The Denver Flea: An Afternoon at the Market in City Park

Earlier this week, some friends were talking about going to the Denver Flea. I hadn’t heard about it before, but I love garage saling and thrift store shopping so I decided to head out to City Park – the location of the 10th market – this weekend with my little one, ZB.

The Denver Flea is not, as I believed, a flea market. Since that was what I expected, I was a little disappointed. But once we started exploring, ZB and I had a great time. There were lots of mom and pop tents, as well as medium sizes businesses. Craft jewelry, independently designed clothing, small artists, handmade soaps and candles, and lots more. For the flea gratification I desired, there were a couple antique furniture places too. And, of course, a few Colorado-gear oriented businesses – hats + t-shirts. It boasts Colorado-makers and features live music as well as beer tents. The unique twist: the location of the market changes each time.

ZB and I also checked out the food trucks of course and had some delicious Latin American food. After filling our bellies, we wandered around some more and checked out the tiny home display. Then we headed back to the food trucks for some frozen yogurt to cool off. ZB loved getting it all over her face and shirt (and even a little in her mouth!). She got to run around with other kids on the grass, making the adventure totally worth it for her too.

If you don’t have any plans for tomorrow, we’d recommend checking out the Denver Flea at City Park. Otherwise, watch for the next market at the Denver Flea’s website.
