The Brooklyn Flea



Yesterday J and I went on an adventure to the Brooklyn Flea.  This was definitely one of the most amazing flea markets that I've ever been to.  It wasn't your typical flea market with people trying to sell you jumbo containers of faux Clorox wipes and markers called "Skarpie" markers.  There were artists, vintage clothing and accessories, handmade furniture, homemade edible delicacies, etc.  During the winter months the market is hosted in the old Williamsburg Savings Bank.  Downstairs in the vault are food vendors.  The smells that flow through the vault are mouthwatering.  Jason treated me to a homemade donut with chocolate frosting, one of my all time favorite classic combinations!  The donuts were big and fluffy and sprinkled with candy pieces!  There was also this amazing looking coconut donut with coconut shavings on top... maybe next time.  I also sampled these pickles (one flavored with garlic and the other with spicy peppers) that someone had made and jarred which were by far the best pickles I've ever tasted.  Ever!

And so our journey started here... on the N train into Brooklyn.
