    Moves indoors for Winter to 1 Hanson Place, to a disused HSBC Bank. Find clothes, Vinyl to kitchen homewares. Great to visit but overpriced. Mix of tasty food served from stalls in the vaults!

    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]

    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.

    Food, clothes, furniture, bikes, tons of stuff. Little expensive, but awesome. Make sure to check out the surrounding streets for more impromptu stoop sales.

    Go early. The line grows quickly. Usually they are really quick, but the pickin' gets slim on sunny days. Convenient when you don't want to go to Red Hook & only need a lobster roll fix on Sat.

    Food's straight back, eat lots of small things. Highly recommend the Red Hook Lobster Rolls, and the grilled cheese with spicy pickles. Eat on the steps and enjoy the people and dog watching

    Great stall with vinyl records and original etchings by Jacques Simon. Etchings are $10 each. Just bought a few. Good buy on vinyl. Just head for stall on right of entrance along gate for Ronnie Seein

    Food is always great, the other shopping stands can be a collection of random things. But there are gems to be found. Take your time on a nice day to check it out.

    Watch out for your bike. Mine was stolen today chained right next to the entrance and the "security". It was a northrock white bike with a brown seat and white and pink helmet.

    The best year-round market brings together 150 local vendors carrying all manner of vintage, handmade and antique wares. The Flea will move to its winter location on November 26.

    bring tons of cash if you expect to buy anything, as most vendors take cash only - there is an ATM provided on spot but there's always a huge line & a fee!

    If you weren't hungry when you arrive, you will be when you start smelling the food. For the value conscious, the $5 papusa platter rules with two cheese & jalapeno papusas.
  • Casey P.

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

    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.
