For a city like Youngstown, having a community-centered flea market is not just about having a space to sell homemade products — it’s about how each good is a reflection of what makes Youngstown feel like family. First founded in 2016, marketgoers can expect to be greeted by all kinds of vendors including hand-thrown ceramics from Lynn Cardwell Pottery, houseplants from Midwest Plant Co. and many others.
Plus, after recently acquiring a 25,000-square-foot building in 2020, the market is now able to hold monthly markets year-round. With markets set for Sept. 11 and Oct. 9, look for a Shop Small Saturday market in November and a December holiday market. “It’s amazing to introduce a community of makers to a community of supporters,” says founder Derrick McDowel. 365 E.
