BROOKLYN — Brooklyn Flea and food market Smorgasburg are ready to face spring with their outdoor season kicking off the weekend of April 5 and 6.

The Brooklyn bazaar's seventh outdoor season will see a few changes, including a relaunched Park Slope market at P.S. 321, which will feature free children's programming and 10 new food vendors.

Organizations that will provide family fun include 826NYC, Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, Construction Kids and Mark Morris Dance Center.

The Saturday Flea market, which takes place 176 Lafayette Ave. in Fort Greene, will have a "streamlined booth layout, a more cohesive food section, and lots of fresh vendor faces," according to a statement. Sunday's market will be moving to a new location, which has not yet been announced.

Smorgasburg will remain in Williamsburg's East River State Park on Saturdays, while taking place at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sundays. According to a statement, Saturday's market will feature 100 vendors, its highest number ever, while Sunday's will feature more than 80. SmorgasBar will be returning to the Saturday market on April 12, and a bar area will also be featured on Sundays sometime in April or May.

A Crown Heights beer hall, Berg'n, will also launch at 899 Bergen St. with permanent booths for market vendors Asia Dog, Mighty Quinn's BBQ, Pizza Moto and Ramen Berger. There will also be a beer list courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery's Garrett Oliver, along with ice cream from Blue Marble.
