Sep 21 2018, 4:53 am

The Eastside Flea will be having its grand reopening at a new location in the False Creek Flats this weekend.

According to a release, its new home for the fall and winter season is at the Eastside Studios located at 550 Malkin Avenue, featuring 20,000-sq-ft of transformed warehouse and artist studio spaces for over 50 vendors, new attractions, and activities. It is billed as a new, inclusive cultural hub for local LGBTQ, indigenous, and female and non-binary artists.

“The Eastside Flea was the first place I ever sold Dickie’s,” said Stephen Tufts, owner of Dickie’s Ginger Beer.

“They were immediately so supportive of what I was doing, as they are with so many other people in this city. Vancouver is a better place with them in it and it’s exciting to see their vision get bigger and bigger. The new space is a great addition to the local community.”

This season’s first event is from 7 pm to late on Friday, September 21 and 11 am to 5 pm on Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23. Expect food trucks, DJs, and flash tattoos this opening weekend.

The Eastside Flea returns to this venue every other weekend through the end of November and then the first three weekends of December.
