On the second Saturday of the month, from April through October, you can find us at one of my most favorite venues on the planet – The Cleveland Flea.

“Part urban treasure hunt

Part culinary adventure

Part maker center”

The Flea is a day of people watching, treasure hunting, Food Truck binging and enjoying the unique, slightly quirky flavor of Cleveland.

First of all, if you didn’t know the flea was happening, you would never just stumble upon it. Tucked into a parking lot between several warehouses and factories off of Superior and East 36th Street in Cleveland’s Asia Town, The Flea isn’t visible from the street. But the hundreds of people you see walking towards it from off-site parking is a dead giveaway. To the untrained eye, you’d ask yourself where the heck are all these people going on a Saturday afternoon. If you’d allow yourself to follow your curiosity and see where they were heading, you’d discover a true gem.

or slightly odd items you’d love to buy for that certain someone in your life.

We’re there with our full selection of honey, soap and yarn.

But if I’m being honest here, I’m really in it for the food.

I mean, who wouldn’t love a “mobile mini donut mini kitchen” Or the Pieorgi Lady. Or Cleveland Kraut. Or  a cevapi sandwich from Taste of Europa. Or …. I could go on and on. Let’s just say you won’t go hungry at The Flea.

These people didn’t!

If you want to experience true Cleveland, put The Flea on your calendar

You will enjoy each and every moment of it.

And come see us. We’ll be in booth 40, right in the heart of all the action.

Hope to see you May 14th.
