ART & FLEA: HAWAII’S FAVORITE URBAN MARKET
If you want to experience a unique shopping experience here in Hawaii, the Art & Flea is one of them to check out.
At the Art & Flea, obviously is an art themed event, but it offers a subversive experience of Hawaii’s modern and contemporary art culture. The event hosts over 30 local-only vendors and entrepreneurs that offers anything and everything Hawaii made. From handcrafted jewelry, artwork, apparel, music, products, etc., every event has different offerings from different vendors every month.
You can satisfy your hunger by getting your grind on my local food vendors and food trucks. Or have a drink and shop under the night sky as they have a bar. They also have music and entertainment from local music artists to dance clubs for you to enjoy as well. It’s a nice way to see the local talent that Hawaii has to offer.
The Art & Flea is a pop up usually held once a month, every 3rd Thursday, near the Ward Warehouse shopping mall and entertainment center (1050 Ala Moana Blvd.). Although they do pop up shop in other spots around Oahu from time to time. Held during the evening you’ll be able to enjoy shopping under the cool night sky. So you can make your way there after the hike up Diamond Head or from enjoying the sunset at Mount Tantalus.
What the Art & Flea does that makes it a fun and unique experience is with every event there is a theme that the organization implements and the vendors and customers are urged to participate in as well. It keeps every event different and interesting.
If you’re in Honolulu during the 3rd Thursday of the month, be sure to check out the Art & Flea for a unique Hawaii shopping event!
