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.
After two years at the Ellis Building – a true piece of Vancouver heritage built in 1907 – Eastside Flea has moved in Fall 2018 just a block away at the brand spanking new Eastside Studios, a 20,000 square feet arts & 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 made Eastside Flea a renown event in Vancouver.
Not only do they host their weekend events, they also host workshops and community events at the 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!
