Grand Rapids



The Faire Flea Grand Rapids (previously Indie Flea GR) is a monthly Mitten makers market event which happens the first Saturday of every month, October through May, at the Historic Wealthy Theatre in Grand Rapids and their Community Media Center/Annex from 10am until 4pm. They are fun and uplifting events that bring the community together to discover the hidden and talented local creative businesses. They are an outlet to empower creatives to get their work out there and to help develop emerging startups to get more immersed in their community. It fosters a positive growth in the community towards supporting small shops and local businesses through networking and creative collaborations. All of our vendors are devoted to making a positive change in our future with the products and services they offer and hold a purpose card at their booth for customers to engage in and spark shared passion conversation. They also serve the purpose of making each business's socially responsible credentials known, establishing that emotional connection that form lasting relationships. The Faire Flea GR events are environmentally responsible, have a very restrictive single serving units of plastic policy and are working towards a zero waste process. These events are about creativity, expression, collaboration, engagement and meaningful experiences. 

Really, what’s the point of us all coming together? To connect people with the shared purpose of adding value to the lives of everyone in the community.

The logo flea wears one heart shaped monocle which represents seeing kindness and intention in all aspects of our lives. This embodies the spirit and unique culture that has been created by the businesses of the Indie Flea.
