YES! Los Feliz Flea is back on track!
Back in April, we were supposed to kick off the new Los Feliz Flea and as many of you know we were delayed month after month. Thanks to some new leadership at the district level of LAUSD and the continued support of Marshall HS itself, we are excited to announce we are opening on Saturday, November 2nd. This new flea will feature a curated selection of vintage and collectibles along with local artists. In true Odd Market fashion, we will have a great line up of live music and food trucks.
The Los Feliz Flea will kick off Saturday, November 2nd and will run every Saturday rain or shine from the hours of 11am – 4pm. Vendors are required to submit a separate application regardless of whether have were approved to do Odd Markets.
In 1991, I was the guy that started the Fairfax High Flea Market (currently the home of the Melrose Trading Post). Since then, I have always been on the lookout for the 2.0 East Side version of that market. For those of you New Yorkers, you may know the GreenFlea located on 77th and Columbus in NYC. Man, that was my weekend hang for many years. It’s the reason I loved the corner of Melrose and Fairfax. I thought it would be the West Coast version
The GreenFlea had a very unique setup. It has the parking lot and playground which is outdoors and then it has an attached indoors area with antique jewelry and collectibles. Guess what? So does Marshall HS. To start off we will just be using the outside areas but the plan is to do something similar. It’s a homage to my all-time favorite NY Flea that got me started almost 30 years ago.
We will be updating everyone as we get closer to the kick-off date. For details, check out losfelizflea.com
Until next time, thanks for the support.
