We Angelenos welcome New York transplants with open armsas 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. And more than other flea market on in Los Angeles, the Downtown Los Angeles edition of Artists and Fleas is very much a manifestation of its neighborhood, specifically the booming Arts District. Every third weekend of the month, stroll along Mateo St (between 6th and 7th Sts) from 11am to 5pm, 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 from 75+ vendors. Plus, there's a "feed lot" each weekend that features five LA-based food trucks; past participants include Coolhaus, Currywurst and Komodo.

Artists & Fleas brings super trendy cute vendors both in DTLA and Venice. I've been to both and my pic below is from the DTLA one. It was a beautiful day with the warm SoCal weather on a weekend; and what better way to enjoy it, then do a little shopping or just enjoy looking at the interesting and fun things the vendors were selling. They also give out free Artists & Fleas tote bags for the first few people who enter, while supplies last. So you go and get yourself a tote bag, then check out the vendors and maybe even buy something fun! Enjoy! #TOTastemaker
