This new market is certain to catch on fast with its spectacular views of the DTLA Skyline and tons of parking. The first one kicks off on Saturday, September 14th with up to 50 Pop-Ups. We will be rockin’ some great music and to be honest “testing the waters” with No Admission and Free Parking. Visit theoddmarket.com/rooftop for more information.

Vendor space is still available and hell, it will be for a long time with a 40,000 square foot roof. We have room for 200 Vendors!  Visit theoddmarket.com for details!

 

20 Questions on YouTube coming soon.

20 Questions on YouTube coming soon.

I am excited to be launching a YouTube and Web Channel Series titled Meet The Makers. We will be producing a fun and factual series on our many Vendors and Food Trucks in the coming weeks. Each segment will be about 10 minutes in length and have a shotgun series of 20 random questions that our unsuspecting guests are not privy to until the camera rolls.

Mostly aimed at showcasing what the Vendor has to offer, how they got into it and where to get it but also some fun questions and intimate look into their backstories. Where they came from. Their influences and an occasional. “what’s your favorite color” thrown in for good measure. 

Vendors & Food Trucks! Want to be featured on Meet The Makers, please email [email protected] for information.  We tape once a week in Silver Lake. 

 

Zip Line down Commonwealth on Oct 5th

Zip Line down Commonwealth on Oct 5th

You heard right. I’m putting a 200′ Zip Line right down Commonwealth between Franklin and Clarissa. And a Beer and Wine Bar. And Bungee Jumping. And Mini Go-Karts. And 9 hole Mini Golf then add in the best BBQ brought to you by Highland Hickory 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

14 Food Trucks, Live Performances, Local Crafters and of course the

Internationally Famous Franklin Avenue Pinewood Derby where students go head to head to compete for bragging rights as the fastest derby car on the block and the “Best in Show” too. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is going to be one hell of a Fall Festival benefiting the Friends of Franklin located at 1910 N. Commonwealth in Los Feliz. Visit us at theoddmarket.com/foffallfest

If you haven’t been yet to our cool little community event called Food Truckin’ Tuesdays then you might want to swing by tomorrow night. Starting at 5 Pm and going until 9 or 10 Pm (depends on how busy we are) we dish up 9 Food Trucks, some local vendors, music, and inflatables for the kids. There’s seating and music too. For a complete lineup, visit our Food Truckin’ Tuesday page.

Shop Odd Market Online

Shop Odd Market Online

It’s been about a week or so since we launched the Odd Market Place. We have a handful of great vendors up so far and more are in the works. Check out our Shop today and we’d love to hear from you. Our goal is to make items from the more than 2000 Vendors on our site, accessible whether you come to our events or not. In time, we plan on offering thousands of items for sale, all benefiting local Makers! Each Shop is independently operated by the Vendor. Think of it as our version of Etsy.

Not to brag, but we have a pretty kick-ass site with a ton happening in the background. The Odd Market site is a Membership Site. It’s an Event Booking Site. It’s an Online Shopping Site and it’s all done under one roof. Now, that doesn’t mean that you need all the bells and whistles but with over 2500 Vendors registered with us, I have seen my share of sites and let’s be honest… many are in need of some TLC. Some should have an entire overhaul. Then there are those who don’t even have a site but are relying on Social Media (not a great idea) so what’s the solution? 

Many don’t realize that we have our own team of developers who not only build site, tweak sites and fix sites but our team customs codes for other corporations and consumers. I get asked many times throughout the week, “Who built your site?” and I tell then that we do it all in house. 

Now the good part. We are offering our services to the public. If you are a Registered Vendor on The Odd Market Site, you could pay as little as $195 to revamp an existing site. If you are not a currently Registered Vendor, rates start at only $245. To keep it simple we have a page dedicated to Web Development and a simple form to reach us. If we can help make your site better represent you, let us show you how reasonable and effortless it can be.
