What's New? (Flea and Smorg)
There's a beautiful autumn weekend ahead—see you at the Flea and Smorg!
Saturday, Nov. 5 (Smorgasburg in Williamsburg):
A number of new vendors were slated to start last week, but well, weather. Check out our post from last Thursday to learn more about Brooklyn Cured's stuffing balls, Smore Bakery's S'morgasm, and the lamb-fat lard from Charlito's Cocina. They'll all be there on Saturday, along with a few other new delights.
Butter + Love - This Brooklyn-based baking company has sold at the Flea before (in a shared booth with Maiden Preserves), but has now branched out solo at Smorg. All cookies are made with a "lil' bit of butter and a lot of love," including the famous gingerbread mustache cookie. Owner Alison Walla will be bringing her mini sage caramel apple pies and vanilla pear muffins, as well as a couple of new items, like pumpkin shortbread and brown butter walnut & fig jam sandwich cookies.
Pizza Moto - Pizza at Smorgabsurg! Flea regulars know and love Pizza Moto, and we are super psyched to welcome Dave and his big-deal oven to Smorg for the first time. For more about Pizza Moto, check out the Featured Vendor story we did a few months back.
Spicy 'n Sweet - The freshest of fresh tomato sauce is the product here, from a new local company. True to the name, there's a spicy version and a sweet one, all made in small batches by a real live Italian grandmother.
Saturday, Nov. 5 (Flea in Fort Greene):
A few newcomers who got snowed out last week are giving it another chance, notably Madécasse with their chocolate and vanilla from Madagascar and Printed Matter who will be bringing art books and zines (both will be in Fort Greene on Saturday). More info on those vendors can be found here, in last week's What's New post. But that's not all!
Christian Rathbone - This booth offers made-to-order, hand-knotted and naturally dyed rugs from original designs by a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council. All of the rugs are made in Turkey using traditional methods. Christian will be at the Flea both days, in Fort Greene on Saturday and Williamsburg on Sunday.
Sunday, Nov. 6 (Flea in Williamsburg):
Babylon Antique Shoppe - Long Island–based, longtime dealers now at the Flea with original antiques, collectibles and authentic nostalgia items.
Chameleon Restoration - Film posters, art posters and all sorts of paper ephemera from this husband-and-wife team whose primary business concentrates on paper and collectibles restoration.
Saul Zalta - This new vendor promises books, records, cds, electronics, clothing and shoes.
