ABOUT THE EASTSIDE FLEA
The Eastside Flea is a modern-day flea market hosting a wide-range of curated goods from vintage clothing and one of a kind collectibles to a diverse array of locally handmade goods, artisanal foods, plants, services and more! It’s a blend of swap meet, craft fair and summer festival that we’ve put our own spin on by adding food trucks, deejays, pool, pinball, artisan showrooms and events. Our home is the beloved Ellis Building, centrally located close to public transit hubs at 1024 Main Street. Built in 1907, this beautiful, charming heritage landmark is the perfect match for “The Flea” and all of the eclectic goods we see come through.
Our ultimate goal is to provide an accessible economic platform for local artists, makers, and collectors to test, build and grow their small businesses. We see ourselves not only as a fun weekend hangout spot but as small business incubators in a city where shop space and overhead make it almost impossible to open brick and mortar stores. Through this we also aim to promote sustainable shopping habits in our community, introducing the public to Vancouver’s makers and collectors and encouraging them to shop local, all the while having fun!
“ I try to never miss a flea! New vendors all the time, seasonally themed beverages, food trucks, great prices on vintage and a cozy welcoming atmosphere. My house is slowly turning into a collection of things found at the flea.” Karly P. (Patron)
“ This is my favourite place to go on the weekends. The vendors are always new and different. The atmosphere is great. I bring my dog and we hangout… eat doughnuts and buy art off locals from our community. I love you east side flea.” John A. (Patron)
“I can’t imagine a better place to call my second home, my creative true north, surrounded by an amazing, supportive community of fellow friends & weirdos slinging our goods.”
