First established in 2003 by Amy Abrams and Ronen Glimer in a former warehouse on North 6th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, as a weekend market to bring together the creative and the curious, Artists & Fleas has become a vital destination for the community of artists, designers, vintage collectors and makers eager to set up shop and connect with their audience locally and beyond.
Home to more than 100 individual sellers every weekend, Artists & Fleas has cultivated an international reputation amongst buyers, trend-spotters and creative entrepreneurs as a place to showcase and discover what's new and exciting in fashion, vintage, art, design and more. Items sold at Artists & Fleas range from arts & crafts to antiques, new and vintage home furnishings, bicycle parts, books, food, clothes and accessories.
Artists & Fleas is nowadays a weekly market in Williamsburg, a daily market inside Chelsea Market and a monthly market in Downtown LA (Arts District and Venice). It is a place where buyers find unique designs, and where artists and vintage collectors come to their market in an atmosphere that’s in the tradition of old world marketplaces with a firm foot in what is contemporary, original and hip.
Artists & Fleas moved to North 7th Street in the Fall of 2010, expanding and evolving in sync with a neighborhood that exploded over the past decade. The market is situated just a few blocks from the shops, bars and restaurants of bustling Bedford Ave. and steps from the Williamsburg waterfront, which hosts Smorgasburg, a food market on Saturdays through November.

I was expecting to pop in for 2 or 3 minutes on my way back from Smorgasburg, but there were actually a number of pretty cool vendors in here. Everything from candles to kitchen aprons to very unique clothing, toys, and clever bags. If you’re in the hood for Smorgasburg, totally worth dropping in for 5 minutes or however long you end up staying… 🙂

A lot of weird, home-made, pretty stuff! Very clean and good, loads of stands. Not cheap, but you can make some great buys.

Sensational spot for hand-made trinkets and jewellery. Air-conditioned, quirky and right next to Smorgasburg. It’s a definite stop-in.
