This weekly weekend market is many things to many people. It’s an indie fashion and vintage bazaar, a hipster hang-out and fixture in the Williamsburg neighborhood, and a home to the thriving community of countless designers, creators, vintage collectors and foodie enthusiasts that have passed through since 2003. Established in a warehouse on a then-neglected part of North 6th Street in 2003, Artists & Fleas has been a constant in a changing neighborhood – a community for those who love to sell and a destination for those who love to shop. Open every weekend, year-round.
Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market is a rotating pop-up shop held throughout the year at Chelsea Market that brings together a curated collection of independent designers, emerging artists and vintage collectors from the Artists & Fleas family over time to the heart of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District. Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market is where old world bazaar meets new world chic, where globe-trotting Romany culture meets the best of boho Brooklyn. Part designer showcase, part maker’s market, the market will host over 30 independent creators, makers and designers of art, jewelry, 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 across New York City.
Artists & Fleas at Chelsea Market is open daily beginning April 1st from 10AM-9PM Monday through Saturday and 10AM-8PM on Sunday and is located on the corner of West 15th Street and 10th Avenue with access to the street, the High Line and the main Chelsea Market concourse.
