CHATTER (JUNE 2017): It’s flea (market) season

June 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Flea markets are coming to two of the area’s most historical neighbourhoods. The Kensington Market Flea Market will launch June 25 and run every last Sunday of the month from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until October 29.

“I’m a part of the Kensington community and I always thought a flea market would be a good addition, and Kensington has got a flea market feel to it already,” said organizer Brock Sheppard.

The flea market, which coincides with Pedestrian Sundays, will offer a diverse array of goods in keeping with the market’s multicultural flavour. Shoppers can expect repurposed and handmade artisanal items like accessories and wooden carvings. There will also be a variety of foods and an ice cream maker serving coconut-based ice cream. Vendor spots are still available; contact kensingtonflea@gmail.com for further information.

Running the last Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 252 Dupont St. is the Madame Boeuf Flea Market. Organizer Desiree Kotnala envisions the market as a place to “engage with the neighbourhood and have a place where the neighbourhood can pass by and get fresh baked goods, cups of coffee and have a really great afternoon.” The market will run until October.
