’s opening day, and…Brooklyn Flea’s triumphant annual return to the glorious outdoors. The 3-year-old vunder-market just keeps getting better. This Sunday, the Flea makes its inaugural crawl north, to the Williamsburg waterfront between North 6th and 7th Streets. The waterfront Flea will be open every Sunday from April 3rd through November 20th, and will remain at its Fort Greene ancestral home at Bishop Loughlin High School every Saturday through November.
A boatload of new food vendors will be at Flea year three, including Mile End, Momofuku Milk Bar, Saltie, Kings County Jerky, Dough (of recent Food Curated fame), and Brooklyn Bangers (Saul Bolton’s new sausage sandwich venture.) Get the full breakdown on the heavy-hitting noobs here.
