    From soap, earrings and watches to oysters, ice cream and bicycles, the Flea is an ode to the city’s dedicated craftsmen. In a word: it makes you happy.

    Eat your way through the day. Start with Scratchbread scones and end with Liddabit Sweets pie candy bars. Read more

    Brooklyn Flea is so precious I fear sharing this secret with foursquare. Then, I realized everyone else knew about it before me. Every booth has something different to offer. Love.

    This weekend event from the Brownstoner folks is the mother of all hipster flea markets. Go for the antique vendors and the delicious snacks, not to mention the people-watching. [Racked 38 Member]

    It's hard to over-sell this weekly flea. Amazing food, good (albeit often overpriced) vintage wares and a good place to people watch.

    most food here is tasty. I'm always torn between anything Mexican or the (portable!) brick oven pizzas. there's also a stand towards entrance that sells prosciutto bruschetta--yum!

    Don't eat before coming here so that you can enjoy some of the best food that Brooklyn has to offer.

    Make a beeline for the antiques. Scored a steel juicer,wire peacocks, shooting gallery targets, edison lightbulbs. Find the babyfaced jewelry peddler -- he sells fat gold chains.

    A great place to spend a Saturday: Shop for vintage clothes and furniture, feast on Red Hook tacos and hopefully bump into someone you know.

    Stalls at this outdoor market are stacked with vintage accents (shabby-chic typewriter, anyone?), antique furniture, and artists’ crafts like tea towels, painted mugs, and prints. Read more · January 3, 2013

    I go here to stalk hipster chicks. It's much harder when they're not drunk and giving Hj's in a dive bar bathroom.

    Come for the mid-century modern furniture, stay for the awesome food carts. The red-hook ball field mexican food vendors are my favorite.

    Ask to see the lobster roll before you pay $16 for one. Delicious, but TINY...

    Work up an appetite by browsing the cool vintage stuff, then grab a lobster roll and a watermelon fruit drink to eat on the steps.

    Go directly to the red hook papusa stand. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

    Eat everything. Seriously. And especially the Mexican food near the gate, the porchetta sandwich, anything from Scratchbread, you won't leave hungry.

    There's handmade, vintage, and refurbished everything. Take your time and don't be afraid to barter. And before you leave, stop by the soda stand for the most delicious apple-ginger pop.

    Don't arrive right when it opens - the vendors won't be completely set up. Don't arrive too late - the mass of people are hard to negotiate. It's a delicate balance.

    Top-notch food stalls and cute vintage vendors. Visit the Dough stand -try the lemon and ginger doghnut, it's amazing.

    The papusas are king. Followed by grilled cheese a fish tacos. A strong contender for king is also the pizza!

    Bring cash because there's a single atm with a long line and not many nearby.
