Mixed-use Downtown Brooklyn megaproject Citypoint recently announced a plan to tide eager shoppers over until the debut of the project's first phase: a shipping container mall. Today Eater has some more intel on what will actually be inside Dekalb Market. There will four categories of vendors?makers, artists, farmers, and chefs?as well as an "incubator farm" run by local farmers and meant to be educational for the community. The mall's official site also announces a contest, with the rent and construction budget for one container going to whoever can imagine the best reuse for it. Meanwhile, competitor the Brooklyn Flea is prepping for its Williamsburg expansion next month, Brownstoner reports. With all this going on, we might totally forget about Citypoint.
