After just four years of business, Porter Flea is putting on its tenth Market on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. And with just over 140 vendors set to present their hand-made products and gifts, this year is the largest event by scale in the market’s history.
“We want to make this the most comprehensive market we’ve ever organized,” said event director Brent Elrod. “We have more space than we’ve ever had, which is a huge benefit to bringing most of the event indoors.”
But even though most of the event is indoors, there will be plenty of space to roam around and observe the artisanal wares of some of the the area’s most talented craftspeople. For the first time since Porter Flea began, it will present the “Holiday X” Market inside one of Nashville’s largest indoor event centers, Silver Point Studios.
And this year, besides every vendor presenting their product independently, Porter Flea has encouraged several collaborations between the different markets. Apparel Designers are teaming up with Textile vendors; Furniture Designers are teaming up with screen printing experts; pottery and jewelry makers are teaming up for a few non-conventional efforts of dexterity.
On Dec. 4, a ticketed preview event will be held for guests who prefer a more exclusive “V-I-Flea” market experience.
This event will run from 6-9 p.m. and will feature complimentary beer and wine, food trucks, and a chance to appreciate the thousands of handmade products that will be presented the next day.
