Brooklyn Flea

Sunday, May 11th, 2008 | All Things, Eats

At Brooklyn Flea — one of the city’s newest weekly markets, held Sundays at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School in Fort Greene:

The wares seem not much different from what one would find at the markets in Hell’s Kitchen or on Columbus Avenue) — though with greater emphasis on hipster-friendly crafts — but the food offerings are much improved over what one would come across on my side of the river: Salvatore Bklyn ricotta and cannoli; Blue Marble Ice Cream; Wafels & Dinges; pies from LaCrosta Pie Co.; Kumquat Cupcakery (distributing free miniature cupcakes this afternoon)…

Expected later this month: Brooklyn-made products like Brownstone Beans and Wheelhouse Pickles and CSA-favorite and immigrant-supporting breads from Hot Bread Kitchen. 

Check out The New York Times feature on the eats at Brooklyn Flea, which also notes the highly anticipated arrival of the food vendors from the Red Hook ball fields.
