Now that it's almost Spring, all the fun markets are going to start popping up around Vancouver like so many daisies. Farmers markets are the place to be on a sunny weekend morning if you're looking for fresh produce and there's even a market that's a modern-day answer to the old-school flea market! The Eastside Flea is a great hangout spot this Spring that you will definitely want to check out with your friends!
This isn't the kind of flea market you're expecting full of old junk— it's more like a hipster paradise with live vinyl, food trucks, pinball and plus the most unique shopping in Vancouver. This curated market focuses on ultra-local vendors. It's the best place to do some vintage shopping, pick up some new plants for your apartment and find unique handmade goods.
Whether you're looking for that Instagram-worthy monstera plant or a birthday present for your too-cool friend, you're bound to find exactly what you want at this market. Even if you're not shopping, it's just a fun place to hang out with friends since there are music and food! Plus, dog owners are encouraged to bring their furry best friends with them! What's not to love about this event?
The Eastside Flea Market runs every second weekend this Spring. The next market takes place Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 550 Malkin Avenue.
