The Funky Flea, a one-day, open air marketplace will debut June 4 at an open lot on the corner of Marcellus and Wyoming streets on the Near Westside.
Modeled after The Brooklyn Flea Market and Syracuse’s own Salt City Urban Art & Craft Market, organizers say this one of a kind event will be a little bit flea, a little bit crafts, and a dash of surprises. Rain or shine, the event will host more than 40 vendors offering retro collectibles, repurposed furniture, vintage goods, handmade crafts, artwork, records, thrift store finds, jewelry, and unique one-of-a-kind items.
There will also be delicious offerings from Flour City Pasta, Recess Coffee, Better Brittle, The Brooklyn Salsa Company, and Wine & Brine (both the Brooklyn Salsa and Wine & Brine source their fresh organic ingredients from upstate farms), and more from local promoter Small Potatoes. More than just merchandise, local musicians Kambuyu Marimba Ensemble, The Coogles and Utility Life will perform live.
The Funky Flea is free to attend but organizers suggest you bring cash to spend.
