In 1991, I started the Melrose Flea Market at the Fairfax High School. Now it is the Melrose Trading Post (different owners) and from there I created a number of “Support Local” far before anyone knew what that meant. From Peddler on the Roof at the Sunset Gower Studios Rooftop Parking Lot to Dodger Stadium Flea with 500 vendors and 20,000 attendees to Truckit Fest and now Odd Markets. Currently, my wife and I operate Odd Market shows on The Santa Monica Pier, at The Autry, The Bloc and soon opening in Glendale at Central Park.
Our events feature music, local makers selling their wares (pop-up shops), food trucks, kids inflatables and attractions and some have full bars.
For more than 27 years I have been producing family-centric festivals.
