Description

Please note: This is the booking platform for makers, artists, vintage & flea traders & stall holders

Fore Street Flea

The Fore Street Flea is a bi-annual event celebrating the Independent West Quarter, run for the community by the community and is sponsored by InExeter.

It's a not for profit event and proceeds from stall booking fees go directly to a local charity with the rest of the funds being put towards marketing and promotional costs for the next event.

The Fore Street Flea gives a platform to artists & makers just starting out. We also welcome vintage & flea stalls so the event has an interesting and unique mix!

The independent businesses on Fore Street have all worked together to bring this event to you. Thank you for becoming part of our community.

Please ensure that your stall is set up and ready for 11.55am.

How big is my pitch?

2 Meters x 2 Meters - It's helpful to make sure your stall is as attractive and appealing to shoppers - you can use any props you like to display your items as long as they are safe, we ask you not to use glass displays or anything that may fall over or potentially cause harm to others. The Fore Street Flea does not supply tables or any props - you'll need to bring everything you need for your pitch.
