Home Goods Near Home Plate

The new LA Flea Market debuts at Dodger Stadium.

Angelenos are seasoned pros at shopping for vintage home goods and clothes near a large stadium-like setting.

But it will still be a new and slightly surreal experience to walk around Dodger Stadium looking for the perfect mid-century lamp, even after years of strolling the world-famous Rose Bowl Flea Market.

Starting on Sunday, July 18, many flea fans will be doing just that, when the LA Flea Market debuts adjacent to the Elysian Park landmark.

Philip Dane is the organizer, and here is what has been organized: bevies of booths selling all sorts of flea-markety things (bevies=400-ish). Rick Dees serving as opening-day host. And yes -- yes! -- yes: food trucks. Food trucks feeding strolling lookie-loos.

General admission is $5 and starts at 9 a.m. As with other mondo flea markets, earlier hours mean higher admissions (but also getting a first crack at the finds).

If you can't make opening day, two dates are coming up for LA Flea: Sunday, August 29 and Sunday, September 26.
