Interview with a Local: Anna Ward, Artists & Fleas Market Manager

Interview with a Local: Anna Ward, Artists & Fleas Market Manager

If you’re local, you have likely been to Artists and Fleas. If not, according to Founders Amy and Ronen, Artists & Fleas is, “Part community gathering spot, part hipster haven, Artists & Fleas has hosted thousands of artists and vendors since opening its doors. It's a place where buyers find unique designs, artists and vintage collectors in an atmosphere that’s in the tradition of old world marketplaces with a firm foot in what is contemporary, original and hip.” 

They first opened their doors in an empty warehouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and have since expanded to Chelsea Market in NYC, downtown Los Angeles as well as Venice, CA.

Artists & Fleas is still a fave!

April 15, 2015 Happy tax day! If you haven't been to Artists & Fleas on North 7th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, you are missing out!

The Best Brunch in Williamsburg Brooklyn

We are frequently asked for our favorite brunch spot in Williamsburg. Why? Well because people brunch before our SUNDAY FUNDAY Williamsburg Brooklyn tour of course!  So we decided to share our list:

  1. El Almacen - the atmospherics are amazing. so quaint. so chic. and the fact that it's argentine and run by argentines doesn't hurt. Rosarito Fish Shack and Shelter Pizza are all in the same family. reasonably priced and delicious.
  2. Station Restaurant - conveniently located where most of our tours start! this is a hit for the yummy food and BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH. Enjoy!
  3. Two Door Tavern - RED. VELVET. PANCAKES. The end.
  4. Cafe Mogador - otherwise known as, the old standby. always fun, always delicious. try to sit in the atrium in the back. 
  5. Juliette - see above. plus you can sit outside on their roof deck (when it's warm enough) , drink rose and pretend to be French. Tre chic!

Honorable mentions (mostly because of the wait) include: Egg, Five Leaves, Sweet Chick, Diner, and Pies-N-Thighs. If you want to go all fancy on us, check out The Elm or Allswell. And for pizza brunch: Motorino!

Don't forget to take our boozy SUNDAY FUNDAY Williamsburg Brooklyn tour!

Like A Local Featured in Wanderable!

Wanderable enjoyed our Sunday Funday Brooklyn Tour and we are now featured on their website and in this article: Cool As A Cucumber: Indulging in the Refined Tastes of Williamsburg, Brooklyn - Ahhh, Williamsburg: the world capital of rooftop gardens, abstract geometric tattoos, and artisanal espresso drinks. There are many neighborhoods all over the planet that attempt to emulate it, but Williamsburg is the real deal. No imitators can compete with the effortless swagger of this painfully artistic hood. You’ll walk around holding hands with your best friend & lover and gaze at the lanky bohemian spirits in a universe where shaving is totally optional. With all that in mind, we’re grateful to announce to you our new partnerships with Like A Local & Get Up and Ride, two concepts that will infuse the travels of young lovers with the essence of all things Brooklyn.
