    Back in November, the long-abandoned Strawbridge & Clothier building at 801 Market St. housed the Franklin Flea, a winter-themed market featuring local vendors offering Philadelphians a variety of things from antique furniture to vintage clothes.

    Now, after a six-week run that ended in December last year, the market is back.

    Starting on April 19, Franklin Flea will be located across from the Strawbridge’s building at the parking lot on the corner of 8th and Market streets — the site of the proposed Market8 casino.

    Mark Vevle, founder of the Franklin Flea, plans to have a “seamless run” through October.
    Locations for the market after its six-week run on May 24 (and starting on May 31) are yet to be determined and announced. Read more about this story on
