Miss the Saturday Brooklyn Flea at Fort Greene? Don’t worry, you can always catch it in Williamsburg on Sunday. Miss it that day too? Well, you’re SOL, at least until Columbus Day, when finally, finally one of those Brooklyn Flea expansions we’ve been hearing about comes to Park Slope. Which, how did it ever take so long to end there in first place?
Yes that’s right, a third Brooklyn Flea outpost here in Brooklyn, and in the spiritual home of all that is precious and Bryce and Ashleigh. The market will be setting up Saturdays and Sundays at Park Slope’s PS 321 on 7th Avenue, in a spot where another flea market was held previously. This market will have about 40 vendors, which is smaller than the Fort Greene and Williamsburg markets, but makes sense, since it’s going to be in front of a school.
Of course, in replacing an existing flea market in Park Slope, we’ll just have to hope that the Brooklyn Flea doesn’t get any ideas about becoming “Big Flea.” If they try to start muscling out Brooklyn’s other flea markets, in attempt to become the Duane Reade or Chase bank of flea markets, it could be too late to stop them. Oh hey, looks like we’ve got our first problem for Mayor de Blasio to handle.
