Car Bazaar: Parking Garage Flea Market is a Pittsburgh twist on the beloved British car boot sale tradition. Taking over multiple floors of a parking garage, this socially-distanced market features makers, artists, retailers, and sellers offering vintage, second-hand, or recycled items, all selling goods from their car’s “boot” or trunk. Stroll and browse in a festive atmosphere with live music along with hot food and craft cocktails provided by Downtown restaurant partners.
