Dekalb Market Launched

Looking to get all your shopping done for the week?  A new market close to Fort Greene highlights the best locally-grown produce and products in Brooklyn.

With over a dozen food vendors, an Internet radio station and educational farm, Dekalb Market, a project put together by Urban Space and located on Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn, is looking to become a new sustainable hub for both retailers and the community at large.

Approximately 29 Brooklyn-based purveyors ranging from food vendors to retail stores will be on hand.  There will also be vendors from the Dekalb Farm offering options from educational classes on horticulture from Liberty Sunset Garden Center, to an incubator farm with eight plots.
