The City Flea, July Edition!

Everyone will be ‘fleeing’ (pun intended!) to Washington Park this Saturday, July 13th from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. to join in the contagious energy that springs from Cincinnati’s original curated, urban flea market. The City Flea  is hosting its monthly market celebration this weekend and is inviting anyone and everyone!

This project began June 4th, 2011 and immediately left people wanting more! Their first summer season was declared a success due to the 70 + vendors sold, and since then, in the third season of operation, the Flea is home to about 170 creative, unique vendors.

There is no admission free, but they do ask that you bring a smile 🙂

Expect everything from food to ceramics to clothing and MUCH more! Spend your Saturday exploring the unique and talented vendors at Washington Park!

The City Flea site encourages people all around town, to “bring your friends, bring a few bucks, and most importantly, just bring it.”

Fountain Square’s Indie Flea Market

This summer, Fountain Square has quite the lineup for us Cincinnatians to enjoy. One event in particular really stuck out for me (because it involves shopping!): An Indie flea market.

A couple weeks ago, Cincy Chic promoted an Indie vendor event at Kenwood Towne Centre and it was VERY popular. Sounds like Fountain Square is building on that concept, and adding in some great independent rock bands to provide a soundtrack to the shopping! They’re partnering with the MidPoint Music Festival to get the bands, so you know they’ll be good!

So, if this sounds like your idea of fun, head to Fountain Square on June 17.  The Indie craft market will be open from 5pm- 10pm that night. The crafts will all be handmade and unique, made by local artisans (Etsy-style arts and crafts). Fountain Square is still taking vendors too, if anyone is interested in displaying your work. It sounds like a great way to get your name out there, but be sure to apply by the June 3 deadline!
