Budget Traveler just released a list of the top 5 flea markets in AMERICA and our very own Brooklyn Flea has made an appropriate appearance on their list. We've been fans of the Flea for some time now, not only for the fact that you can get Louis Vuitton steamer trunks, reclaimed furniture, antiques, and tchotckes galore, but you can suck down a cantaloupe basil popsicle from People's Pops while shopping. It's a little bit like "super-thrift" (let's say if vintage was a super hero, he may live here): great food, carefully curated vintage and handicrafts. Alexa Chung just listed the Fort Greene Flea as one of her favorite shopping destinations in Vogue's October issue. If Chung being a regular doesn't scream style cred all over we don't know what does.
The Brooklyn Flea is located on Saturdays from 10- 5 at:
176 Lafayette Ave., Fort Greene, Brooklyn
And on Sundays from 11-6:
Under the Brooklyn Bridge, 22 Water Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn
