The Flea is an urban treasure hunt not to be missed, with rows of vintage and upcycled merch from local makers and vendors, like this Polaroid cactus and succulent planter from Photosynthesis.

Meet the makers of handmade jewelry and more, with different local designers at every market. They are more than happy to share their stories and talk about their goods.
There's plenty of #pvdlove to go around from small businesses and social ventures who are proud to wear their city on their sleeve — and their tees and hats, too. Check out goods from Our City, Our World, designed for human stories, not for corporate slogans.

Treat that spring cold with a natural remedy whipped up by a local, and stock up on handcrafted apothecary items, handmade soaps and hand-poured candles.
Shop for vintage finds among the racks of men's and women's carefully curated, pre-loved and upcycled clothing and accessories, like these vintage polos and flannels from Smiths Studios.
And every market offers a changing lineup of food trucks and indoor food vendors, serving up hot and iced artisan coffee drinks, locally baked goods, barbecue sandwiches, burgers, tacos, and this cheesesteak with fries from Red's Street Kitchen.
Set your clocks ahead and make sure to rise on time for the first Spring Pop-Up Market on March 10. See upcoming highlights of each Flea at providenceflea.com, and on Instagram and Facebook @providenceflea.
