A Path to Our Present!


Hey #FleaFamily. We are super pumped to present #FleaOnPhelps, a special edition, outdoor night Market, happening on Fri., Dec. 1st, from 4P-8P, right on the city’s newest pedestrian path along Phelps Street, downtown Youngstown. It’s paired with the city’s amazing, annual Tree lighting. We’ve got some specific details to share about it, so please click the plus (+) sign and read the FAQ’s below in their entirety.



Great question! The name says it all – on Phelps Street. On Fri., Dec. 1st, from 4P-8P, we are doing a unique “pop-up” special edition of The Flea, right on the city’s newest pedestrian pathway – Phelps Street, downtown Youngstown. Please note: Seperate from the #FleaOnPhelps pop-up, we are utilizing our own, Bldg. space, located at 365 E. Boardman Street, 44503, to host Holiday Flea on Dec. 2nd + 3rd. For more info on Holiday Flea, visit


Space is limited. It could be VERY cold (yes, even with our outdoor heating attempts). COVID-19 is still lingering and we take the health of our community very seriously. Everyone’s safety is of our utmost concern. So at any moment We, The Flea, the CDC, Ohio State, and/or local health guidelines could change/alter, postpone or cancel Holiday Flea. Any applicable refunds would be given. Please make sure you understand this fully, as you weigh and consider applying to our Markets.

Let us all pray that everything works in our favor and that we can humbly provide this community with an amazing experience as they safely #ShopTheFlea. This Flea On Phelps will be like no other. It is exciting, but it is complicated. There will be no city parade. No tree lighting (happening during this date/timeframe). No assurances, only what we can control. That comes down to how we respond, in and to, this moment. We can make this amazing! We can smile through it all. We can come together as #FleaFamily, rally around our community of Makers, shoppers and supporters and do what we can, with what we have. To whom much is given, much is required. Tis’ the season. Let’s go!!!!
