Brooklyn Flea, the popular New York City flea market series, is expanding to Philadelphia. The first event will be held on June 2 at the Piazza in Northern Liberties.

Cofounded by Jonathan Butler, the flea market is not Butler’s first venture into our city. He also runs Brownstoner, a Brooklyn real estate blog, that had an eight-month stint in Philly. Butler shut Philly Brownstowner down because it wasn’t profitable like the original one in Brooklyn.

Is Brooklyn Flea just a flea market? Well, in some ways, yes, but like other efforts for the creative class, it’s something about the community and constituency around it.
