»· Local Jaunt : Brooklyn Flea (Fort Greene) ·«

August 25, 2011

A few weekends ago my friend Erin and I rode our bikes to Fort Greene to eat some treats and wander around the Brooklyn Flea. Some of you may recall me writing about the indoor portion Brooklyn Flea a little over a year ago (see here), but the Brooklyn Flea I’m referring to in this post is outdoors (as a flea market should be) and only open between April and November.

There are few things I love more than a good flea market. Aside from my love of rummaging through other people’s “junk,” (my brother’s and I actually used to go dumpster diving…), I also draw a lot of my inspiration from just walking around and seeing what other people are selling. For example, I’d been in the market for a new way to organize my make-up and perfumes but was stumped as to how I wanted to go about it. Then I saw this mirrored tray at the Flea and boom!, suddenly I had a new way to display my products!

What I love about Brooklyn Flea is that the food is equally as important as the shopping vendors. Lobster rolls, watermelon juice, brisket, and tacos are just a few of the delicious goodies surrounding the flea market premises and I only wish I had the time and room to to try it all. Erin and I had plans to eat lunch at a nearby restaurant so I only got some watermelon juice and sliced mango, but it’s a rare occasion that I pass up a lobster roll…or a taco…or a Porchetta sandwich.

Although I went to the Flea just a few weeks ago, I’m hoping that, weather permitting, I’ll have a chance to go back sometime this weekend. If not for a vintage watch, then at least for the amazing lobster rolls…yum!

{ Undecided if this is reaaaaally creepy or kind of awesome… }
