On the market

In addition to the usual suspects, markets are popping up all over Brooklyn this winter, in time for the holiday shopping season (and it's even easier to stay on top of them, thanks to blogs like this one).

Here's a look at some temporary newcomers coming up, and some new favorites:

SCORE! Pop-up Swap

A massive swap exchange, you can exchange your goods for those of others, and in the process find gifts for your family and friends. It's all about sustainability, and charity, as all remaining goods will be donated, and proceeds from the door and sales of the Score! / Hasselhoff totebags support City Harvest. Swap categories include clothing and accessories, music, art supplies, books, DVDs and media, housewares and miscellany.
