One of Vancouver’s most unique shopping markets has found a new, permanent location inside the once-decrepit Ellis Building located near Main & Terminal in East Vancouver. The Eastside Flea is a “modern day flea market” that has taken place across the city at various venues (including the Wise Hall), events (including the Food Truck Festival), and universities (including UBC).

The market is inspired by the Brooklyn flea market culture and brings a diverse mixture of vendors into one location. Past markets have had local vendors hawking vintage clothing, crystal jewelry, delicious smelling candles, animal skulls, collectibles, leather goods, and artisan food.

After roving the city in various locations, the Eastside Flea has finally settled itself down at Main & Terminal (fairly close to its much bigger brother, the Vancouver Flea Market). And after a huge renovation, the location is finally ready to open with a highly-anticipated grand opening event this weekend to celebrate.
