The Eastside Flea
The Eastside Flea is a modern day flea market that occurs every other weekend in Vancouver, BC. Each event hosts over 50 local vendors selling diverse goods from handmade independent maker wares to vintage clothing, collectibles, plants, artisan food & more! You’ll also find food trucks, music, pinball, outdoor courtyard, and other fun things to check out!
Our home is the beloved Ellis Building located at 1024 Main St.
Featuring artist studios upstairs the market takes place on the building's mezzanine, main level, warehouse & attached outdoor courtyard. Utilizing the quirkiness of the space several 'clerk rooms' have been turned into shops to check out along with the market vendors! The Ellis Building is a true piece of Vancouver heritage built in 1907 and still as beautiful and full of character as ever!
In addition to the markets we host workshops & community events at this space under the East Van Arts & Culture Society. Our main initiative is to encourage our surrounding community to shop local, shop sustainable, and shop independent, supporting the local economy and helping small businesses grow, all the while having a good time!
We hope to see you at the Flea soon!

Our goal is to provide a fun, unique, organized, and inclusive vendor experience. But don't just take our word for it, here's what a few of our vendors have to say about the Flea!

Vend0r since Nov. 2016
"When I first started participating in markets I had recently moved to Vancouver. At the ESF I found an exceptionally welcoming and inclusive community. I have made countless connections that have allowed me to flourish and it has been a great platform for my growing business. I always have a great time, so much love."
Leigh Burrows // @RemixdVintage
Vendor since the very beginning
"I have been selling vintage clothing at the Eastside Flea since their very first market over five years ago. ESF is more than a fun and trendy place to sell, they've become like my family. Their regularly occuring markets give vendors the opportunity to create a regular income, and to create their own clientele, while staying on top of ever changing alternative fashion trends."

"My first experience at the ESF was ideal. As soon as you sign up you're sent a series of emails that tell you everything you need to know to about your display, load in, and ESF policies to make sure you're totally ready for the market. The staff are warm and welcoming, and walk around throughout the day to make sure everyone is happy, comfortable, and set up for success. There's a real special community at the ESF, and I can't wait to vend with them again."
East Vancouver Arts & Culture Society
The East Vancouver Arts & Culture Society is a newly formed sister organization to the Eastside Flea. It is a non-profit based out of the Ellis Building dedicated to supporting Vancouver's arts and culture community.
