NYC's hipster wonderland, the Brooklyn Flea, will makes its debut here in Philly on Sunday, June 2. The popular, celeb-favorite bazaar will be hosted by The Piazza in Northern Liberties, with a flavor very similar to its Brooklyn counterpart. "Some of the basic approach that has made it such a special place in Brooklyn will apply down there," says Brooklyn Flea co-founder Jonathan Butler. "You've got to try to have a balance of categories. We're going to bring that approach but make it local and discover the many great vendors in the Philly area."
The market promises 100 vendors of antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing, jewelry, art, and handmade goods, along with a variety of local and Brooklyn-based food vendors.
