The Eastside Flea is a fresh, modern flea market that takes place regularly all year round in Vancouver, BC. We hope to curate a one stop shop for locally made goodies and carefully selected vintage. Each event hosts over 50 local vendors selling diverse goods from handmade independent maker wares to vintage clothing, collectibles, plants, artisan food & more! You’ll also find food trucks, live vinyl deejays, pinball, outdoor courtyard, and other fun things to check out!
The Eastside Flea is relocating to Eastside Studios at 550 Malkin Ave. this September! Eastside Studios is East Van’s newest arts & culture hub and will be able to accommodate more vendors, food trucks, live music, art shows, workshops, speaker series, outdoor patio parties, and MORE! We’re so excited for this next chapter, catch us at our opening weekend September 21-23 at 550 Malkin Ave.
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.”
