Melrose and Fairfax
The Melrose Trading Post is at a crossroads of two very popular Avenues in Los Angeles, Melrose and Fairfax. These two streets have personalities of their own, featuring local businesses, restaurants and art galleries.
Every Sunday, Melrose Trading Post offers a curated, ever-changing array of arts and crafts, vintage fashion, antique furniture, handcrafted artisan goods and one-of-a-kind treasures.
When you shop or sell at Melrose Trading Post, you support youth and education at Fairfax High School. In 1997, Whitney Weston and Pierson Blaetz co-founded Melrose Trading Post through their nonprofit Greenway Arts Alliance, building communities through art, education and enterprise.
Through admission and vendor fees, your support helps provide jobs for students, and fund field trips, sports equipment, beautification projects, teacher programs, theatre productions, and more, totaling well over seven million dollars to date.
As part of the Greenway Go! Series, the Melrose Trading Post showcases local musicians every Sunday on the Food Court Stage. Local music curators, All Scene Eye, curate the line-up every 2nd Sundays of the month.
