It looks like winter is coming for one of the best flea markets in NYC: organizers of the Brooklyn Flea announced on their website that the Flea will return to its old digs at Skylight One Hanson starting the weekend of November 5. Longtime Flea visitors will be pleased to return to the former Williamsburg Savings Bank Tower, which was the Flea’s winter home until 2012, according to Time Out NY.

Every weekend through March, more than 75 vintage and craft vendors will take over the tower’s main hall, with 25 Smorgasburg food trucks and booths—including Mighty Quinn’s, Oaxaca and Charlie’s Chicken— setting up shop in the downstairs vault.

“Flea organizers are currently applying for a liquor license so that they can equip the weekend institution with two stacked wine, beer and cider bars, which would take the indoor experience to a new level,” according to TONY.

The Brooklyn Flea moves to Skylight One Hanson on Saturday November 5. You can visit their website to check out current locations.
