Who Is It For?

For those who like their quirk. The Lil Flea is Mumbai’s most chic flea market – started off by Alankar Jain and Priyanka Punjabi in 2014 to engage with the communities of fashion, food, music and even NGOs.

The Lil Flea in its entirety is personally curated by Priyanka, who is 100 per cent involved in the process of who gets to set the stall up to how it can be set up – with Alankar handling all the financial and business aspect of it. Stalls of designers, with community corners like the book exchange and poetry exchange centres to gaming centres- they offer it all.

Why Should I Go?

At least over 250 brands ranging from quirky stationery to funky apparel to delicious food pop-ups by local home chefs and cafes will be featured at this event. Full of bright decor and colourful buntings – Lil Flea will feature brands like Radio Rani {for kitchy prints and bold sarees}, Krithaa {known for recycled handmade rustic jewellery}, Statement {embroidered, aztec funky bags}, The Chalk Co {quirky stationary}, The Gentleman’s Community {for vintage everything} here and so many more brands. In fact, last year, even Bandra-based Sky Goodies {read more here} – have all started off from the Lil Flea’s exhibition.

Food pop-ups like Pack-A-Pav, Desi Deli, Mystery box have also put up their stalls here – with desserts and ice cream pop-ups like Where’s My Cone {ice cream filled between two cookies}.

Anything Else?

A three day-long festival of food, music and shopping – need you ask? This happy souk is all about affordability to brands that you want to splurge on, apart from watching live bands perform and adding to the ambience of this market. Bands like Mad Boy Mink, The Raghu Dixit Project have all been a part of this, and we can only expect bigger things from the October edition.

Mark your calendars and head to Bandra to the Lil Flea – and you may catch the LBB crew hogging near the food stalls.
