Adventures in Eras in the Arts District April 15

As we gather for our last market in DTLA’s Arts District off of 3rd and Traction, we wanted to let you know – this is just the start to a new Artists & Fleas adventure! Stay tuned and watch your inbox, because soon we'll be sending out the details for our new location! In the meantime, many of our long-time favorites and some fresh new faces will join us one last time at the Farmers Market this weekend.

If you're into Pin-up art and fashion, Naty B will be bringing you the best #TBT your wardrobe could ever ask for. Her dresses are structured after a 1950s silhouette, leaving the body with a cinched waist and a fluffed skirt. These fun and flirty dresses have a bust-line fold that provides the right amount class & sass all while being covered in your favorite fruits and flowers. From period inspired garments to jaw dropping jewelry pieces, Naty B has the "VaVa" for your "Voom".

Beautiful Things-LA will also be pulling up this Saturday in the Arts District. Their truck is full of SoCal-inspired modern day goodies that are great for every occasion & setting. From home décor to clothing, they have all the right accessories to scratch that fashion itch. It's the perfect place to drop in and check out if you're attending weekend 2 of Coachella. Beautiful bags, scarves, blankets, and pillows that will turn Coachella Camping into Coachella GLAMping. 

There are a lot more vendors attending this Saturday, so come down and join the festivities! We look forward to seeing everyone, and don't forget to grab a free Artists & Fleas tote bag to rep around town! 

Blue Skies and Good Vibes in Venice

LA’s infamous sunny weather is finally starting to heat back up and we’re getting nothing but blue skies and good vibes.

Last Saturday in Venice was beautiful, with temperatures hitting 80 degrees (and we're just a stroll away from the beach!). The pre-summer weather brought out a lot of our favorite faces and a bunch of new ones. 

Arlo, a great brand with amazing ready-to-wear garments for any type of style,  joined us on Saturday with a festive booth that caught the eyes of many. Cute bombers, crop tops, and chiffon blouses – you name it they've got it! They also had the cutest bikini bottom ceramic pots, which they launched at our market. The bikini pots work perfectly for small cacti, air plants, pocket change, and/or desk appliances. If you’re starting to stock up for your summer wardrobe and bulk up that beach vibe, Arlo was definitely the booth to visit.

With all the summer preparation going on, you can't forget about accessories – it's all about the details! Shop 851 was with us last week with new jewelry that's a perfect for the California sunshine. Gold necklaces that accentuate the neckline, giving just enough glamour with its simplistic detailing; earrings to match that perfect little bikini you've been dying to grace the beach with – Shop 851 always brings the hottest pieces to our markets, and we love seeing them every time!

What's New in LA! Saturday March 11

Getting ready for the weekend? Here's who we are looking forward to meeting in Venice this Saturday:

What better way to capture a moment than with a vintage-style tin type photo? Max Li Tintype Photo Booth will be set up taking portraits all day. 

We're ready to deck ourselves out in Conrad Men's goods and go hiking. Also make sure to check out their meditation cushions!

At Artists & Eats, We're Better Together (It Takes Two)!

In the spirit of the Maker Culture that inspires our business and community, we embrace entrepreneurs of all types and disciplines at our markets – which is why we’re dedicating seven weekends in January, February and March to featuring the most innovative food entrepreneurs in NYC. 

It Takes Two to tango – especially when it comes to the latest and greatest food trends. Because chocolate wouldn’t be the same without peanut butter, or bacon without eggs, or cheese without crackers... you get the picture. This category brings the best of the best together for some all-star collabs that are sure to delight, in addition to crowd favorite combo treats (peanut butter cups FTW). Here's a sample of who'll be joining us this weekend:

Going Global the BK Way With A Taste of Home

Some of us can’t jet home for the weekend, so we find other ways to capture what it feels like to be with our families. Taste of Home will take you on a culinary journey around the country and the world to taste the traditions brought by entrepreneurs from all over. Check out a sampling of who'll be joining us for Taste of Home this upcoming weekend below!
