A New Flea in Town
Today’s inaugural Denver Flea is part market, part party and all Colorado. Celebrating the locally owned and locally grown, this hip take on the traditional flea market will set up in City Park with an array of Denver merchants selling vintage and handmade goods alongside food trucks, outdoor games and plenty of hometown beers and coffee.
“We love craft beer, we like the outdoors, we respect and appreciate well-made things, and I think a lot of us gravitate toward items that are made locally and are high-quality,” says Denver Flea’s Kate Miller. With more than seventy vendors participating — Vaux Vintage, the Real Dill and Wynkoop Brewing among them — visitors are free to imbibe and browse while enjoying live music or a game of cornhole. As an added twist, Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare will offer shaving services for gentlemen and a “braid bar” for on-site hair braiding.
The Denver Flea goes down today from 2 to 8 p.m. at City Park. Admission is free; 10 percent of vendor proceeds will benefit the Mile High Business Alliance. For more information, including a list of participating merchants and sponsors, visit denverflea.com.
