Shop Safe. Shop The Flea.


You have the right to shop safe as you shop the Flea. As of June 2, 2021, Ohio Governor DeWine has issued guidance for the lifting of Ohio’s mask mandate and most other coronavirus-related state orders. As an essential retail operation, this allows us to host the Youngstown Flea in our new home of 365 E. Boardman Street, Youngstown, 44503. Our #1 priority remains the safety of our team members, partners, vendors, guests and the entire community. We know that we can #ShopSafe while #SupportingSmall. We are excited to be open and we will ensure the proper following of all recommended safety precautions by team members and vendors. We will continue to exercise applicable cleaning and sanitation procedures throughout the market and recommend social distancing.
