Brooklyn Flea Philly market manager Mark Vevle is remaining mum on the reason behind the Brooklyn Flea Philly's demise, but he promises a new flea will rise from its ashes. That is, his own flea market, Franklin Flea, a winter-themed flea market setting up camp next month in a yet-to-be-confirmed Center City location. "Franklin Flea will be similar in spirit to [Brooklyn Flea Philly]," says Vevle. "The fun thing is that it will be helmed by a Philly resident (me!), given a new Philly-like name, and possibly be in a fun new Center City location."
Vintage apparel, antique and upcycled furniture, collectibles, handmade sundries, and food are all on the docket for the market, which kicks off Saturday, November 16, and will repeat every Saturday, from 10am to 5pm, through December 21. Vevle tells us he plans to confirm the location (probably the old Strawbridge's on Market Street) within the next week, so check back here for updates, or keep reloading Franklin Flea's Facebook page and website.
