SOUGHT-AFTER street markets Forget neighborhood swap meets and small-time rummage sales; these four famous flea markets dwarf the rest. BY ALEXIS MOORE photos by stacey van berkel Above: A sampling of treasures found at the Brooklyn Flea Market 26 VISIT YOUR LOCAL AAA OFFICE BROOKLYN FLEA Location: Brooklyn, New York From April through mid-October, vendors set up shop outdoors in Fort Greene on Saturdays and Williamsburg on Sundays. Mid-October through March, the Brooklyn Flea moves to a single, indoor location. This winter, Sunset Park's Industry City, one of Brooklyn's oldest manufacturing hubs, plays host to the market's 100 vendors. Unique Treasures: Mostly known for its wide array of antiques and vintage clothing from every era and for every budget, the Brooklyn Flea embraces the rustic look of wooden milk crates and time-worn glass seltzer bottles. "Repurposing vintage items to make bygone looks feel classic put us on the map," says co-founder Eric Demby. Famous Findings: You'll likely find a brush with fame at the market The New York Times hailed as "one of the great urban experiences in New York." Michelle Williams, Tyra Banks and Thurston Moore are just a few recent celeb sightings. CALL 1-800-750-5386 CLICK AAA.COM/TRAVEL http://www.AAA.COM/TRAVEL
