Bringing the Caribbean to Brooklyn
The bustling neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn has been home to the Flatbush Caton Market for over 20 years, serving up world-class Caribbean and global-themed goods. NYCEDC partnered with the City and a coalition of community organizations to transform the site into Flatbush Central, a mixed-use development that will retain and improve the market, while supporting the long-term growth of dozens of local vendor businesses.
A New Chapter for Flatbush
Flatbush Central will feature:
- Flatbush Central Caribbean Marketplace, an expanded and renovated vendor market
- An incubator space containing a shared commercial kitchen, natural beauty product lab, and flexible classroom space for business trainings and workshops
- New office and classroom space for the Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CACCI)
- 10,000 square feet of commercial retail space
