Melrose Trading Post

The Melrose Trading Post is a festival and market held every Sunday outside of Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. There are typically three or four thousand attendees, all looking for great flea market finds at this larger than life market. The market is organized by the Greenway Arts Alliance and Greenway Friends of Fairfax and is a fundraising event for the Friends. It is considered the most successful, longest running fundraising event in the country. There is a food court located in the upper area so visitors can enjoy lunch and live jazz music performances while they take a break from hunting for discounted treasures. The food court feature ethnic dishes including crepes, Mexican cuisine, gourmet coffee, and authentic Argentinean dishes. Vendors in the market area of Melrose Trading Post include handicraft artists, antique dealers, and collectible salespeople. All merchandise must be used or one of-a-kind items, so you are not going to find wholesale booths filled with cheap knockoffs of name-brand items at this market. Food, except at the food court, adult items, animals, and weapons are not allowed. Vendors rent booths which raise the funds for the Greenway Friends, and peddle their wares to curious bargain hunters and those who stop by to see what all the excitement is about. The market is a popular destination for both locals an tourists in the area.
