The Dekalb Market is opening on the old site of the Albee Square Mall and will have stores made out of salvaged shipping containers boasting a variety of pop-up shops in a town square like setting. A joint venture of Urban Space and Youngwoo & Associates, this new community destination will be open seven days a week and is located at the intersection of Flatbush and Willoughby in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Bodega is proud to not only have a vendor space at the market but also operation of the beer garden “The Cooler” that will be open on weekends. This Saturday (7/23) and Sunday (7/24), the Bodega will be hosting the Opening Weekend Celebration with crowd-pleasers DJ Spinna (6-9PM Sat) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (6-9PM Sun) who will be performing at this free admission event…

Bringing together new and old partners, Brooklyn Bodega presents the return of the Fat Beats record store (who closed their seminal Hip-Hop Manhattan location in 2010). In collaboration with Fat Beats owner Joseph Abajian, Brooklyn Bodega is opening “Bbeats” this Saturday (7/23), which will specialize in new and rare Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul and Jazz vinyl, domestic and international CD’s and other merchandise including limited edition apparel, books, and magazines.

Awesome news… the return of Fat Beats! Best of luck to Bbeats. – BBG
