This is a good place to buy stuff with good price. I wish I lived in NY so that I could buy those vintage vynil players they were selling. Also, it has a nice view of Manhattan.

We checked out this flea market during our recent trip to NYC. It is a short subway ride from downtown Manhattan, and was a good place to visit on a sunny Fall day. It is smaller than I had imagined, but has lots of vintage clothing and jewelry. It also has local designers showcasing their work. There is also an... More

Good place to go on a Sunday morning. Its not easy to describe the route from the subway station, but it isn't hard to find - head back towards the river and then north. Good range of vintage and memorabilia, clothes, jewelery, letter press stuff, nostalgic old toys, pictures and the like. Also some interesting food stalls. Take the opportunity... More

Not that it will make much difference in a few months, but have no shade on a stinking hot day at a market makes for an unpleasant experience..... heck it was hot today. We didn't see everything on offer due to the heat. Pretty good market. Some hefty prices, a bit of junky junk. Good market, not excellent.

Cool stalls, good food and amazing people watching. Saturdays and Sundays at different locations. A must for a trip to Brooklyn.

With all the hype about Williamsburg being the hip, cool part of Brooklyn I was expecting the Flea Market to have lots of vendors with unusual, hand-made items (think Etsy) but it was a traditional flea market with vintage items that you'd probably be able to see at most other flea markets. It was nice to see but there's not... More

Unfortunately it was very hot at the day we visited this flea market but this did not keep us away from all the funny and nice things and people. Good for a Sunday!

This is a relatively small flea market. I think the Sunday market has lots more food, but I wasn't moved by the stuff.
