SF Examiner | Opening in Brooklyn: Dekalb Market, Makers – Artists – Farmers – Chefs

Dekalb Market’s tagline is: “Makers – Artists – Farmers – Chefs.” This about sums up the much-anticipated opening of the salvage-shipyard-cum-market in downtown Brooklyn’s Fulton Mall. The market aims to bring together creative entrpreneurs in an otherwise-unused urban space where they can promote, “entrepreneurship, quality, community, and sustainability” through design and operation. Dekalb Market is a joint venture between UK-based Urban Space and Young Woo & Associates.

The space curently houses an incubator farm, food market, performance venue, eateries and work-sell spaces. This past weekend’s musical lineup:

  • DJ RawBeatz, Saturday 4 pm – close
  • DJ Bolex, Sunday 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.

The market’s farm currently has, “Dekalb-grown corn, melons, okra, cherry tomatoes, dragon beans, cucumbers, kale, collards, swiss chard, peppers, herbs and plenty of edible weeds!” Check back to the market’s wesbite weekly for updates.

See below for a selection of just some of the vendors you can find at Dekalb Market:

If you’re interested in becoming a weekend vendor, booth rates are on sale through August for $30 off their regular rates: a 10′ x 6′ booth for $95 per day or a 20′ x 6′ booth for $170 per day.

The Market is open seven days a week. Public hours: 8 a.m. – 10 p.m daily (check specific vendors for their hours as this shifts based on availability of what they offer). Weekend vendors trade from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday. The market is located at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue Extension and Willoughby in Brooklyn.

Dear Dekalb Market worker,

My name is Andres Estrada. I am a veterinarian working in Albuquerque, NM and surrounding areas. I just saw the info regarding the shipping containers that are being “refurbished” and used as offices, houses, etc.

I am interested in learning more about this great idea. Where could I find more information about this?


Andres Estrada, DVM
