The Brooklyn Night Bazaar, which started off as a four-night food, shopping and music festival at Dekalb Market two years ago, is about to take up permanent residence at a warehouse in Greenpoint. After a successful five-weekend run in Williamsburg last year, founder Aaron Broudo is moving the night market into a 24,000 square foot former bakery, where he plans to be open every Friday and Saturday night. In the plans he presented to Community Board 1 last week, Broudo says he'll have around 20 food vendors there nightly. That list is still mostly undecided, but some past regulars like Roberta's, Pok Pok, Luke's Lobster, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream and Cafe Grumpy are all definitely on board. And while there won't be room for the indoor soccer field and 20 ping pong tables of last year's Night Bazaar, Broudo did promise mini golf, rock climbing, table tennis, pétanque, and Chinese tea ceremonies among other regular attractions.
Broudo has leased the entire building, and plans to sublet to a few food producers and distributors, so when the night market festivities aren't raging the warehouse will still function as a commercial bakery.
