Pop Up Ave Flea Market Returns To State College

Pop Up Ave, an outdoor flea market that features the trendiest vendors from across Pennsylvania, will return to State College on Saturday, September 23. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m at the Garner Street parking lot.

Knitted scarves, taco stickers, and artisanal food items are only a few of the items that you’ll be able to find at the free event, which will also feature live music and activities for all ages.

“The momentum for this event keeps increasing and we’re so happy people enjoy it,” Pop Up Ave co-founder Andrea Groznik said in a press release.

Groznik and her husband, Brad, last hosted the event in April. More than 3,000 local residents and students ventured to the lot for the outdoor flea market and beer garden. The event will take place rain or shine.

Here’s a preview of some the vendors you can expect to see at the event:
