The moment has FINALLY arrived!! Dekalb Market is OFFICIALLY Open For Business!! Grub Street has put together a comprehensive guide to help you plan your day. Come meet all the Makers, Artists, Farmers and Chefs who are the heart and soul of Brooklyn’s own Dekalb Market.

We’ve already told you the highlights, but DeKalb Market has released its full list of who’ll be hawking what out of repurposed shipping containers come July 23. In addition to previously announced tenants like Maharlika, Robicelli’s, andCheeky Sandwiches, you’ll also be able buy mini-doughnuts from Cuzin’s Duzin and fare from Trattoria Pasticcio, plus a full list you can see below. It wouldn’t be much of a market without shopping, so there’s plenty to ogle whilst noshing, and there’s also that urban farm with plots kept up by community organizations like 3rd Ward and the Brooklyn Grange, which will host a bunch of workshops and events. And since pretty much nothing is complete without a beer garden these days, one of those is in the works, too. Assuming the spot secures its booze license, Brooklyn Brewery and Brooklyn Bodega plan to head that up.

DeKalb Market is located on Flatbush Ave. near Willoughby St., Fort Greene
