Among the various citywide farmers markets and the weekly waterfront shitshow that is Saturday Market, the Portland Flea one of the relatively lesser-known seasonal recurrences. Taking place once a month from May through October, this market specializes in antique or re-purposed furniture and vintage clothing and collectibles—a one-stop pre-selected smorgasbord for thrifters and grazers. Vendors include Ampersand Gallery & Fine Books and XXXXXVintage, the collected finds of fashion designer Julia Barbee. And if you're worried you'll starve without ready access to cart food, never fear: Fifty Licks, Voodoo Doughnut, Taco Pedaler, and Water Ave Coffee will all be there at the year's first edition, this Saturday May 19, 10 am-4 pm at Union/Pine.
