The Melrose Trading Post is a weekly antiques, art and collectibles market held once a week in the parking lot at Fairfax High School – the Melrose Trading Post Flea Market is a fundraiser for Fairfax High School.
Gathering between 3,000 to 4,000 attendees on a weekly basis, the Melrose Trading Post features nearly 200 eclectic vendors to check out. Admission is $3 which is not bad at all compared to the $8 visitors have to pay at Rose Bowl. Plus, the Melrose Trading Post flea market happens on a weekly basis instead of once a month.
This flea market has a well-edited selection of vintage clothing, records, furniture, plants, jewelry, random knick knacks and quirky antique treasures that can get expensive. But if you dig deep enough you can find some great stuff and good prices.
The Melrose Trading Post is consistently listed as a top Los Angeles destination stop by numerous tourist websites and featured in publications and media all over the world.
