What you missed at Mister Market

Last weekend after a lovely brunch, I meandered over to Mister Market—a new flea market in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Out of literally hundreds of markets in New York City, what is so special about this one?...

Booths were set up in the Public Assembly and featured everything from electronics to food and clothing. The space was fairly intimate and even had a bar with drink specials like southern iced tea (heavily spiked of course).

Another standout booth was from Kill Devil Hill, a store in Greenpoint, whose owner Mary Brockman happened to be the organizer of Mister Market as well. It was a great eclectic mix of great unique vintage pieces like a top hat and some corn cob pipes and locally produced products like stationary and beer and pretzel caramels. Her father even makes soap with a natural bug repellant in it (“it really works,” she said) that was displayed in amazing vintage attach&eacute. In fact, her vintage selection is so well curated that Brockman routinely rents things out to stylists as props for shoots.
