Rochester, N.Y. — Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) – The Lucky Flea Market opened for the first time Sunday in Rochester.
Over 60 vendors set up on the corner of Anderson Avenue and Carlton Street. The vendors range from vintage clothing, art, home décor, jewelry and other goods. There are also food trucks with coffee, baked goods, brunch, snacks and more.
It’s sponsored by Lucky Strike Company, a vintage clothing store in Rochester.
The coordinators want to encourage people to shop sustainably and support local businesses affected by the pandemic.
“Over quarantine, we were a little sick of being inside. So once stuff started to ease up a bit, we were a little excited to start planning an event for all these makers and vintage curators to be able to showcase themselves and get out there,” said cofounder Chris Rapoza. “We were inspired by a lot of the vintage markets out west and wanted something like that upstate.”
