DeKalb Market Set to Close Before October

DeKalb MarketBrooklyn’s newest marketplace, is fashioned from salvaged shipping containers. The hipster- and-family friendly destination features more than 30 food, clothing and gift vendors with freight container stores, and a weekend market with more choice jewelry sellers and pop-up eateries.
The cool outdoor setting doubles as a community gathering space with an incubator farm, roller skating nights,  DJ sets and live performances. The market is open seven days a week.  Admission is free. Although it was scheduled to run through the end of December, this week it was announced "the trendy souk" must close before October so that the delayed City Point retail and residential project that will include a Century 21 can get underway. A new location hasn't been disclosed, so be sure to check out DeKalb Market before it's gone.
