The Flea Story
The Troy Flea was started in 2015 by Jessica McEnaney of Dang That’s Cherry and opened to immediate success, earning the Metroland's "Best Flea Market" in its 2015 "Best Of" issue. In 2016 the Flea was taken over by Kristin Jackson. Jackson loved the vibe of the Flea as was sad to see it close as McEnaney moved from Troy so she took it over and has enjoyed seeing the flea grow.
Jackson has lived in Troy for 6 of the last 8 years and works and lives in the city. Her experience assisting with music festivals and her love of Troy have made for a great match up.
“I love this city, I love the people, the restaurants and the markets. I want to bring people to Troy and we will keep the focus on fun, kitschy, beautiful, eclectic and weird things.
You can make a Sunday out of it...you start with Yoga in the park, then browse the flea before brunch."
