Friday Find - Kansas City's Art Flea Market

Started as a way to provide an economical gallery location for artists to get their art into the hands of the public at amazingly affordable prices, everything's $1-$50, Art Flea brings over 30 artists together each Saturday to sell their wears. Each week you'll find a different assortment of art, handmade goods and vintage finds. Kansas City Etsy Street Team members who have participated in this weekly Saturday event, have all commented on the amazing variety of artists and vendors who participate in this relatively new art treasure trove.

Located just blocks from the Power and Light District and Sprint Center at 1522 Holmes, KC’s Art Flea Market is a unique venue for buying local art, handmade items and recycled vintage goods.

Vendors and visitors can find out more about KC’s Art Flea Market on their website at, via email at and by phone at 816-461-0201.

“We are excited to be a part of the growing Crossroads Art District. We are in debt to the many artists that worked really hard to create the original Crossroads Art stir. We hope to contribute by bringing business to the area on Saturdays,” says KC Art Flea marketer and artist, Michele Bridges.

The organizers (ArtsTech and Storytellers) are nonprofits and are hosting the event to bring public awareness to their services and also support their dual mission of providing new venues and resources to local artists and greater public access to quality arts and cultural events. The event is free to enter and gives the public one on one access to a diverse collective of artists.
