With many activities limited due to the pandemic, the city is making an effort to continuously offer some staple events. The Bronx Night Market and Brooklyn Flea are back, with some changes for safety, however. Welcome to the new normal.
If you don’t know what it is, the Bronx Night Market is a free to attend food and art market at 1 Fordham Plaza. There’s a rotating line-up of over fifty vendors from over twenty different countries, all at affordable prices. Due to the virus, new rules have been put in place. There are set sessions for people to attend. You must wear a mask along with adhering to physical distancing rules. Opening day was September 26th, but the market will be held every Saturday and Sunday from 12-6pm. By attending, you can help support local small businesses. RSVP here.
If you have an eye for design or are looking for cheap finds, you’re in luck. On Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-5pm, you can visit the Brooklyn Flea. On Saturdays you can go to 80 Pearl St near Dumbo in Brooklyn, or to 29 West 25th St in Chelsea, between 5th and 6th Ave, which is also open on Sundays. Who knows what you’ll find — maybe you’ll grow your book collection, or you’ll actually find something to put on that IKEA desk that takes up more space than you want.
