"Black Market Flea is an exciting cultural experience that puts Black creatives on a platform, allowing them to share their talents and passions with the community."
Black Market Flea emerged as a showcase of black culture and has become much more.
This outdoor market has brought a sense of togetherness to the Los Angeles community. A place where Black creatives can share their talents and where people of all cultures can support rather than take from its community.
One market goer said, "the environment was radiating with positive energy. This is something we have been needing. A safe place where we can come together and share as a community. A place where the people shine bright"
The market featured over 180 vendors ranging from art to fashion to food. The audience featured a rotating crowd of hundreds of market-goers from 10 am to 6 pm. When the sun began to drop the music and dancing began to take over. This radiating energy that was felt all day made its way to the people's feet as people started to vibe out to the music.
One thing that stood out was the creativity. Not only from the vendors but from the attendees. Fashion was in the air. Vibrant colors and bold fashion statements were being made at every glance.
