Shop for vintage goodies in a modern setting at Vancouver's Eastside Flea. This flea market is open every other weekend. On Friday nights, they host an event called "Shop N Bop" where you can browse a small selection of cool items while enjoying a cocktail or craft beer and, of course, dancing with friends. Saturday and Sunday is when the 50+ vintage and antique vendors show up to sell their extensive selection of memorabilia, collectibles, housewares and retro fashion.
There are always new vendors with a fresh collection of items for shoppers to check out. Eastside Flea gets nothing but glowing reviews from happy customers. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, and there are plenty of food trucks selling wood-fired pizzas, falafel wraps, and inventive gin-infused cocktails. The vintage vendors are incredibly friendly and offer a wide variety of items, including knickknacks, collectibles, stylish homewares, retro fashions, kitschy oddities and antique curiosities.
After two years in the Ellis Building - a true piece of Vancouver heritage built in 1907 - the Eastside Flea moved just a block away in the fall of 2018 to the brand new Eastside Studios, a 20,000-square-foot arts and culture space. This transition means room for more vendors than ever before, gallery space, a parking lot for summer markets, food trucks, social events, and the same community vibes that have made Eastside Flea a renowned Vancouver event.
In addition to their weekend events, they also host workshops and community events at Eastside Studios 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!
