You may have heard that there is a new flea market popping up in Downtown. The new Downtown Flea was created by event creator Philip Dane.
What you may not know is that Mr. Dane has a history with Fairfax High School!
Mr. Dane started a successful market in the early 1990’s that ran for three years at Fairfax High School.
In fact, his market inspired the co-founders of our market, Whitney Weston and Pierson Blaetz to create the non-profit Melrose Trading Post.
The Melrose Trading Post has officially been in operation since 1997 and has grown to be the incredible market it is today (with your help of course)!
We wish Philip Dane the best of luck with his new endeavor Downtown.
