We Angelenos welcome New York transplants with open arms—as long as they involve either gourmet ice cream or artisanal, handcrafted goodies. These criteria make the Arts District debut of Brooklyn-born craft market Artists & Fleas a no-brainer. Every third weekend of the month, stroll along Mateo St (between 6th and 7th Sts) for an outdoor weekend event, featuring locally made art, fashion, vintage wares, vinyl, edibles and beyond. Mingle amongst LA's hippest while eyeing hand-beaded jewelry or one-of-a-kind reclaimed wood work. Plus, there's a "feed lot" each weekend that features five LA-based food trucks; past participants include Coolhaus, Currywurst and Komodo. Admission is free. Want to get in on the vending action? LA artists, designers, vintage collectors and food truckers can contact Artists & Fleas here for more info on how to participate.
