Food hall operator Urbanspace, known for hosting annual holiday markets in Union Square and Columbus Circle, announced last week that it will be opening a new location in Downtown Brooklyn just in time for the holiday season. Located in Columbus Park in Downtown Brooklyn, the new Brooklyn Borough Hall market will open on November 28 and run through December 26. Applications are being accepted for vendors at the new market until September 1, which can be submitted here.

Urbanspace is focused on giving vending opportunities and exposure to Brooklyn-based minority-owned businesses to reflect the borough’s diversity, creativity, and entrepreneurship. Supported by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, Brooklyn Heights Association, and the Montague BID, the new market will feature 100 vendors.

“Brooklyn-owned businesses contribute tremendously to our city’s economy, and supporting and highlighting these businesses is critically important to me,” Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso said.

“This year’s inaugural holiday market off the steps of Borough Hall is sure to do just that, while spreading holiday cheer. I encourage Brooklyn-owned businesses to apply for their space at the Brooklyn holiday market this year.”

The market will be conveniently located close to the 2, 3, 4, 5, and R subway lines.

Other holiday markets run by Urbanspace are located at Union Square, Columbus Circle, and Bryant Park. In addition to holiday markets, Urbanspace has a number of food hall locations around the city. More information on those spots can be found here.

“The new Urbanspace holiday market at Borough Hall is a great example of how we can activate underutilized public space and create opportunities for a diverse cross-section of small businesses from around the borough to reach new customer bases,” Council Member Lincoln Restler.
