An Evening at Dekalb Market. Saturday Nov. 26: Dekalb Market — where shops are set up in repurposed shipping containers, surrounding a tented area with picnic tables from which to enjoy food truck grub and drinks — is hosting a special post-Thanksgiving shopping event. Vendors are coming together for an evening of food, live music and more from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The market is relatively new, and a surprisingly fun place to hang out. Enjoy live beats from BBOX Radio, a tented area to enjoy the eats and beers, and lots of treats. Some items will be discounted 10% as part of the event.
The market is partnering with the Food Bank of New York City–for every can of food you bring you get one raffle ticket to win over $500 worth of gifts from vendors.
Located in downtown Brooklyn, just off Fulton Street, the market is a collection of salvaged shipping containers housing 50 individual shops open daily. Weekends bring more vendors.
Dekalb Market is located at 138 Willoughby Street Brooklyn, NY 11201, accessed by the B, Q, and R trains at Dekalb Ave; 2 and 3 trains at Hoyt Street; G train at Hoyt/Schermerhorn; and the A, C, and F trains at Jay Street Metro Tech.
