As a food vendor (Pop Up Restaurant, Baker, Farmer’s Market):
If you make and sell food we have lots of possibilities for you. Food Truck owners see the Food Truck Entry.
We are excited to offer space each month within a Retail Ready storefront to host a pop up restaurant. If you have mobile cooking abilities and wish to have a pop up restaurant we are a match made in happening heaven. Apply today to become a monthly pop up restaurant by describing your offerings and the aesthetic you would like to present. Let us know what types of foods/meals/theme you intent to offer and we will be in touch to learn more about you and your vision.
Not sure that a whole space is the best venue for you? No problem. Apply for a spot among our flea vendors if you sell baked goods, farmer’s market items, prepared foods, frozen foods including local meat, cheese, etc. We will have both dedicated food areas and will mix food options into the flea. Let us know what you prefer. And, make sure to have your food sales license number for us. We’ll need that for sure!
Got Food Truck?
AWESOME! We are looking to create a pop up food truck destination every Second Saturday of the month at The Cleveland Flea. We’ll want to know about your truck your needs for the day. Apply as a vendor and fill in the Food Truck info. We can’t wait to offer a vibrant lane of food options for shoppers!
As an Individual Flea Vendor: Do you have items hanging out at your place that you’d like to hang out at someone else’s place? Grab a spot as a flea vendor or drop off your items and for a small fee we will add them to the week’s Pop Up shop where shoppers can browse items in a curated pop up storefront setting. You do not need to be present to sell in The Cleveland Flea pop up. The fun is in talking to customers telling the story of your items so apply for a space and sell what you’ve got! Which works best for you? Let us know.
