The Providence Flea is holding its 11th Annual Holiday Markets starting Thanksgiving weekend with the first Night Market on Black Friday, Nov. 24 and following up on Sunday, Nov. 26, with markets every Friday night from 5:30–9:30 p.m. and every Sunday from 11 a.m.–3 p.m., through Dec. 17.
Each market features a different lineup of 80+ local vendors — with more than 250 vendors participating in all — and thousands of small-batch, locally sourced and handcrafted items throughout the month! You'll find artists, artisans, makers, vintage vendors, bakeshops, plants and florals, and more at each market.
Held indoors at the bright and spacious Farm Fresh RI Market Hall at 10 Sims Ave. in Providence, admission is always free with free off-street parking available in two lots. Warm up with locally roasted hot coffee, handcrafted holiday spirits or craft beer as you hunt for the perfect gift. Sip, shop and nosh from food trucks outdoors and purveyors indoors and take a break at the indoor seating area in the South Hall.
Here's a sneak peek at some of our market highlights:
If you love vintage holiday décor, you'll love our lineup of vintage vendors at the Holiday Markets. From ceramic trees and collectibles, like this hand-glazed ceramic tree from 360 Salvage Sisters, to vintage sleds, collectible Santas and elves, vintage bottle brush trees, ornaments and more, you'll find it here. With different vendors at every market, it's "catch as catch can," or mark your calendar so you don't miss a single one.
From our extensive lineup of artists — graphic designers, fine artists and photographers — you'll find three hallways full of art and expression to give or send, or keep for yourself for the holidays. Find original designs on posters, canvas, clothing and more, such as these mini stocking cards, a fan favorite from Cards by Cecilia.
Who doesn't love a little sparkle for the holidays? You'll find a style for everyone on your glam list with must-have hand-crafted and vintage collections from at least a dozen jewelry vendors at each market. These stunning cast-silver forest pendants from Figs and Ginger will charm the holiday stockings off that special person.
You'll find local artisans, crafters and indie makers with the most irresistible creations, making for endless gift-giving options and nostalgic home decor. And, they're new and different at every market. Explore a world of upcycled creations, including this holiday wreath made from salvaged vintage from Second Street Designs RI.
Great for stocking stuffers and spiffing up the powder room, handcrafted soaps, scrubs and apothecary gifts are a staple for the holidays, and we've got lots of choices. Check out these festive soap bars and scrubs from Birch Beauty, made with organic oils and butters. Browse through their gift packs and candles, too!
We'll have hundreds of gifts in every artist's medium available, including ceramic, stained glass, canvas, photography and wood, like these laser-engraved cutting boards and charcuterie boards from RJF Customs. You'll find lots of variety and many vendors will take custom engraving requests, as well. Inquire with individual vendors to get your order in on time.
Baby, it's cold outside! Stay warm and cozy with these upcycled wool sweater mittens from Fox in the Attic. We'll also feature handmade knitwear and crocheted items such as hats, infinity scarves, plushies, blankets, fingerless gloves and more at every market.
The only thing you might not find at the Holiday Markets is time — enough time to see and explore all of the festive, fun and affordable gifts being offered. What we will have are options, and lots of them, like these handmade, framed holiday trees with found beach glass and starfish from Land and Sea Glass.
Don't forget the family's furry friends. Check out all of the adorable merch worthy of everyone's best friend, like this reversible bandana from Two Spotted Pups, perfect for keeping your pooch stylish and Insta-ready this season.
We're decking the market halls with so much local love this season, we hope you'll join us. Head to providenceflea.com or @providenceflea on social media for more information on featured vendors, indoor happenings and festivities. Happy holidays, shop local first, and we'll see you at the Flea!
