Each weekend a group of creatives gathers to sell vintage clothing, collectables, handmade crafts, and one-of-a-kind goods at the BMore Flea Market.
The vintage and craft market, which began outside of Penn Station in 2013, focuses on small and creative curators, artists and crafters in Baltimore.
Held every Saturday — weather permitting — at Broadway Market in Fells Point, the Bmore Flea Market offers a number food choices and vendors who sell everything from vintage clothing and handcrafted jewelry to artwork, home goods, and so much more.
They also hold a pop-up market one Sunday per month at a local brewery, with that event centering on everything vintage, paired with several food trucks and local beer.
“We simply wanted a market that made people say ‘Oh, you gotta check that market out,’” says founder and organizer Patrick Horvat.
Each week vendors come from all over the Mid-Atlantic region to share more than their goods, but also their passions. And vendors change every week so attendees never know exactly what they will find.
“There are some criteria for [vendors] joining us,” says Horvat. “We’re not a yard sale type of market so we tend to focus on vendors that take what they do seriously, curate what they have, and look at it as a serious craft, whether they do it full or part time. Also, none of our vendors have a $485 million yacht from e-commerce sales. So, we truly appreciate everyone that helps support small local businesses, even if it’s just stopping by to look around.”
Among those small businesses is Washington D.C.-based shop Souk and Soul, a recurring vendor at the market, which specializes in handmade goods and crystals.
“Baltimore and BMore Flea always has a fun community vibe, and the opportunity has helped grow my business in reaching a wider community outside of the DC area,” says Souk and Soul owner Felicia Fridie.
BMore Flea Market tries to feature something for everyone, especially those that love finding unique items that you can’t typically find in a store.
“Our strength has always been our diversity of local vendors and products,” Horvat says. [Expect to find] “Something unique and amazing that you didn’t realize you couldn’t live without.”
