From morning till afternoon, whether at Fort Greene or Downtown Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Flea is a lively market not only attracting residents from Brooklyn but also New Yorkers from the other boroughs. Even if you have no intention to buy, Brooklyn Flea is still worth visiting. The flea market is the place for antiques, vintage furniture, jewelry, artworks, crafts, music, and especially used clothes. However, there are new clothes and other merchandise sold at bargain prices but do not expect brand names here. Do not miss the foods at the Brooklyn Flea including mouth-watering pizza, hot dogs, tacos, pickles, cookies, and pastries to name a few.

The Brooklyn Flea Market (not to be confused with Brooklyn Flea) is held on Saturdays at 194 20th Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. Vendors here offer a range of vintage items including clothes, stamps, housewares, jewelry, memorabilia, and the occasional bric-brac. Another flea market in Brooklyn is the Park Slope Flea Market held on Saturdays and Sundays between 1st and 2nd Streets on Seventh Avenue. Not as big as the Brooklyn Flea or Brooklyn Flea Market but still an interesting flea market offering old items such as clothes, artworks, furniture, and antiques.
