Westside Flea

Maire gets a boop.
Summer in Northeast Ohio brings, among other things, lots of open-air markets. One that I really like is the Westside Flea in North Olmsted.

The Westside Flea is held one Saturday each month in the summer, including tomorrow, at North Olmsted Community Park. Art, jewelry home goods and handmade soap are among the items for sale. Food trucks and a farmers market also are there. 

It's a good event for animal lovers. You can bring your leashed dog and you can meet adorable alpacas from Gaelic Glen Alpacas in Perrysville.  

You have only a couple more chances to attend the Westside Flea -- tomorrow and Sept. 21. July's Flea was canceled because of bad weather. 

Admission to the Flea is free, but each month shoppers are invited to bring nonperishable goods to benefit a local charity. Anyone who makes two donations or more will get a free Westside Flea tote bag.

The Flea begins at 9 a.m. with a free yoga session at the gazebo and ends at 3 p.m. Two things I really like about the Westside Flea are the variety of vendors and the plentiful parking. I'm also partial to the alpacas.
