Before June 2011, the concept of a true “urban flea market” — one not defined by moth-ridden attic flotsam and worn furniture — was one foreign to Cincinnatians, even amidst a bubbling arts and culture scene
. Now in its second year, The City Flea has changed all that, anchoring creatives of all varieties from across the city with a curated urban market teeming with life, color and artistic verve. Browse vintage clothing, local artisan foods, handcrafted art and more. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday Aug. 18. Washington Park. 1230 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. thecityflea.com.
