Safari #81: Davis Flea Market

I love visiting vintage markets on Sunday afternoons.  I don't know if it's the thrill of the hunt or the excitement that I'm doing to discover something both awesome and inspiring.  I think it's both.

If you're looking for that just right sized table or extra glasses for the kitchen, visit the Davis Flea.  Located right in the heart of Davis Square, on Holland Street inside the municipal parking lot, this market focuses less on food items and clothing (even though both of those things are great too), and more on tchotchke's, glassware, furniture, lighting fixtures, mirrors, prints, vintage maps and other randomly inspired objects d'art.

If you have recently moved or are looking for something to inspire your pad, be sure to visit.  If you have extra time on your hands to include brunch too, try Johnny's D's.  The jazz brunch was fun, and the food and crowd were great too.


  1. I've been wanting to go to the Davis Flea for a few weeks. I finally did yesterday. We went to Johnny's D's first and then went to the market. It was a great day! I didn't get anything, but my friend got some vintage shoes and ceramic figurines.

    1. Hi Erica! Thanks for reading. I'm glad you had such a good time. It's a great market!
