“Factory Floor provides a new opportunity to elevate Brooklyn as a worldwide epicenter of design and boutique manufacturing,” said Carlo Scissura, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, in a statement. “Our goal is to remove the bottleneck that exists between design-savvy local consumers and the tremendous cache of indigenous talent creating their products in Brooklyn and city-wide.”
Makers Market will run through Sunday, October 27. Moving forward, the venue will feature rotating markets to support the creative makers movement in the Kings County borough, and help establish a unique presence in Industry City.
