Indie Flea finds news home at Armature Works

TAMPA HEIGHTS— Indie Flea, a monthly showcase of local and regional makers, has made its mark at its new location at Armature Works just north of downtown Tampa directly on the Hillsborough River at 1910 N Ola Ave.

The Indie Flea was previously held at the Rialto Theatre, but its growing market called for a bigger space.

Its new space, the Gathering, is the largest indoor event space at Armature Works covering 10,000 square feet, and has views to an open-air courtyard allowing access to the Heights Public Market.

The market offers a unique shopping experience focusing on local initiatives and sustainability, featuring fine artists, jewelry, and home good creators, food artisans, succulent growers, vintage collectors, designers, printmakers and upstart businesses.

"We're focused on creating real value, exposure and goodwill for local creatives with various design backgrounds," said Seanissey Loughlin of Indie Flea.

"Indie Flea and Armature Works share a deep commitment to supporting local commerce and with our increased capacity we're able to bring even more vendors together to showcase their products."

Indie Flea takes place every third Sunday of the month at Armature Works, and its next event is this Sunday (March 18).
