The view from across the river is worth the trip! We enjoyed looking at all of the vendor's wares and finds. We bought a few things that would fit in our suitcases. The repurposed items and handmade things were the most enjoyable. It was nice to be outside for a while and just wander. We ate at the Smorgasbourd next... More

Flea stuff, yes. But used baseballs are sold 3-5$ each. You can go to supermarket to buy two with 3$ and roll them in mud yourself. Some good stuff (artist made), but not so many good finds that you may think. Tourist atraction that sells same stuff on sundays in Dumbo. This one has the smorgasburg so go here. +... More

The Brooklyn flea has a variety of vendors...but we didn;t really come to shop. Just to gawk and the items available, do some people watching and have a quick but very tasty lunch. Of course it is crowded, but not unreasonably so. Food: get the pork belly rice bowl....yum!

Visited two years ago and market has now moved locations. Not near as good- fewer stalls, not many food suppliers and food hall not a lot at h on the old beer hall. Waste of time- we only stated half an hour. Where have all the old flea stalks gone?

Though I've gone to a lot of flea markets in my lifetime, this one had a relatively limited variety of goods, and pricing was actually on the high side for a flea market. We went as part of a business event, and a lot of people did buy the customized hand painted tote bags, which were being sold for charitable... More

Went along to see the stalls of food that was getting served and hoped to try some of it. Had a pint in the bar and then got something to eat from one of the outlets (over 100 there) and went to the small beach looking across to Manhattan to enjoy my meal.

Fun to browse but if you want to take things home and you're not staying/living near by it can be a real dilemma
