Farmers markets are coming out of hibernation all over the city, and so is the Brooklyn Indie Market — a fashionista’s farmer’s market, if you will — which opens on Saturday.

The fourth annual Indie Market will include booths manned by 20 Brooklyn artists every Saturday and Sunday under a red and white circus tent on Smith Street in Carroll Gardens.

Kathy Malone, who founded the market, attracts experienced designers from all over our stylish borough, hawking silkscreen lingerie, handmade jewelry, soaps, and housewares.

“Every year we have our anchor regular vendors, but we get a whole new crop of designers to keep the market fresh,” Malone said.

Most of the vendors are up-and-comers, so who knows, you might get your hands on the next name to land in Barneys or Anthropologie at bargain prices. New items this year include eco-friendly notebooks, two self-published magazines, and bib necklaces made of vintage flea market finds by designer Liria.

And for cupcake fanatics, the Columbia Street-based bakery, Nine Cakes, will be hawking what are easily the best mini-treats in the borough.

“These cupcakes are to die for,” Malone said.

Brooklyn Indie Market [Smith Street at Union Street in Carroll Gardens, (718) 499-3105] will be open Saturdays and Sundays through Christmas.
