SALT LAKE CITY -- The Urban Flea Market is now open in downtown Salt Lake City on 600 South and Main Street.

And the vendors say it's not just a place to buy vintage goods; it's like a community festival with good food, original music and stuff you can’t find at a store.

“The farmers markets focus on food and produce and that sort of thing. This is a venue for people to sell vintage goods, antiques, people have their yard sales here,” said the Urban Flea Market Co-organizer Michael Sanders.

“I've seen so many things that I would love to get, but I'm kind of one of those people who has to look at everything before I make any commitments,” said shopper Amy Cloud.

The people who frequent the market said they're looking for a deal and something you can't find anywhere else.

“It's getting harder and harder to find the really rare treasures that no one has found,” said shopper Michael Nielsen. “You used to be able to come into these things and find that piece that was a real expensive piece and they didn't realize what they had. But everyone knows it now. So now you look for the fun pieces.”

The flea market is open one Sunday of every month from now through October. Click here for details and a schedule.
