Warm-weather markets Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg now have a home for winter: In today's most delicious example of synergy, the fairs' co-founders Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby are bringing both to 1000 Dean Street in Crown Heights, just around the corner from their new beer and food hall Berg'n, Eater reports.
"The setup will be somewhat similar to our winter market last year in Williamsburg, just a different location—albeit a far more pleasant one," Demby said. (Last year, the Williamsburg Flea operated out of 185 Wythe Avenue during the colder months.)
From November 8th through March 2015, the 30,000-square-foot ground floor of 1000 Dean Street will house over 100 vendors. One can only hope the space will allow for a far more pleasant experience than Butler and Demby's ill-fated stint in Central Park.
