FLATBUSH -

The new Flatbush Caton Market held its grand opening this weekend, hosting vendors from all over the world. 

The popular Caribbean shopping center reopened on Clarendon Road after the city decided to redevelop it's former site. 

James Johnson-Piett, the market's managing principal, says the market has been around for more than 20 years, but has "always been a place for new Caribbean and other immigrants throughout Brooklyn to come in and get their bearings in New York." 

According to a published report, the market will reopen at its original location at Flatbush and Caton avenues when construction is complete on a 14-story, 225-unit building.
