The Dekalb Market is closing after just over a year – three and a half years prior to the promise made by Urban Space, a NYC developer that organizes specialty markets. All of the vendors with whom I spoke were not happy about the situation since they had all made large out-of-pocket investments to equip their storage container kiosks.
