Coming off the Q train at Dekalb Avenue in Brooklyn, I stumbled upon the super-cute Dekalb Market. How had this place managed to hide from me all this time??
The market, open year-round, with exception of January, February and March, features only small local businesses: food shops, jewelry and clothing boutiques and more! It also has a beer garden and DJ.
This is one of the two dozen or so vendors in Dekalb Market. Some vendors were set up in tents…
And some had pop-up stores in salvaged shipping containers like these.
I am a sucker for cupcakes. This key lime cupcake from Robicelli’s was amazing.
Fudge sea salt brownie, also from Robicelli’s. I wanted 10, but I just stuck to 1.

My favorite thing about Dekalb Market was the jewelry selection. For a funky accessory-aholic like myself, this was heaven. Most of the pieces were handmade, sold by the jewelry maker him or herself. I wanted one of everything, but I ended up snagging these feather earrings.
Upcoming: DM is having a Fashion’s Night Out event Thursday, September 8 from 6-11pm, featuring one-hour open bar, fashion show, and vendor specials all night.
