Flea Market Meets Hand-Made Craft Show and Street Carnival

Organizers call it vibrant urban marketplace with things to buy and lots to do

What do you think when you think of a flea market? Probably a sea of tables loaded with cast offs. Neighborhood Flea promises something different: things to buy, yes, but also lots of things to do.

"Cast offs" in this market are vintage finds.

It's the sixth season for the market at 26th and Railroad Streets in Pittsburgh's Strip District, just east of downtown. Neighborhood Flea happens each second Sunday of the month from May through October from 10 a.m-3 p.m. In addition to vendor tables, organizers say they'll have a carnival theme going with musical performers, buskers, hands-on workshops, and artist demonstrations. There will be vintage items ( think HGTV's Flea Market Flip ) and handmade goods and edibles, collections, flowers, service providers, and of course food, with some of the city's best food trucks serving their specialties.

No one leaves hungry at this flea market!

Neighborhood Flea is organized by the people behind I Made It! Market , Pittsburgh's moving indie artist market, whose leaders describe themselves as people who love "transforming spaces throughout Pittsburgh into lively marketplaces where community is built and regional sellers thrive."

Here are the dates (all Sundays) for Neighborhood Flea:

  • May 12
  • June 9
  • July 14
  • August 11
  • September 8
  • October 13

This flea market features everything hand made and hand crafted.
