If you’re
spending this Summer in the Los Angeles area and are in need of a
fun, unique experience, we have a solution — flea markets! Not only
do flea markets offer vintage, one-of-a-kind clothing that probably
no one else will have (hello, individuality complex), they’re also
a great way to connect with and support your local community while
buying second-hand items and helping reduce waste! In L.A., there
are tons of flea markets to visit and explore, but we’ve narrowed
down a list of the essential spots to hit!

 

1. Odd Market: Los Feliz
Flea

Free to the
public, Los Feliz Flea is hosted by John Marshall High School every
Saturday from 11AM to 5PM. The flea market has a vast range of
vendors, including vintage clothing and collectible stands,
original and handmade artwork, as well as delicious food trucks for
some pre- or post-shopping fuel.

 

2. Artists and Fleas:
Venice

Another free
event, Artists and Fleas can be found right at the end of Abbot
Kinney on the lot of the Westminster Avenue Elementary School. This
flea market hosts over 50 vendors, selling just about anything you
need. From antique furniture, homemade jewelry or candles, and
stylish vintage clothing, you’ll be able to find it all here!

 

3. 88 Trade (Mid
City)

A new mini
flea market is emerging on the scene; 88 Trade. 88 Trade stands out
from the other flea markets listed given their unique vendors and
offerings. Not only do they have vendors of vintage and handmade
clothing, they also have flash tattoos, tooth gems, and piercings!
Their next event is happening Sunday, July 10th, so make sure to
check out their Instagram (@88trade) and website for all the latest event info!

 

4. Melrose Trading Post
(Fairfax)

Hailed as
“L.A.’s favorite flea market”, Melrose
Trading Post is an absolute must-visit. The flea market is held
every Sunday in the lot of Fairfax High School on Melrose Avenue
and is one of the largest in Los Angeles. There is a $5 entry fee
at the door used to support the students of Fairfax High. At MTP,
you can find all sorts of goodies, ranging from homemade skincare,
fragrances, and candles, to unique vintage clothing, photography,
furniture, and other collectibles. Local food vendors also set up
shop in the lot’s courtyard, allowing you to enjoy your food
alongside local artists who perform live music throughout the
day.   

 

So, next time
you have some free time on your hands and can’t figure out what to
do, come back to this list and make sure to check out all these
unique spots!
