After a winter break, the District Flea will be back on Saturday, April 5 for its first full outdoor season in Washington. That means every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during April through October, the open-air market in Shaw will host more than 100 vendors selling furniture, crafts, vintage clothing, jewelry and food. It's going to be a Saturday staple.
And new vendors to look forward to include Richmond's antique and furniture hunters the Odd Couple and Baltimore's mod Lucky Seven Vintage. Want in? The market is still accepting applications for vendors.
And for snacking while shopping, the Flea has some cool new options. This time around, food vendors include District Doughnut, Asian-inspired fare from Baba's Cooking School, s'mores from RareSweets, and street-food booth from José Andrés and the Think Food Group. Washingtonians will also get to check out organic ice-cream from Brooklyn's Blue Marble. As for brews, the District Flea's press release says that a revolving menu of locally-crafted beers will be available as well.
