UK-based developer Urban Space‘s first permanent American installation is a market in Downtown Brooklyn, featuring 22 repurposed shipping containers, transformed into market stalls for various retailers and vendors. Dekalb Market opened at the weekend and will remain open year-round, with food vendors, retail stores, artists, craft stalls and a record store among the mix. A vegetable garden, kitchen and classroom will provide areas for learning and discovery.
