Brooklyn Flea Will Retain Its Wintery Digs, Announces New Vendors


Although warmer weather beckons, the Brooklyn Flea has become so enamored of its winter home in the majestic lobby of the Williamsburg Savings Bank that it will retain it during the summer months. Diner’s Journal reports that when the market kicks off its summer season in April, it will remain in One Hanson Place on Sundays. Saturdays the Flea will be in its original location in Fort Greene.

The new season will also bring new and still fairly new vendors, which you can see after the jump.

Sigmund Pretzel Shop will sell its grand, pillowy, “very New York” pretzels, while its East Village neighbor Porchetta will ply the crowds with its namesake pork sandwiches.

The Good Fork’s Sohui Kim and Ben Schneider will be bringing steamed dumplings from Red Hook, and the Carroll Gardens-based Salvatore Bklyn will return with their ethereal ricotta, dispensed this year in recycled wine bottles.

The Milk Truck will also be doing dairy duty with their grilled cheese sandwiches, while SCRATCHbread will be supplying an assortment of baked goods. The Good Batch, another Brooklyn-based bakery, will be providing more sweet succor with their Stroopwafels.

Kors d’Oeuvres will also be on hand with an assortment of dips, which can all be chased with sodas from Brooklyn Soda Works, which, like just about everything else at the Flea, carry the prefixes of local, artisanal, and handmade.
