Downtown Flea, located in the Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles, has been a popular destination for groups of creative trailblazers, families, and A-list celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Clea DuVall. Downtown Flea is located between Spring and Main on 3rd street from 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. Admission cost is $3 at the door and $2 online, which allows individuals access both lots. Tickets may be purchased on location at the ticket booth or online at www.dtflea.com. Ample parking is available at Joe's six story structure located between 2nd and 3rd on Spring Street for a reduced rate of $5 for the day.

Since its launch in July 2013, Downtown Flea has been dubbed "The Best Flea Market in Los Angeles"; making Angelenos request it take place weekly rather than monthly. Starting Sunday, January 26th, the flea will hit the Historic Core every Sunday 10a.m.-4:00p.m. The marketplace will also be refined in size, occupying two parking lots, and host 135 prime vendors to and guarantee every event will be the quintessential shopping experience. The flea's hand-picked local vendors will offer unique items ranging from first-rate vintage clothing and furniture to handmade accessories and housewares.

Prized for being not just a flea market but also a block party, Downtown Flea will be stacked with DJs and food trucks. New participating food trucks include, El Nosh and Son Of A Bun - two gourmet eateries delivering meals on wheels by renowned chefs - attending January 26th.

Chefs Eric Greenspan and Roberto Treviño, from The Next Iron Chef, created El Ñosh - a Latin Delicatessen, which serves up an inventive menu of Latin-Jewish fusion cuisine including appetizers such as Pastrami and Dill Pickle Croquetas with yellow mustard, Matzah Ball "Albondiga" Soup with Beef Consommé & Chipotle Braised Celery, Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese "Quesadillas" with Red Onion & Cucumber Salad, entrees such as Beef Brisket with Horseradish "Pozole", Beets & Radish, Kasha "Congrí" with Romesco, "Calabaza", "Cotija" Cheese & Zatar and desserts such as Poppy & Sesame Seed Crusted Churros with Gelt Melt and Guava & Cream Cheese Blintzes.

Son Of A Bun is a Los Angeles-based food truck run by Christina Meyer, culinary developer for MobiMunch, that stacks up the finest, freshly made burgers, dogs, and donuts made with local and sustainable ingredients. Menu creations start by choosing a protein - fresh hand-pressed burgers, 24-hour marinated all-natural chicken, or grilled hot dogs that snap. Second, choose a style - House, Western, Avoegg, or Picante. Then the mouthwatering sides, S.O.B. Fries, sweet and tangy House Slaw, and Seasonal Salad with basil, tomato, and mozzarella tossed in olive oil.
