My Sunday Visit to Dekalb Market

This past Sunday was sooooooo beautiful, I couldn’t stand to be in the house. I didn’t really have anywhere to go so I decided I would walk 2 bridges; I would cross either the Manhattan or Brooklyn Birdge into the city and cross whichever one I didn’t walk the first time or the Williamsburg Bridge back into Brooklyn. On my way through Downtown Brooklyn, I passed the Dekalb Market. I’d read about it and heard people talk about it but had never been. I decided to walk around for a bit.

Dekalb Market
138 Willoughby Street
at Flatbush Extension
Brooklyn, New York

The food from all of the vendors seemed great and there’s a lot of variety (think… the heavist soul food possible to specialty yogurt) but and I wasn’t looking to eat anything too heavy since I had only really began my journey for the day. I decided to order a taco from the Oaxaca stand.

For more, look below…

I stopped eating meat for the month of April and just haven’t picked it back up yet. At some point I’ll indulge in the greasiest chicken thigh ever fried but because I’m still trying to hold off on the meat, I ordered the Potato Poblano, a soft taco with potato, poblano peppers, pickeled onions, cilantro, avovado, lime, and salsa verde. That was probably the best soft taco I’ve ever had (not to be confused with the best hard shell taco I’ve ever had) and the first one that didn’t have meat or fish in it. Now that I know Oaxaca has good food, I can check out their 2 locations in Brooklyn or Manhattan.

I wish I’d picked up a card or something from the guys in the shipping container I got the Blueberry Mint Lemonade from . It was so pretty and just sweet enough. Below are a few more pics from the market.

If you haven’t already been to the market, pick a warm day to walk through. You can find out more about the market at
