One of New York's favourite flea markets, Brooklyn Flea Market is like a bohemian Aladdin's cave. On sunny days, bargain hunters come from afar to soak up the unique ambiance of Williamsburg and to stroll along the East River while gazing at the Manhattan skyline. Every Saturday from the first weekend of April to the end of October, some 150 traders come to sell their wares, ranging from antiques to hand-crafted jewellery and retro clothes. You will be tempted to stay the whole day! Luckily, you can rely on the food trucks for refreshment, with their array of affordable, multicultural food and drink.
The original Brooklyn Flea Market is actually held on Sundays. In the summer months, the Dumbo district (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) comes to life with the 250 or so stalls selling goods of all kinds, from vintage furniture to second-hand clothes, original ornaments, and other objects by local designers.
When the weather is colder, from November to April, the Sunday flea market moves indoors to Industry City, an historic shipping, warehousing, and manufacturing hub in south Brooklyn, so it can continue to operate through the winter.
