The Artists and Fleas market boasts an expansive creative community full of makers, designers, curators, and much more. The market opened in 2003 as a much smaller “show-and-sell” setup with around 35 artists. Over the next 6 years, they grew in popularity and expanded to 60 artists every week.

The goal of this unique marketplace is to maintain the human interaction and self-expression that comes with art- and flea markets. You’ll feel like you fit right in as part of the Los Angeles art scene while you browse the expansive number of creators.
