Here’s a sneak peek at some of the vendors attending and the goods they will have with them!

They will be serving delicious steel cut oatmeal for breakfast  as well a delicious assortment of scones and croissants. Delicious teas from Pluck! are available on board along with all of your favourite coffee beverages – espressos, lattes, cappuccinos and made to order hot cocoa.

Super excited to have them on board at the Flea!





Peter Gray sees endless possibilities in a piece of reclaimed wood, barn board, a discarded dresser left by the side of the road or an antique shoe stand. Following heart surgery in 2012, Peter used an inherited saw and drill to build a cedar bench. Since then, he has designed and constructed well over a hundred tables, benches, stools, cabinets and kitchen islands that are inspired by the simple lines and finishes of antique and vintage furniture from Canada, Scandinavia, France, Italy and Spain. What began with one bench has grown into Urban Forest Design.
