Odd Market, LA's newest weekly indie bazaar that's decidedly more shade-friendly than its much-missed outdoor predecessor, is finally making its debut this weekend. Located just outside of Downtown at the historic Odd Fellow Temple building now known as Casa Vertigo, the inaugural marketplace will open its doors this Sunday, September 21.
Taking place from 12pm to 7pm, the "Unique LA-meets-Old Hollywood" show features over 80 local vendors peddling handmade clothing, accessories, jewelry, home decor, artisanal foods and more. Expect to find basics from do-gooder brand Povertees, clothing from designer Miguel Torres, upcycled furniture from Against the Grain Wood, edgy jewelry by Detroit Trash, global accoutrements from stones, glass + bones, stationery from Two Hermanas and many other LA-based creators. To keep shoppers fueled, food trucks like the Grilled Cheese Truck, Currywurst, Roadhouse Rotisserie and others will also be serving up mid-spree grub, while local music makers will provide live entertainment all day.
Into it? General admission is $5 and VIP tickets are $15 (preferred parking, express entry and free gift included); get them here.
