Beginning November 8th, Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby, co-founders of the outdoor food courts and markets, will be moving a similar version of The Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg to a 30,000 sq ft space on Dean Street in Crown Heights for the winter. The Dean St space is around the corner from their brand new beer and food hall, Berg’n. The winter market will have a very similar layout to the way it was set up in Williamsburg. Over 100 vendors from The Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg will be present in the space on 1000 Dean Street on weekends starting in November and running through till March 2015.
Commenting on the neighboring Berg’n, Jonathan Butler states, “We wanted to have a business that wasn’t just on weekends and wasn’t reliant on the weather.” Berg’n will have a similar feel in atmosphere as the outdoor markets. Eric Demby states, “I think people really appreciate the way we have kind of creatively transformed the feeling at the outdoor markets, which is impossible to concentrate into a brick-and-mortar space in the literal sense.”
