About Dekalb Market:

This downtown Brooklyn hotspot (open 7 days a week) made quite an impact last year around the holiday season with it's unique approach to retail, housing an array of pop-up shops and gourmet food vendors in repurposed shipping containers...and this year brings even more reason to stop by: an outdoor beer and wine garden, live music, and monthly events such as bike-in movie nights, roller derby, food festivals, dance parties, and SO much more!
