  • Q:  What is the Austin Flea?

             A:  The Austin Flea manages and coordinates Austin-area pop up markets that showcase  local artists and vintage collectors.  We set up at various locations around town each weekend to share our wares with the community.  This is the full-time job/money maker for a large percentage of our vendors.


  • Q:  How long has the Austin Flea been around?​

            A:  We started hosting shows in the mid 2000's, but didn't have an official Austin Flea until 2009.  In the early days, we would have a couple of shows  per year.  Now we set up most Saturdays and Sundays around town at local bars, restaurants, breweries, coffeeshops and more  - weather permitting.
