I LOVE LOVE LOVE hunting for treasures. Flea markets & farmers markets have quick become my favorite places to visit on the weekends due to their super low-key, earthy, peaceful vibes. I’ve been frequenting the Brentwood Farmers Market forever but just went to the downtown LA Arts District Flea Market for the first time and was so impressed that I couldn’t help but share!
The Arts District Flea Market is as artsy-crazy as the Arts District itself. The market is hosted inside a warehouse in DTLA, and stepping foot inside is like stepping foot into vintage wonderland. If you’re looking for an impossible-to-find antique fridge, typewriter, sewing machine, table, lamp….. ETC! this is your place.
There’s also a whole mess of eclectic art, jewelry, clothing, and home decor! Prices are a little higher than an average flea market, but considering the quality of the gems you find here, I’d say it’s well worth it!
Even if you’re not looking to buy anything, the Arts District Flea Market is a ton of fun to stop by and walk around! There’s music, a super fun crowd, and occasionally there are games to play too! (Check out the vintage arcade basketball set below!). When you’re done at the market, go have dinner at one of the many eateries in the Industrial / Arts Districts of DTLA.
The market is open 11AM – 7PM every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Happy treasure hunting!!
