It’s pretty early in the semester and if you’re sitting in your dorm wondering what to do in Los Angeles (there’s a lot), then you might want to check out some of these flea markets in the area. They’re not too far from campus if you drive, so get that one friend that brought their car to campus or carpool with a friend or two and split the Uber bill to go find some hidden gems.
Los Feliz Flea
Located in Los Feliz, this flea market requires a mere 30-minute drive and they’re open every Saturday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. As one of the most well-known flea markets in L.A. County, @losfelizflea on Instagram boasts over 58k followers. The Los Feliz Flea is filled with tons of things to do. There’s loads of food trucks posted at the venue, along with dozens upon dozens of vendors that sell a multitude of items, from collectibles to art pieces to vintage clothing and many other items. The best part is that there’s free admission and free parking as well, although it may be limited because of this flea’s popularity. It’s also open rain or shine, so there’s no worries of having to cancel plans unless some unexpected natural disaster hits L.A.
