THANK YOU, CLEVELAND!
Food Flea is finished for the year, but look for us again in 2018!
1. WHAT IS FOOD FLEA?
Food Flea is a monthly urban brunch market June-September that pulls in thousands of Northeast Ohioans to lesser-known neighborhoods in the city. It’s a culinary adventure for foodie fans of The Cleveland Flea... but it’s more than just a market. Founded in 2013 by Stephanie Sheldon (Indie Foundry), The Cleveland 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.
Food Flea welcomes 40+ food 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 FOOD FLEA?

3. WHO RUNS FOOD FLEA?
Founded in 2013 by Stephanie Sheldon of Indie Foundry, Food Flea is a product of The Cleveland Flea, which is run by a small (but so mighty) team of full-time awesome peeps who live, breathe and dream Flea. Laura Drapac is our magical market manager and event coordinator. Elizabeth Flanagan is head of event logistics. Heidi Rolf and Maggie Ress design 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.
