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!

Samantha Stidham – Marketing Coordinator & Social Media Strategist Touring musician, spelling bee champion, linguist, photographer, former vegetarian. Sam will try anything once, and that’s exactly how she jumped into her role at the Flea. If she’s not climbing a ladder or snapping photos of Flea finds, she’s probably trying to fit her upright bass into her VW Beetle.
