Next Sunday, October 9, downtown Brooklyn's DeKalb Market will stay open late, offering shoppers more food vendors, more local artists, and an indie rock concert after the sun goes down. The Brooklyn Night Bazaar will run 5pm to midnight, with dinner options provided by the likes of Luke’s Lobster and Tortilleria Nixtamal and entertainment provided by YACHT, Monogold, Trouble Andrew, and DJ Sets.
Founder Aaron Broudo tells New York magazine that he was inspired by Thailand's late-night markets, as well as the massive after-dark flea in his hometown of Richmond, British Columbia. Check out the mighty list of vendors, or head here for concert tickets—the show is the only part of the event that's not free.
