Fans of the Central Flea have several reasons to celebrate. First, the Central Flea will run weekly this season, starting on May 6.
Second, the flea is moving to a bigger space. “In just one year we outgrew ourselves,” a Facebook post for the event says in reference to last year’s location, 95 Prospect St. The Central Flea will now run out of 41 Sidney Street, according to the event.
Third, Lamplighter Brewing Co. is holding a Beer Garden at the flea.
The Central Flea debuted last year after the Central Square Business Association (CSBA) got the suggestion to hold arts events in the city’s parking lots. The event ran monthly from June to October.
The first flea market will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 6. Check the Facebook event for updates on vendors, food trucks, and bands.
