Cleveland Flea Expands to Shaker Heights Through October

The Cleveland Flea at Tyler Village is only offering two more events this year, but look for the market to expand to one other east side location this September and October as well.

The Van Aken District in Shaker Heights is the spot selected for the new Cleveland Flea events, meaning there are four final outdoor events this season. During the winter months, the Cleveland Flea heads indoors before opening up again outside in April.

Unlike other flea markets, which often require a person to sift through piles of garbage to find something worthwhile, the Cleveland Flea is a much more currated event, featuring many local makers and shop owners. At both locations you can expect plenty of Cleveland-themed merchandise and overpriced vintage furniture, along with incredible artwork, jewelry and craft booths on display.

The new east side flea runs Sept. 16 and Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the Tyler Village flea running Sept. 8 and Oct. 13. See the whole schedule right here.
