In addition attracting major retailers left and right, Downtown is also a hot spot for showcasing local talent. As if the Historic Core's Sunday flea market experience wasn't enough, DTLA's Arts District has scored its own weekly shopping bazaar, notes DT Rising blogger Brigham Yen.
Perfectly situated within a block from healthy eatery Urth Caffé, the Arts District Flea will take place every Friday through Sunday from 10am to 6pm each week, offering up to 60 vendors hawking clothing, accessories, art, home decor, vintage treasures, artisanal foods and much more at the 15,000-square-foot space, Yen reports. Some are even calling the new indoor marketplace LA's own version of NYC's Brooklyn Flea—with Studio City's new Night Market and the SFV's own outpost of the Melrose Trading Post, perhaps the Big Apple-based folks behind the indie shopping hit Hester Street Fair will be convinced to return to LA?
