On December 8th and 9th, 2017, long-running Nashville makers market Porter Flea will be kicking off the holiday shopping season at The Nashville Fairgrounds (625 Smith Ave), bringing more than 150 local and regional artists out to share their unique, local and handmade gifts. As with past Porter Fleas, it’ll be far more than a shopping experience, with a huge crew of local businesses and partners on hand keeping attendees well-fed, well-entertained and even well-coiffed.
Porter Flea is bringing that retro Nashville flavor back by moving this Holiday Market to the Nashville Fairgrounds. Located indoors and heated with plenty of parking this is the same Porter Flea that you love in a new location.
The 2017 Porter Flea Holiday Market kicks off Friday with a ticketed Preview Market (6 to 9 p.m.), offering early, intimate shopping access, ahead of Saturday’s Main Market, which is free and open to the public (from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
A collection of Nashville's finest food trucks will be serving up holiday cheer via seasonal food and drink options both days alongside local craft brewery Jackalope.

Nashville’s Porter Flea was launched in July 2011, with a focus on celebrating modern handmade goods. Now in its sixth year, the juried and curated, semi-annual market is led by Katie Vance and her husband, HollerDesign owner Matt Alexander, who continue an emphasis on the handmade art and design movement, local businesses and community building. Along with connecting hundreds of local/regional makers with tens of thousands of shoppers, Porter Flea has earned consistent press praise, including being named Best Artisan Market by the Nashville Scene in 2012, and appearing in Southern Living, Garden & Gun, Native, Forbes Travel Guide, StyleBlueprint and other publications.
