One of Toronto’s most popular curated markets, the Leslieville Flea was founded in 2013 by Brigid Elmy and Christine Roberts as a place for local artisans and collectors to showcase and sell their wares. The Flea started in the parking lot of the Duke Tavern and now fills up Ashbridge Estate, Distillery District and several other locations with the best Vintage & Handcrafted vendors in the city.
The Leslieville Flea hosts an average of over 1,000 attendees, with vendors selling vintage finds, furniture, clothing, collectibles and antiques plus a wide variety of artisan jewellery, art, and handcrafted goods.
Each Leslieville Flea is an opportunity to meet the maker of the item and find out how it is made, or talk to the treasure hunters who look far and wide to bring each unique item and its special history to the market.
The Leslieville Flea is recognized as a vibrant community hub where friends and neighbours meet, grab a drink or bite to eat and support local, independent vendors. Markets are held in several locations throughout the year.
