The inspiration behind the Gypsy Market, held at The Little Fleet in Traverse City, was for it to not be a farmers market. Instead, it was meant to be a collection of antiques, crafts, and house-made goods—things vendors wouldn’t generally be able to sell at the nearby Sarah Hardy Farmers Market. It’s a place for Northern Michigan locals and vacationers to shop for their home or cottage, enjoy Northern Michigan food and drinks and meet local vendors. Grab some breakfast at a food truck and shop around for local goods at the Gypsy Market in Traverse City.

Open from noon to 4 pm every Sunday until August 17th, the Gypsy Market offers a space for vendors to sell their goods free of charge. Space is limited and based on a first come first serve basis. Goods are set-up along the tables that surround the bar within The Little Fleet.The Little FleetThe selection of vendors will change from week to week. Purchase anything from oils supplied by Pressmeister Oils, fresh succulents from Terranium Bar, and even clothes, shoes, and housewares. The changing schedule of vendors will make sure that the market is always fresh and interesting.
