Downtown Victoria is about to get its own flea market in Market Square.

Running every Sunday from May 4 until Sept. 28, the flea market will include everything from vintage clothing to handmade fishing flies to collectable stamps and coins, said Valerie Rawlings.

“We’re expecting the first market to launch with a minimum of 40 sellers,” Rawlings said. “The interest to date has been almost overwhelming.”

Admission to the flea market is free, where patrons can find authentic, old-fashioned, vintage and recycled goods throughout the summer.

The event runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
