Team Joe Dekalb Market Sundays

We just opened a new "store", more like a pop-up for a few years, in Downtown Brooklyn. The concept is a Market, called Dekalb Market. During the week, it provides some services that are lacking, like coffee, lunch places and fun shops. It has lots of shaded picnic tables, a DJ, an organic farm, a beer garden, and on weekends, also plenty of Flea Market stalls.

The "stores" are within repurposed shipping containers, outfitted by each business owner to reflect his/her style.

Joe's container sits sext to the entrance by the subway entrance off Willoughby. We'll be open for coffee business 7 days a week. Monday-Friday at 8AM and weekends at 9AM, serving the same delicious treats at the other 6 shops.

The important thing to note about Dekalb is that because of the proximity of the market to my apartment in Brooklyn Heights, we will be moving our Sunday runs from the Columbus Avenue store to Brooklyn! Yay!

Still 9:30 AM, 10 AM in the Fall. Drinks are still free, but please tip.

The route is a straight shot down Flatbush to Prospect Park, around and back..6.5 miles. It's uphill there, but thankfully what goes up must come down on the way back.

I hope to see some new faces there this and every Sunday!

Impressive store!! You should really check this out!

I was looking around your shop and I'm really impressed with the set up! You seem like you have a great business running! I noticed you were using an email auto-responder to build a list and market to your customers? That has been a
great way to increase sales for a long time, but haven't you heard of SMS marketing?

Imagine this, you display a VIP SMS CLUB on your website for your future customers and send out an email to your current customers about your NEW VIP CLUB. They text a code such as 'vipentry' to a shortcode such as '54545' and are
automatically subscribed to your SMS list.

Now say you send out a text message to your list with a 5% off your next order special offer. Your customers will receive
this message INSTANTLY to their cell phones! You can even put a 48 hour limit on the deal so you get lots of quick sales!

My name is Endro btw, I do some marketing stuff and I just saw something that could really help you out so I decided to
tell you about it, I'm not trying to sell you on a service or anything like that! I don't want to talk your head off so if SMS
marketing sounds cool to you, you can get more info at
Now, increase more sales with SMS marketing!
