It's a new start for the Fulton Stall Market, which closed last fall due to poor sales: The flea has been resurrected inside an indoor, year-round space across the street from the original location at 107 Front Street, DNAinfo reports. Though it's still in its soft-opening phase, manager Stephen Dima plans to eventually host 40 rotating vendors.
"We're looking forward to really utilizing this space," Dima told the publication. "There's a lot of potential here, we're looking forward to the holidays, and to the future here."
The market will welcome back many of the same vendors, including Bugged Out, a handmade children's clothing line, plus newcomers like the Chelsea Market-based Doughnuttery, which specializes in bite-sized donuts (sample flavors: 'fruity cereal' and 'cheesy poof').
"The market was struggling last summer with all the construction, and now we have this lovely new way to be part of the neighborhood," Bugged Out owner Dina Lerman said. "I think all the vendors seem very excited."
There'll also likely be night markets (which are maybe a little too hot right now), live music and children's events. Word comes shortly after warm-weather markets Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg announced that they too would be operating all year long, thanks to a new indoor space in Crown Heights.
