Flea markets, like thrift stores and vintage clothing, are gaining more clientele—the Brooklyn Flea is a perfect example.
One sign that flea markets are doing better than ever is their staying power. The Brooklyn Flea happens every weekend—every Saturday in Fort Greene and every Sunday under the Brooklyn Bridge. And each and every weekend it attracts crowds looking for one-of-a-kind souvenirs, classic furniture at cheaper prices, and antique and craft jewelry.
Big weekends are happening every weekend at flea markets, and visitors to the Brooklyn Flea are reaping the benefits.
