This post is a quick shout out to City Flea held in Washington Park in Over the Rhine. I’m a huge fan of City Flea and this Saturday, October 10th, is the last Saturday of the summer season. City Flea opens at 10am and closes at 4pm. Honestly, I’ve been remiss for not mentioning it before! City Flea is a large, urban flea market with local vendors selling everything from clothes to crafts, home decor to jewerly, soap to skin products, locally made sweets to specialty snacks, and much more. If you prefer vintage, it’s there. If you like modern and new, you can probably find it.
Another reason to check-out City Flea is the food trucks! These never disappoint. Show up hungry and you can find sweet treats, savory meals, coffee, tea, and beer; there’s usually live music or a DJ, too. Then, there’s the added bonus of the location; the flea market is held in beautiful Washington Park with Music Hall as the backdrop. There are benches by the fountains if you need a break, tables to sit and eat, and the park for kids to play.
If you can’t make it this Saturday, there are two winter dates: November 29th from Noon to 6pm at 21c museum hotel and December 12th from 5pm to 10pm at Washington Park. Either way, plan to check at City Flea next summer! Held once a month on Saturdays, City Flea has grown exponentially since it first started in 2011.
I suggest going early, if you can, to grab a parking spot in the garage underneath Washington Park. Otherwise, you can look for street parking in the area. Bring change for the meters. Although many of the vendors at City Flea do take charge cards, having cash on hand is always helpful. If you have a favorite thing to shop for at City Flea, I’d love to hear about it! Please share!
GO THERE (City Flea)! TRY THAT (Freeset bags, Homemade Cake in a Jar, Food trucks)!
