Here at River Market, we have always welcomed the curious. Above our Hungry Floor on the first level we have the Curious Floor, where you can try a circus class, record a CD, take in a temporary art exhibit or rent desk space by the hour.
This weekend, things will get even more interesting around here, when Curious Flea kicks off.
From 10 am to 5 pm this Saturday & Sunday, River Market will welcome the carefully curated, mid-century modern, antique, and collectible wares of more than 20 vendors. Although some will be bringing upcycled items — crafted from vintage and recycled parts — the flea will not feature anything new. Curious Flea is not a craft fair; it’s focused on treasures from the past. Vendors include Brick & Mortar Living, Vintage Pop, Robyn’s Vintage Nest, My English Country Garden, Your Ottoman Empire, PAVA Creations and more.
Highlights of Curious Flea include live music and the Battle of the Curious: a match-up of unusual items that everyone is invited to take part in. Have something jaw-droppingly weird tucked away in the back of a closet? Bring it to the flea on Saturday, June 1. The most curious object will be immortalized forever in the Curious Hall of Fame, and the winner will receive $100 to spend at the flea market.
Finally, of course, there’s the food. At no other flea market can shoppers take a break from browsing to enjoy award-winning restaurants alongside a spectacular riverside view. We’ll see you here.
