The May Re-Flea
The Flea Off Market happens around once a month in the warmer months and is one of Louisville's quintessential pleasures. Nothing says "keep Louisville weird" like strolling around with a Flea Tea, and burger from Grind, picking up antiques, art, and various fripperies. Last weekend's Flea was plagued with bad weather, so this weekend the Flea is holding a "May Re-Flea" on Saturday, at Fresh Start Grower's Supply. So come on out, buy local, and support artists and small businesses in your community!
