New York has the Brooklyn Flea, LA has the Rose Bowl, and now Miami has its very own culture-injected, local vendor's market: The Miami Flea! On Sunday, The Arts & Entertainment District, an up-and-coming urban neighborhood sandwiched between Wynwood and Downtown Miami, hosted its second flea, with over 50 local vendors, live music, food, plenty of pets, and more.
There were vintage and antique finds from shops like Ace Props, Hustle Rose Vintage, and Aleissa's Collections; locally made skincare products from Island Girl Co. and Bodhi's Garden Delights; and just overall cool stuff from local boutiques and small brands like Nurbana 305 and Heist Jewelry. Yelp curated the food and there were plenty of cocktails and beer to go around. The only thing you needed to come prepared with was an oversized blanket and some friends to kick back, listen to plenty of live local acts, and just watch the day go by.
Are these images giving you major pangs of FOMO? No worries, because the next Miami Flea will be taking place some time in December! We'll update you when they've nailed down a date.
