DUMBO Flea

A weekly flea market featuring 75 vendors of vintage, antique, handmade, and food, in a unique, historic neighborhood setting with a scenic view of New York City

Founded in April 2008, Brooklyn Flea has grown into one of New York City’s top attractions, operating flea markets every weekend of the year that feature hundreds of top vendors of furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques, as well as a tightly curated selection of jewelry, art, and crafts by local artisans and designers, plus delicious fresh food. The New York Times called the Flea “One of the great urban experiences in New York”, and is regularly ranked by many magazines as one of the best markets in the U.S.

Until 2013, Brooklyn Flea was located inside a historic landmark known as One Hanson (the former Brooklyn bank built in the 1920s) showcasing limestone and marble interiors, with intricate mosaics. Nowadays, Brooklyn Flea holds 3 distinct markets over 8 locations around the city.

Starting the first weekend in April through November, the flea market take place outdoors in DUMBO. The Sunday Flea in DUMBO features 75 vendors of vintage, antique, handmade, and food, in a unique, historic neighborhood setting. The market is open every week, rain or shine, and is dog-friendly. From November through March, the Brooklyn Flea moves indoors within Industry City’s premises, and takes the name of Brooklyn Winter Flea + Holiday Market.

The Flea also operates Smorgasburg, a giant all-food market that launched in May 2011 and happens Saturdays in Williamsburg and Sundays at Prospect Park’s Breeze Hill. Smorgasburg showcases the best of Brooklyn’s artisanal food scene, with 100 local and regional vendors in a beautiful outdoor setting.

If you don’t walk away with the perfect art deco vanity, you will leave with a full stomach. Food is a major focal point of the Brooklyn Flea, and you’ll find one of the best smattering of tacos, cupcakes, lobster rolls, cannoli and Asian-inspired hot dogs in the country.

Antiquing Tip Of The Day

Successful flea marketers rely on instinct. If you’re considering a particular item for purchase, keep your hand on the goods. This signals to the dealer and other potential buyers that you spotted it first.

  1. I am from Oklahoma City where we have lots of flea markets. Thought prices were a little steep, but this might be the prices New York brings. Had to many booths with vintage clothing, but you had THE BEST food booths I have ever seen at a flea market! Had the first Ramen Noodle Burger I had ever had- delicious!! Hope to visit again some day.

  2. I used to love the Brooklyn flea, it was a one-stop destination for a ton of great vendors, from food to arts and crafts to vintage and antiques. Today, after going to the new location in DUMBO, I was distressed to find a tiny group of vendors and virtually no food, hardly worth the trip. It seems the flea has now been split between Dumbo, Prospect Park and Grand Army Plaza on Sundays, all of which are far-flung and hard to jump around to. I have been a Brooklyn flea market regular for years, but they’ve lost my business until they find a way to get the vendors back in one spot again.

  3. DUMBO Flea is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon on Saturday or Sunday. There are so many unique finds, great vintage items, & fabulous food!

  4. Awesome good deals and Food was great! 1st time, will be back.

  5. A lot of awesome used stuff with reasonable price.

  6. Reasonable prices and lots of one of a kind items. Will go Anytime I have the opportunity.

  7. Every piece being sold felt like a piece of art, the vibe was chill, lovely people, amazing food and drinks at Bergn’s. This place is awesome.

  8. Fun place to spend part of the Saturday or Sunday.
