With the well-established Chelsea flea market in Manhattan shrinking as the high-rise condo market expands, so is the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene also growing. These days, 200 vendors congregate every Sunday (rain or shine) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. No Manhattan snobbery here since sharp-eyed bargain hunters from the entire region shop for everything from antique furniture (costing thousands) to cupcakes to pristine prints from area photographers. Also on hand: Vintage clothing, distinctive jewelry, designer threads, hard-to-find records, out-of-print books and, of course, grandma’s priceless ceramic pitcher.
East River Waterfront (btw. North 6th and 7th Streets)
