To Market :

The Brooklyn Flea :: Opening Weekend
The outdoor Fort Greene market is back every Saturday, through November. And the Flea at One Hanson moves to Sundays only starting this weekend, (No DUMBO/Brooklyn Bridge market this year.) we're excited to check out a bunch of new vendors and lots of yummy food, as always.

The Greenpoint Food Market will be having its Spring Awakening event. Expect a showing of artisanal, Brooklyn-made provisions--including jams from Anarchy in a Jar and Bacon Marmalade--as well as live music. Church of Messiah, 129 Russell St. (between Nassau and Driggs aves.), Brooklyn

Restaurant Openings:

A new neighborhood spot is soon to open in williamsburg, wittily called "traif," it is a celebration of all things bacon and shellfish. Rumors are it will open this weekend. Traif, 229 S. 4th St., nr. Havermeyer St.; 347-844-9578.

Next week, Dos Caminos will be opening in the meatpacking district (taking over the old Vento space). The menu is a bit different from the other locations, Executive chef Ivy Stark is using a barbecue pit to slow-roast meats over mesquite and applewood. Check out the full menu here
Dos Caminos Meatpacking District, 675 Hudson St., nr. 14th St.; 212-699-2400
