Get ready for the mother of all uptown markets: the brand new Harlem Flea.
Kicking off this Sunday, March 10 from 11am to 8pm, the colorful bazaar will be taking over the 2,800-square-foot basement at the Harlem Parish, the stunning former neo-Gothic church at 258 West 118th Street. More than 30 indie vendors will be selling fashion, accessories, beauty, home goods, crafts–even experiences.
Conceived by Sade Akin Boyewa El, who ran the recent Harlem Pop-Up Collective, and Sivan Baron, co-owner of Harlem's Silvana, Shrine and Yatenga, the flea's mission is to support local creatives while building community.
Expect a heap of things to see and do. Shop for vintage finds from Lady V, hats from Armed & Dangerous, and natural skin care from Seul Luxe, then fill up on Mediterranean bites (and wine) from Silvana and sign up for a chess class, a spiritual reading or a portrait. Basically, you whole Sunday afternoon's covered.
