Does your ideal Vancouver Saturday include a lazy stroll, people watching, bargain hunting and curiosity browsing? If that sounds about right, head over to Wise Hall (1882 Adanac St.) in East Van for the launch of the Eastside Flea summer market series. The first Eastside summer flea market kicks off Saturday, June 8 from 10am to 4pm. The rest of the Eastside Flea summer market events take place Saturday, July 13 and Saturday, August 17.

From farmers markets to craft fairs, Granville Island Public Market, the Vancouver Chinatown Night Market and the warehouse Vancouver Flea Market, Vancouver has many weekend market shopping options. The Eastside Flea is a different breed. It most reminds me of NYC’s popular Brooklyn Flea Market–a fresh mash-up of old and new, locally-made goods plus food. And an undeniably cool crowd of shoppers.

The Eastside Flea is a carefully-curated market that aims to show off Vancouver community. You’ll find a mix of vintage housewares and clothes alongside antiques, artisan products and edibles made by Vancouverites. Admission is by donation with a suggested donation rate of $1. That’s a few bucks cheaper than your average craft fair.

This Saturday, standout Eastside Flea vendors include RISH jewelry, Big Starr Vintage, Retro Specks sunglasses, and Window Arcades Terrarium Design.

See you there!

The Eastside Flea takes place 10am to 4pm June 8, July 13, and August 17 in Wise Hall (1882 Adanac Street).

    Are there any fall events. If yes, what are the dates, how can I rent a table and at what cost? Sounds like an awesome opportunity to sell my treasures. :)
