Davis Square Flea Starts June 3!





The Davis Flea: an Open-air Market Lands in the Heart of Davis Square

Currently, Davis Square is already known for its many unique retail stores and restaurants. There will be a new entertainment and retail attraction in Davis Square called The Davis Flea

Rather than focusing on selling new products and crafts, The Davis Flea will focus on the concept of “ reclaim, repurpose” that of which we already have. Dealers will be selling vintage, repurposed and antique merchandise, which will be tightly scrutinized or curated by The Davis Flea. Some of the merchandise will capitalize on the current trend of mid-century vintage items popularized on the TV show, Mad Men. This market will be an exciting new addition to the already eclectic and diverse Davis Square environment.

The latter part of The Davis Flea’s motto is: “rediscover, reconnect” and The Davis Flea will be a source of entertainment for the community and an opportunity for people to gather and reconnect while drawing people from other communities as well.

The Davis Flea will boost the surrounding businesses with an increase in added foot traffic. The local businesses will be involved in a cross promotion campaign of this community event.
In an effort strengthen the community even further, The Davis Flea will provide booth space within the flea market for community organizations, local farmers and non-profits.

The Davis Flea is co-managed by partners Greg Ghazil, Jennifer Kniff and Maureen Nuccitelli. All three partners have roots tied to Davis Square and a mission to make The Davis Flea the hot event of the week during the ongoing season.
