You'd be hard-pressed to find a public space that hasn't yet been anointed with at least one iteration of sister events Brooklyn Flea or Smorgasburg, from the new Prospect Park Smorgasburg location to this summer's shipping containers on Coney Island. And while the duo headed to Crown Heights for winter last year, this time they're venturing south to Sunset Park's Industry City.
Brownstoner reports that from October 17th through March 27th, both will be located inside a 50,000-square-foot space on the second floor of 241 37th Street. Included among the 40 or so food options: Blue Marble Ice Cream, Home Frite, and Mofongo, as well as more than 100 vintage fashion, home decor, antique, and craft vendors from the Brooklyn Flea. Unlike last year, it'll be the only place to get your Flea and Smorgasburg fix over the winter — but until the cold weather hits, you've got plenty to shop in Fort Greene, Williamsburg, Prospect Park, Queens, the South Street Seaport, Coney Island, Central Park, and Park Slope (phew!).
