    Discovery Green Flea, a one-of-a-kind destination market, returns Saturday, November 19 in Houston’s popular downtown park. Held on the third Saturday of each month this fall from noon – 6 p.m., the market will feature numerous merchants and their recycled, renewed and refreshed merchandise. Families and treasure-hunting locals can also enjoy light bites and local music while strolling through the Grace Event Lawn for unique items.

    “We’re thrilled to bring this new, unique market to downtown Houston,” said Susanne Theis, Discovery Green programming director. “It will be full of exceptional merchants and fascinating items, as well as, a bit of entertainment and activities for all park visitors to enjoy.”

    At Discovery Green Flea, shoppers will find that everything old is new again. Dozens of on-site merchants will set up their artful kitsch, vintage items, mid-century modern furniture, recycled and repurposed items as well as collectibles in the shady southeast end of the park alongside Lamar Street and Avenidas de las Americas.

    “I am really excited about the opportunity to be involved with a market tied to Discovery Green,” said Thomas Escalante, owner of Sig’s Lagoon and featured merchant at the Discovery Green Flea. “I look forward to offering consumers a collection of pre-loved vinyl.”

    The new addition to the popular park will offer something for every range of shopper from the bargain hunter to the thoughtful, global shopper. With the planning expertise of Project for Public Spaces and Brooklyn Flea, Discovery Green Flea will be the place to see and be seen this fall.

    “Discovery Green is a very attractive location for a destination market,” said Kelly Verel, Senior Associate at Project for Public Spaces. “With the park’s broad programming mission, the new market will align perfectly with the Discovery Green’s diverse audience.”

    Shoppers can peruse the unique collectibles on September 17, October 15, November 19 and December 17. For more information on Discovery Green Flea visit: http://www.discoverygreen.com/discovery-green-flea/.
