  • Several vendors selling their products. Some unique finds some mediocre. If you have time it is okay but not mandatory.  more »

  • Had a day in W'burg exploring its vintage shops etc and naturally headed here. As I had expected based on other reviewers, this market is not so big but there are many interesting stalls in a great fu...  more »

  • cute little stalls, ranging from hand crafted jewellery, vintage clothing, art, candles and soaps. Definitely the kind of place you’d walk out of with an impulse buy you likely won’t regret too much. (Lord knows I did). I did get the “resellers and large companies in small stalls” vibe people are commenting on. I was told about it by a friend who has a stall there, and, I’ll be honest, I was expecting something more “flea market”, and less “weekend retail”, but let’s be real: it’s in the middle of Williamsburg. And for me, it didn’t detract from the lovely experience of interacting with and seeing the wears of smaller artists and craftspeople.
  • Nice place to shop for cool stuff. But I have noticed that most of the people engage in just window shopping here. Don't be surprised if you find items on sale here are exorbitantly priced. Some of the items on sale seem to be rare and of vintage quality. One can also find cute items which can be bought as souvenirs. This place is very close to the Smorgasbord, the weekly food festival that happens on the Kent Avenue nearby. Also close to the North Williamsburg Pier where one can catch a ferry to Wall Street or Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1.
  • Cute little “hole in the wall” location, a “walk to fast and you’ll miss it” kind of place. But once you’re in it, it immediately sucks you in with all the cute little stalls, ranging from hand crafted jewellery, vintage clothing, art, candles and soaps. Definitely the kind of place you’d walk out of with an impulse buy you likely won’t regret too much. (Lord knows I did).

  • There are some cool vendors and items here, and its worth stopping by and taking a loop around. On average there is a lot of unique things made by artists to purchase which is nice, but its generally overshadowed by the larger booths (owned by actual businesses with a flagship location) who can afford a larger footprint and more staff to sell things... I think this should be for artists and craftsman alike who really need a chance to break into the small retail markets their products are fit for. There really isn't nothing artist or flea like about already successful businesses with more than one location.....
  • Really interesting concept a lot of nice little stores. Would recommend to go. You might even find something you'll like. Now do be advised the area on weekends tends to get crowded so expect a crowd.
