This past Saturday was AMAZING. INCREDIBLE. SO-MUCH-FUN! Know why? Once a month from April through September starting at 9:00am the city of Cleveland is ALIVE with a fabulous bustling! The Cleveland Flea wakes up the city (quite literally) and gets us into the CLE groove starting bright and early! A local street food festival, handmade goods/clothes/collectibles shopping experience all in Cleveland, Ohio!
Bragging Rights: The Cleveland Flea was JUST named 1 of 7 Flea Markets NOT to miss in 2015 by Country Living Magazine!
Starting off the Flea properly (aka with caffeine), I got a coffee at Nathan’s Coffee Roasting. Check out the photo above – He brews each cup individually out of a brewing contraption that he made out of repurposed wood. It’s caffeine perfection.
Luckily we had a super sunny day in Cleveland… we took a shadow selfie with my coffee!
Drum roll, please! Next to the vendors! Here is just a taste of what I got to experience at the Cleveland Flea! All local artists. Can’t beat that!
Food trucks graced the Cle Flea, but I was MUCH more interested in the clothing trucks! From The Wandering Wardrobe to our our Cleveland themed Fresh Brewed Tees, CLE knows how to keep us in style!
No brainer: Before leaving the Flea OF COURSE I am going to stop by the Team Sawyer booth to get some of nationally recognized chef Jonathon Sawyer‘s yummy treats! You probably recognize him from The Greenhouse Tavern, Noodle Kids and Trentina. Or perhaps you are obsessed with his AMAZING homemade, aged vinegar from Tavern Vinegar Co. Oh and he was also JUST on The Chew and was an Iron Chef! The “walking taco” featured at the Cleveland Flea was beyond. <insert drooling> A bowl of “taco” with Sawyer’s homemade “frito” style chips and more! We also took home some of Chef Sawyer’s handmade pasta! duh.
I already can.not.wait for the next Flea in May (May 9th, to be exact!) It will be JUST as fabulous and fun…and I am so excited to get back to support local artists and find some amazing new items to add to my decor and wardrobe!
