Artists & Fleas returns to Chelsea Market in Manhattan on April 1st, 2014 for a permanent residence inside Chelsea Market to create a market within a market 7 days a week.
Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market is a brand new experience in alternative retail – a curated marketplace of designers, artists and vintage dealers. Part designer showcase, part maker’s market, this pop-up will host over 30 independent creators and sellers of jewelry, art, design, home accessories, vintage clothing, and all things indie, funky, Brooklyn and bespoke from both Artists & Fleas’ 10+ years in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and the larger creative community. In addition, the market will play host to an eclectic mix of weekly programming led by independent designers and artists open to the public. (Interested vendors should click here for more info and an application.)
During market weeks, Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market is open from 10AM-9PM Monday through Saturday and 10AM-8PM on Sundays and is located at 75 Ninth Avenue / 88 Tenth Avenue.
