Encinitas Friends of the Arts (EFA) sponsors and produces the Encinitas Flea Market. This annual event is an ongoing community fundraiser that started in July of 2017. Funds raised go to support cultural events such as Dia de los Muertos, public art, and mariachi band. Booths rented by artists will not only be used to show their art, but also to offer up-cycled and vintage arts and crafts and decorative objects. One of a kind gifts are the order of the day at the Encinitas Flea Market, where keepsakes and new treasures are abundant.
