Earlier this month, we got a look at the completed 25 Kent, Williamsburg’s first ground-up commercial project in 50+ years. The eight-story building is notable for its bi-partite, ziggurat-like design, as well as its prime waterfront location and open space–all of which make it the perfect spot for an outpost of Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea. The markets announced today that beginning November 2nd and lasting through March 2020, they’ll be operating out of a 25,000-square-foot, top-floor space at the building.

In the summer months, Smorgasburg is held at East River State Park directly across from 25 Kent, and Brooklyn Flea is just a five-minute walk away at 111 Kent. So from a logistics perspective, the new winter location makes sense, but it also speaks to the markets’ long history of innovation in Brooklyn, something 25 Kent brings with it as well. And as Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea co-founder Jonathan Butler said in a statement, it will afford them “the sweetest views our market has ever had.”

Throughout the winter, there will be about 60 vendors at Brooklyn Flea. Some of those confirmed include:

Fifteen to 20 food vendors will set up at Smorgasburg and will include:

Smorgasburg operates three locations during the warmer months–the World Trade Center Oculus Plaza, Prospect Park, and East River State Park in Williamsburg–all of which will close at the end of October. Brooklyn Flea’s Williamsburg and Dumbo locations will also close this month. The winter markets will be open at 25 Kent every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
