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.

I love this place!! Food, music and the sea. It's a bit far from Manhattan but worth it! Open saturday and sunday, I think it.

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

We stumbled upon this market after strolling across the Brooklyn bridge and were very happy to have found it! It was fun to check out the amazing selection and variety of goods that were for sale.

This flea market is not in williamsburg. It is in dumbo and is really under the Manhattan bridge. There were some food vendors. It's not very large but was interesting to walkthrough.

After visiting all the more touristy spots in NYC it is always a joy to relax in Brooklyn at the Flea. Over the years we have bought several items at the flea. It makes you feel like a resident plus the nearby Brooklyn Park has stunning views of Manhattan. Brooklyn is a world unto itself and a peaceful haven away... More

This was a bit of a highlight on our New York trip. Wished I could try all the food there. Nice location as well. As for the market, we found more cool stuff at the one on lafayette av. but still alright.

Lots of people at at this flea market, but its less of a flea market and more of an outdoor artist studio. They have unique, handcrafted and fun items. But they are pricey, again - one of a kind shopping. Food trucks and restaurant items take up a majority of the outdoor space. You are right on the waters edge... More
