This past weekend was the last stand for the Chelsea Flea Market, which will became the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market! Yes, you may or may not find bargains at 39th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues, in the shadow of the Port Authority, in the fumes of the Lincoln Tunnel, starting this weekend. The Village Voice interviewed Flea Market founder Alan Boss, who confirmed that he found a space for a flea market on Smith Street in Brooklyn, has a dim view of politicians, and says describes vendors as being "a cross between gypsies and circus people" (a good thing).

Will you be following the Flea Market to Hell's Kitchen? And there are other things to buy in Hell's Kitchen, like groceries at the Ninth Avenue shops and Big Apple Meat Market.
