New York-Based Group Brings ‘Hipster Flea Market’ to District


D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood is preparing to welcome a new “hipster flea market” that is part of a New York-based group called “Artists & Fleas.”

The D.C. location will open this spring in the spot at 3276 M Street NW, which was formerly occupied by the upscale grocery store Dean & DeLuca, according to Washingtonian.

The Georgetown area store closed in August after operating for 26 years.

Established by Ronen Glimer and Amy Abrams in in 2003 in Williamsburg, New York City, the market chain offers shoppers the chance to “discover and buy unique local jewelry, vintage clothing, arts and crafts, and handmade goods.”

Artists & Fleas has currently a total of four branches, three in New York and one in Los Angeles.

The owners of the group first started contemplating opening a D.C. store several years ago and they loved the then-Dean & Deluca when they were taken on a tour of Georgetown Park by a real estate agent and waited until it became available in the summer of 2019.

The D.C. location is expected to open its doors in March.
