Brooklyn Indie Market Gets New Home on Smith Street

The Brooklyn Indie Market has a new home on Smith Street. The collective of emerging designers will set up shop starting on May 5 under tents and in kiosks at the corner of Smith and Union Streets, which is near the Carroll Street station on the F Train. The booths and tents were set up more than a year ago and have been largely vacant, so it's great to know that the wonderful designers working with the group will have a home and that the space will be productively utilized. It's potentially a great location and its under-use has been puzzling. The new market will run from 11AM until 7PM and will offer everything from fashions and accessories to pet gear and paper products. We've checked out the offerings of the 20 designers involved and can vouch that there's some very cool stuff available. The market will run every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year.

Wish the quality was better. Most of the objects are barely one step above street-fair crap.
