Vulcan Real Estate is excited to share that the Punk Rock Flea Market‘s December event will take place this year at 23rd and Jackson, specifically inside the former Red Apple Grocery between Saturday, December 9 (12-10pm) and Sunday, December 10 (12-5pm).   

The Punk Rock Flea Market originated in a Belltown basement and has since expanded rapidly, bringing together vendors from all over the region and thousands of attendees biannually, with events often taking place in the months of June and December. What is particularly remarkable about this market is that it benefits the Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) – a nonprofit organization that provides homes for homeless and low-income people all around the Puget Sound. The market’s entry fee is only one dollar and 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to LIHI. 

“When we found out that the Punk Rock Flea Market was still looking for a location to host its December market, we were very happy to offer one of our spaces,” said Ada M. Healey, Vice President of Real Estate at Vulcan Inc. “As a longstanding partner of LIHI, we’re excited to provide a venue to benefit this great organization, which helps so many Seattle families.” 

LIHI has developed two buildings in the vicinity of 23rd and Jackson property – Ernestine Anderson Place and Abbey Lincoln Court, both named after influential and award-winning African American jazz and blues artists. Both provide subsidized housing for homeless and low-income seniors. 

Beyond contributing to a great cause, visitors can expect to browse hundreds of unique treasures, from arts and crafts to jams and jellies to jewelry and vintage clothing. Fun fact? There are no guidelines around what can be sold from vendors, the market welcomes all kinds of merchandise, so whether you’re planning to make a purchase or not, the array is guaranteed to grab your attention!

We hope to see you there!
