This past Saturday and Sunday was the inaugural weekend of The Dekalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn. Luckily we shot loads of photos, so you can check out this unique arrangement of 22 shipping containers and the handmade, vintage and artisinal culinary treats inside them. The market will run seven days a week, year-round and will stay open as late as 10pm serving cans of beer from Brooklyn Brewery for those looking for a bar alternative. Shoppers and eaters can enjoy the music provided by Brooklyn Bodega, a hip hop events company, publication and indie label. In addition to 10 regular food vendors and dozens of shops and booths, there’s also a large garden being used by several local non-profits, each with a different purpose running the gamut of culinary and gardening instruction, job training for high-schoolers, research, and adult training on the DIY design and the construction of green roofs.

Check out the details and photos below.
