Yesterday Jonathan Butler unleashed the Brooklyn Flea upon the borough, and even Marty Markowitz showed up (perhaps to find replacement placemats for his wife?). Butler tells us that "While we could have asked for better weather, we couldn't have asked for a better turnout or better vibes from all the visitors and vendors."

Those good "vibes" radiated out towards the local establishments as well, Andrew Tarlow tells us his Fort Greene Bonita fared well yesterday: "From my standpoint we had an amazing day at the restaurant. It was busier than usual." The trickle down is in effect! And it's good to see the subway problems didn't hinder the fleasters from scooping up goods at the market; but expect some bigger crowds as the weather warms up!
