Further details have been released regarding the transition of the Park Slope PS 321 flea market to Brooklyn Flea powers. Longstanding vendors from the Fort Greene and Williamsburg branches of the Flea will be "sprinkled in" among the existing antique and vintage vendors, joined by "a crop of new faces" from the Flea's vendor waiting list.
"Let's shine a spotlight on what we consider the heart and soul of the Flea—vintage, antiques, and handmade—and create a neighborhood market that harkens back to our roots at Ye Olde Schoolyard in Fort Greene circa 2008," said a recent Brooklyn Flea blog post.
This translates to 40 vendors each weekend, only one of which will be selling food (get ready for that line). As for layout? "Vintage clothes on monkey bars? Got 'em. Jumbles of jewelry on the jungle gym? Yup." The revamped flea launches Saturday, October 12th and will run each weekend, including through the holiday season.
