We cannot say ‘thank you’ enough to everyone who helped make this market our best one yet. We are overwhelmed with gratitude at the support of our community and we want to sincerely thank everyone — our incredibly talented artists and makers, our shoppers, volunteers, and families. It takes everyone to make our events succeed and we couldn’t have done it with you. Take a look at our super awesome event photos from the oh so talented Emily Jones right here! See you in in 2014!

*Parking Info: Chestnut Street will be closed between Martin Street and 4th Avenue South for food truck and visitor parking.

Parking is also allowed on neighborhood streets if Chestnut Street is full. Carpooling is encouraged.
*Porter Flea Holiday opens at 10am on Saturday. Sorry, no early bird shopping.
*Limited edition screen printed holiday posters and Porter Flea t-shirts, hoodies, and mugs will be available at the Porter Flea merch booth.
*An ATM will be onsite, but please remember to bring cash if possible.
*If you want a more leisurely shopping experience, try late afternoon. We close up shop at 6pm.
Saturday is free to attend and is all ages!
Our market coincides with the Wedgewood-Houston art crawl, and all the nearby galleries and studios are extending their hours to make this a full-blown holiday block party. Come warm up with us indoors, and don’t forget to check out the heated Porter Pantry tent out front featuring local, artisanal dry goods! Enjoy our Holiday photobooth for custom holiday cards by Claudia Kay Photo and DJ sets all day long from Grimey’s and DJ Susan. We will also have our first ever VideoBooth by Dycee Wildman!
