The Portland Flea was born in 2011 out of a love for interior design, vintage and craft. After living next to a bustling vintage market in London, Portland native Kate Sullivan was inspired to create a central marketplace for local vintage purveyors in her home town. Over the course of four years, the market on third Sundays at UNION/PINE grew to host the best vintage curators in town.
In 2014 the Portland Flea partnered with Rejuvenation on a second market called Sunday Emporium which focused on locally-crafted home goods.
In April, 2016 Portland Flea + Food became our core market, held once a month at the intersection of SE 6th & Salmon, between Rejuvenation and Jacobsen Salt Co. This market combines our ever-growing vintage community and local makers + a very exciting addition: A food pavilion curated by Bunk Sandwiches.
Portland Flea + Food is held on last Sundays of the month. Dates for 2017 coming soon!
