LA Flea Market: Grand Opening at Dodger Stadium

LA Flea Marketing Rendering

As we wrote about last May, the LA Flea Market will debut this weekend, on Sunday, July 18 in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, and will take place every third Sunday of the month when there’s not a home Dodger game.

This Sunday is the grand opening and will feature radio personality Rick Dees, who will be holding a Hollywood Yard Sale to benefit the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center. He will be auctioning off celebrity items, one auction at 10:00 am and another at 1:00 pm. Throughout the day, you can expect approximately 400 vendors including live bands, food trucks, and sellers with items like vintage goods, antiques and collectibles, sustainable goods, and other new merchandise.

The LA Times published on Tuesday an interview with organizer Phillip Dane, some notable mentions from the interview include:

  • Food and music: The goal is to have a more upscale version of the Rose Bowl Flea Market by offering some extra amenities to the mix. “Bands aren’t just meant to be background music. Our food court will be unsurpassed with 18 of the most tweeted gourmet food trucks,” he told the LA Times. Committed food truck participants include: Ahn-Joo, Cool Haus, Fishlips, Slice Truck, The Munchie Machine, Mandoline Grill, India Jones, Border Grill, Tropical Shave Ice, Del’s Lemonade, Canter’s Deli, Fresh Fries, Willoughby Road, Komodo, Dosa Truck, Crepe’n Around, Gourmet Genie. See below for the band schedule.
  • Arts and crafts will have a presence: “Quite a few vendors came to us through Etsy. They will have a team block of eight spaces with 22 members.”
  • Homeboy Industries will staff the event: “I put together an application for Homeboys on our website, and we had 50 applications in one day. All I did was ask for their name, phone number and for them to tell us about themselves. Some of the stories were so moving. People wrote, ‘I’ve been out of prison but no one will hire me because I have a record or too many tattoos.’ We went down there last Wednesday for interviews and it was fantastic. These are men and women who really want to work. We are going to hire around 40 people to start. They’ll be trained in the logistics of the event, handle parking, directions and greeting the vendors when they arrive early in the morning. I’m also donating booth space to them so they can exhibit their artworks. There will be a whole Homeboy section where they can sell their merchandise and help keep Homeboy going.”

General Information:

  • Dealers will start arriving at 5:30 am, early bird and VIP guests at 7:00 am, and the general public at 9:00 am. Closing time is 5:00 pm
  • VIP admission is $25.00 (for access to VIP area, restrooms, valet parking, and carrying service).
  • Dealer’s admission is $15.00, early bird admission $10.00, and general admission is $5.00. Kids under 12 are free. No pets allowed.

Residents have expressed concerns about the flea market at the Stadium, most notably concerns about the increase in traffic around the surrounding streets. The Stadium, in efforts to “minimize any impact on our neighbors,” will be directing traffic only through the gate at Stadium Way/Elysian Park Avenue and the Downtown Gate.

One reader commented on our post a while back, saying, “I know everyone has a different response to the prospect of this flea market–personally, I’m not too psyched. If it proves to be a hassle in any way, I’ll probably just start taking day trips on Sunday to somewhere peaceful.”

Will you be going to the flea market this Sunday?
