DIRECTIONS + PARKING

Tyler Village (3615 Superior Ave.) is home of the Cleveland Flea during our outdoor season. Located 36 blocks directly east of Public Square, it's easy to find, no matter how you roll.

Like any urban event in any city, parking can be more stressful than abundant. We work with our neighbors to pluck as many spots possible for you. But our #1 recommendation: don't drive. At least not one-by-one. Tyler Village is easy to reach via bike and bus (RTA #1, 3 and 38 drop within one block). Carpooling with family, friends and neighbors is an awesome option. Consider Lyft, Uber or the ridesharing service of your choice too.


HOW TO GET HERE: Tyler Village is located on Superior Ave at East 36th Street, just five blocks east of I-90 exit 173C. Need turn-by-turn? Google Maps is our BFF. The address is Tyler Village is at 3615 Superior Ave.

 

WHERE TO PARK: Parking at Tyler Village is easy. We have a few lots open on-site (3615 Superior Ave) and spaces available a couple blocks away at Asian Town Center (3820 Superior Ave). Ample street parking is available along Superior and St. Clair Avenues, pretty much from Tyler Village almost to downtown. ADA-compliant handicap parking spaces and drop-off are available at the Tyler Village lot.

Note: Be respectful of all our neighbors. Do not park in the lot of a neighborhood business (open on Saturdays or not), particularly if it's clearly marked "PARKING FOR [OUR] CUSTOMERS ONLY." You can and will likely be towed. If you'd like to be a patron AND park, be a great customer and then ask if you can continue to park after you're done in the shop or restaurant. But be a great customer first. Cool? Cool.

FAQ

1. WHAT IS THE CLEVELAND FLEA?

The Cleveland Flea is a monthly urban treasure hunt that pulls in thousands of Northeast Ohioans to lesser-known neighborhoods in the city. It’s curated vintage meets culinary adventures on the road to the most talented artists and makers in the region. But it’s always been more than just a market. Founded in 2013 by Stephanie Sheldon (Indie Foundry), the Flea started as a way to support the makers, dreamers and creative small businesses that call Cleveland home, while giving shoppers an experience they couldn’t get anyplace else.

The Flea welcomes 160+ vendors and 20,000-30,000 shoppers each month to our Tyler Village home. We consider ourselves matchmakers, connecting Cleveland shoppers with the businesses they love, all in a dreamy and fun way.


2. WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO SHOP THE FLEA?

Totally depends on what kind of shopper you are! First, download the market map (PDF) and then check out this month's features on our blog, including:

3. WHO RUNS THE CLEVELAND FLEA?

Founded in 2013 by Stephanie Sheldon of Indie Foundry, the Cleveland Flea is run by a small (but so mighty) team of full-time awesome peeps who live, breathe and dream Flea. Sarah Wilt is our magical market manager. Emilie Hongosh and Emily Chumbler are interns turning creative processes into progress. Gina Kelly tells the story of the Flea, its shoppers, artists and makers. Heidi Rolf designs everything amazing you see. And Stephanie is at the helm, steering the ship toward brilliant tomorrows!

Team Flea organizes the event, vets vendors, recruits shoppers, procures permits and licenses, hires security, removes trash, rents furniture, builds stuff, plays the music, listens to your feedback, markets the market, encourages partnerships and aims to pair shoppers with their new favorite businesses in a fun and dreamy way.

4. WHERE DO I PARK?

Stop. Put yourself in reverse. And back up to the Directions + Parking section above. You flew right past it!


5. WHAT IF I CAN'T FIND A SPOT TO PARK?

Best advice: don't freak out, go home and look wistfully at other people's Instagram. Take a deep breath and turn onto Superior Avenue toward downtown Cleveland. There's street parking for most of the 36 blocks between Tyler Village and Public Square. Will you have to park 36 blocks away? No. Will you have to parallel park? Probably. We can't guarantee anything, but we're willing to bet you'll nab a spot within 5-7 blocks. Stink at parallel parking? Bike, bus, carpool or start practicing now!


6. DO VENDORS ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?

Many Cleveland Flea vendors do accept credit cards, but not all do. Plus: the Flea Bar is CASH ONLY. Need an ATM? Here's a map of all area ATMs (or check with your specific bank).


7. HOW CAN I BECOME A VENDOR AT THE FLEA?

7. MAY I BRING MY DOG TO THE FLEA?

We love dogs. We absolutely welcome well-behaved dogs at the Flea. We just ask that you keep your furry BFF on a leash!
