Ahead of Hypebeast Flea New York on May 18 and 19, Hypebeast is spotlighting each of the event’s more than 30 vendors by giving an overview of their practice, their inspirations, and what they plan to bring to the event. Hypebeast Flea New York is free to attend — RSVP HERE


Parkmart is an artist and design-focused flea market founded by friends Nico, Seth, Brooks and Nurse that’s at the center of Bushwick, Brooklyn’s DIY culture. Around 70 vendors assemble each month, joined by a lineup of live DJs throughout the day. Although all are welcome to table on a first-come, first-serve basis, the curation of vendors is underlined by a single rule: everything sold has to be an original creation. No vintage allowed, unless it’s been heavily customized. At Hypebeast Flea, Parkmart is bringing the best of the best: the most notable pieces from their most popular vendors.

Explain your brand to people who may not know you yet.

Established during the summer of 2021, Parkmart is a New York City events-based collective born out of the ongoing pandemic restrictions that left a lack of resources for emerging artists and brands outside of the online space. What was planned as a one time pop-up market at Maria Hernandez Park snowballed into a series of monthly, community-based artist flea markets in various public parks around the city, followed by an after-party series, Darkmart, which also was conceived during a transitional period within NYC nightlife.

In 2022, a year after our initial run in public parks, we shifted to warehouse venues, focusing on large scale events; establishing Parkmart as the premiere artist market in the city for up-and-coming DIY/independent brands, artists, organizations and publishers to sell their ideas.

What about New York inspires you the most?

Public Parks … and Times Square.

What have you got planned at Hypebeast Flea?

We curated a selection of past Parkmart vendors to create a 1/1 unique object using “Walmart” as a loose prompt.

What other vendors are you looking forward to checking out at Hypebeast Flea?

F*ck em all! Sike — we’re gonna have to wait and see what the other vendors cooked up.
