Shop for vintage goodies in a modern environment at Eastside Flea in Vancouver. This flea market opens every other weekend. On Friday evening they host an event called ‘Shop N Bop’, where you can discover a small selection of cool items whilst enjoying a cocktail or craft beer, and of course, a dance with friends. Saturday and Sunday is when the 50+ vintage and antique vendors show up to sell their extensive selection of memorabilia, collectibles, homeware and retro fashion.
There are always new vendors showing up with a fresh collection of items for shoppers to take a look at. Eastside Flea receives nothing but shining reviews from happy customers. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting and there are plentiful food trucks selling wood-fired pizzas, falafel wraps and inventive gin infused cocktails. Vintage merchants are incredibly friendly and have a great selection of items on offer, such as knick knacks, collectibles, stylish homeware, retro fashion, kitsch oddities and antique curiosities.
Located in the Ellis Building, this market takes place within a true piece of Vancouver heritage – the structure was built in 1907, and is still as impressive and full of character as ever. Eastside Flea has entwined the old with the new spectacularly, and we absolutely love it.
Not only do they host their weekend events, they also host workshops and community events at the Ellis Building in collaboration with the East Van Arts and Culture Society. Their main goal is to encourage the surrounding community to shop local, sustainable and independent!
