The Brooklyn Flea kicked off in its new Park Slope location this weekend, uprooting a neighborhood market that operated out of the space for decades.

The market is now being held at 180 Seventh Avenue, P.S. 321’s playground, a spot co-founder Eric Demby said is less likely to turn into the crowded tourist destination the market became in locations in Fort Greene and Williamsburg over the years.

“It’s a fifth the size of the other locations — it can’t even get that crowded,” Demby told the Brooklyn Paper. “Our expectation is that it will be a more local attraction and a more local clientele.”

The Flea, which recently added outposts in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., to its locations in Fort Greene at Lafayette Avenue between Clermont and Vanderbilt avenues and in Williamsburg, where it recently snagged indoor digs at 185 Wythe Avenue, has a two-year contract with the Department of Education to use the city-owned space.
