With the citywide quarantine now in full effect, Fulton Street Mall, City Point and Downtown Brooklyn– normally a buzzing metropolis of socialites and shoppers– have become a ghost town, as residents shelter in.
But none of that is stopping Dekalb Market Hall from keeping the energy jumping and the spirit alive!
The popular food hall known, not only for its bevy of delicious food options but also, for its social meetups, music performances and dance parties. Well, after a two-week break, the food market has resumed the fun but moved it to where most of America hangs out these days — on social media– with a daily schedule of DJ sets, dancing and trivia live streamed on its Instagram page @DekalbMarketHall.
