Friends in the Marketplace: The Funky Fleamarket is an one of a kind experience where vendors and shoppers from the DC Metropolitan Area connect each and every Saturday and Sunday to share the "goods." In addition to locals, vendors come from as far as Rhode Island and from as close as New York and Philadelphia to sell their new and used goods and shoppers come from the entire DC Metropolitan area and tourists come from all corners of the globe.
The market first opened to the public on Saturday, May 28, 2005 and has been a positive reflection of a community that is has deep roots in Washington, DC. The fabric of the market is built on community support and would not be possible without the support of Gallaudet University and Youth Group and Associates, Inc.
We work each and every weekend to produce a marketplace where community members can connect, reflect and support each other in a safe and productive way. Our first ever Fall marketing campaign - ARRIVE. SHOP. CONNECT. ENJOY - features our resident dj, Dj Paul and two of our regular shoppers.
