Thank you for your interest in The Toronto Flea, previously named The Leslieville Flea. We are the oldest vintage and handcrafted market in Toronto and we aim to only accept vendors who sell vintage, handcrafted, local or limited edition items. We do not accept vendors who sell mass produced or imported goods. We try to maintain a balance of goods at all of our markets and choose vendors accordingly for each market. New to our market? Check out our IG or TikTok for a sense of who we are and how we are different than other markets in our city.
If you think it sounds like you'd be a good fit we would love to hear from you! Please apply via the link below (it will open a new tab).
VENDOR APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO APPLY. Applications close March 15th, 2024.
Our business strategy this season is less is more. It is our goal to continue to support our insanely talented vendors and we will do so by remaining flexible and riding the wave that is global events and our economy. With the country and community demonstrating spending at an all time low - The Toronto Flea as a business must respond and do our part. We had over a dozen markets last season and while it was an amazing ride - we learned so much and are prepared to take those key learnings and apply it for a 2024 season surrounding a very special word ... anticipation. Our Ashbridge Estate market is the most popular market within the east side of Toronto. Last year, we hosted 50 vendors and over 3,000 attendees at our inaugural event and are proud to say that we had a vendor wait list every month. We could easily then host our market every weekend at the same location but alas - that is not how our community likes to spend their money - and boy - our community likes to spend, shop small + support local. After all, our goal is for YOU to make more money than your sales goal.
It's true - last season we popped up in other locations other than our hallmark staple and had had great success, however taking into account the balance of quality, quantity and economics we feel this the right decision for this season.
So what can you expect? More sunshine, live music, beer + incredible sales. We will be centering ourselves around our home - The Ashbridge Estate and we are excited and over the moon to focus on delivering a destination event each month from June to October with the exception of August (a key month where families in the east end vacate Toronto). Expect more gift guides, inclusion + highlights of our vendors incredible works, influencer / creator partnership(s) and so much more to promote this season.
A big thank you to those who have supported us to get here and trust us as a partner in your business. We see you. We love you. We are ready for 2024, baby
