The race is on!  Here’s your chance to take the pole position for all of the best handmade goods at Porter Flea Summer Market 2014.  Enjoy complimentary fill-ups from Jackalope Brewing Co while supporting the area’s most talented designers and artisans at this exclusive event.  Join us for the PF Summer Preview at Track 1 on Friday night, June 6th, from 6-9pm.  And come hungry!  Our friends at Mas Tacos will be parked outside all night selling their legendary tacos, frescas, y mas, and Legato Gelato will be indoors serving up cool summer flavors. Attendees will also receive a limited edition event poster courtesy of MADE SOUTH.  And our pals at Craftcourse will be hosting a special crafting area for the official Etsy Craft Party on Friday only!

Porter Flea Summer 2014 features our most carefully curated lineup ever: over 80 of the region’s best designers of modern handmade apparel and accessories, home goods, furniture, jewelry, and paper goods.  This summer we’re also teaming up with Hey Rooster General Store for a bigger and better Porter Pantry, an artisanal food marketplace highlighting local products and dry goods from 14 of our favorite makers, millers, and bakers.  Check out our outstanding Vendor lineup right here.  Don’t miss the opportunity to see them all — and to have first crack at the summer’s hottest handmade wares — the night before the crowds arrive for the free admission market!

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!
