Red Hook Ball Fields Latino Food

  • 4

Hi,

I've been trying to find how to get to the Red Hook Latino street vendors. I know this might be the last summer they are there so I want to make sure I experience them. I keep getting articles ABOUT them and just pointing to the ball fields. Is there an address (even something close by) that I can just enter into www.hopstop.com and get there from Manhattan?

Any help is appreciated, thank you!

    Obviously they are not yet open for the season

    1. You can find a few of them at the Brooklyn Flea in DUMBO on weekends, although I think this weekend is the last of the flea in DUMBO before it moves back to Fort Greene

        When do they open? And why is it possibly the last year?

          Last summer, the soccer fields were zilch. There was nothing but a few vendors out on the road. I did however get to experience the vendors the year *before* that and thank god because yes, its amazing. I feel lucky that I got in on the action when there were talks of the vendors possibly being no more.

          Apparently a 6 year contract- woohoo! Give yourself the entire day. And plan to wait on very long lines for food. Its worth it though.
