Hot new trend: Markets in Greenpoint churches. The Greenpoint Food Market (recently the subject of a glowing Times article and a subsequent DOH investigation) gets a little sibling today in the form of the Greenpoint Flea Market Bazaar. Unlike the food-centric Church of the Messiah bazaar, the new flea, located at the Greenpoint Reformed Church just off Franklin Street, carries vintage clothing, jewelry, and records as well as snacks. And unlike Fleas all over the rest of the city, it's a weekday-only event, running noon to 8pm every Friday through August. (Feel free to insert joke a about unemployed hipsters here, although in defense of North Brooklynites, there's definitely a Summer Fridays factor at play.) Vendors include Brooklyn Flea stalwart Jelly Roll Vintage, all-natural beauty suppliers Brooklyn Botanics, and girly local label 3Free.
