Check it out: a new flea market for Bed Stuy! The Akichi Flea Market is now open in the vacant lot on the corner of Fulton Street and Spencer Place. (Exact location is 1177 Fulton Street.) It’ll be open every weekend until this October. I gave it a quick walk through — there was lots of clothing, shoes and some vintage knick knacks. The lot is pretty large and it looks like there’s room to expand. Indeed, Akichi is looking for more vendors. They’d like to host “vendors of furniture, vintage clothing, collectibles and antiques, as well as a tightly curated selection of jewelry, art, and crafts by local artisans and designers.” Vendor pricing is $75 a day. If you’re interested in selling here, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And good news for those Bed Stuyers who wish there were more green markets in the neighborhood. The folks at Akichi also plan to start holding a green market here on Fridays.
