Historic Woodruff Place Flea Market

Do you live for discovering the most unique finds? Think vintage decor, funky art, and rustic furniture. Now, don’t you wish you could peruse hundreds of cool shops with these things all at once?

You can. This weekend, the Woodruff Place Historic Neighborhood is hosting their highly anticipated neighborhood sale. Let me share with you some some tips. (P.S. This event is abolutely worthy of a trip for out of town guests.) 

Woodruff Place Flea MarketWoodruff Place is located one mile east of downtown Indy and is recognized as Indy's first planned residential suburb. The neighborhood was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, boasting Victorian era homes and grand fountains. Comprised of three main streets, West, Middle and East, Woodruff will be a place of treasures and sight-seeing this weekend. To be more specific, there will be 80 acres and over 200 yards filled with treasures for sale. 

With sales Saturday and Sunday, if you want in on the best of the best, arrive early on Saturday morning (coffee in hand, of course!). If you are looking to make some deals, check out what’s left on Sunday afternoon. Some savvy neighbors put out new items on both days, so if you are looking for something special, be sure to ask.

Did I mention coffee? Woodruff’s event will boast many great, local vendors to keep your energy up. Keep an eye out for:

  • Citizen Hash
  • Der Pretzel Wagen
  • NY Slice
  • Sully's Famous Hot Dogs
  • Simple & Good Catering
  • Cosmic Chrome Cafe 
  • General American Donut Co.
  • Gordons Ice Cream
  • Duos
  • Nicey Treat
  • Flat 12 Beirwerks
  • The Super Giant Tenderloin
  • Natural Board Juicers
  • Midwest Concessions
  • Vino Mobile Bar

Beware: this neighborhood is weird. And we really like it that way. Keep an eye out for live entertainment, odd sales, and a time during the day where all shoppers freeze for an afternoon dance party. Even if you don’t plan on purchasing, you definitely want to attend. It is always a beautiful two days to enjoy the neighborhood, residents, food and entertainment.

See you there!

P.S. Don’t miss Society of Salvage’s lot sale this weekend, too, located nearby.
