THE YOUNGSTOWN FLEA.

We are an, exciting, well curated “Market For Makers” hosted once per month in the heart of Downtown Youngstown, Oh. We reside at 110 Freeman Alley (downtown, next to the Covelli Centre). The market is dedicated to local & regional vendors of the arts/artists, antique and repurposed furniture, vintage clothing, and collectibles, jewelry, candles, reclaimed metals/wood, apparel, food/drink, farmers & produce etc. We hand select the best vendors in town to ensure each of them have a true passion for making a vibrant community of professionals/peers and investing in the economic growth of the Youngstown community.

 

New 2017 dates: April 22 / May 20 / June 17 / July 15 / August 19 / September 16 / October 14

 

We certainly can’t and don’t want to do this alone. We set out with a mission to build a platform for small businesses to thrive in an ecosystem of creativity and innovation. We strive daily to think of one more way to introduce a makers community to a local community. We’re not just another event. We are an EXPERIENCE. We are not a FLEA MARKET. We are a FLEA. And you don’t just stop by the Flea. You Flea! You EAT. SHOP. REPEAT. You come for the Yoga and leave with your hands full of #FleaFinds. It’s about the music and the movement. Food trucks by the fleet and a pet-friendly environment that welcomes those with two legs and four. We Flea because we know it’s what literally gives legs and legitimacy to dreams. It’s a flea for all. Come Flea! Want to get involved? Shoot us an email at info@youngstownflea.com or visit our Volunteer page.
