613flea heads to Lansdowne this weekend.

Looking for a pair of vintage eye glasses to top your hipster look?

How about a retro bike to go along with your look and even a hit record vinyl wall clock?

You’ll find everything you need and more this weekend at 613 Flea at Lansdowne in the Glebe.

The event is basically a flea market, but with more focus on creative designers, artists and artisans who will showcase their products in a flea market environment. Think specialty bottled beverages, antique jewelry, artisan soaps and refinished furniture. There will be vintage toys, African clothing and everything else you would imagine to find at any flea market.

The free, non-profit market place runs its first event this Saturday, September 12 at the Aberdeen Square from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The market returns to the Glebe September 19 and two more dates in October. Click here for more information or to become a vendor.

We know it’s back to school, but the Glebe Neighbourhoods Activities Group wants to start the school year with a bang. They are bringing “the best youth dances in the city” back to the Glebe Community Centre this Friday night. Students in Grade 5-8 can dance the night away, while meeting new friends or catching up with old ones. The dance runs from 7-10 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.

But if you’re looking to get out into the Glebe before Saturday, there is loads of activities going on in your backyard, as usual.

With temperatures expected to stay above 20C all week, the new skateboard park and water plaza will get tons of use as we inch closer and closer to fall.

Those looking to pick up some fall harvest can do so at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market, which runs every Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Looking to get some exercise on your lunch break? Momentum Fridays get moving every week at Lansdowne Park with free creative dance, stretching and yoga every Friday at noon.

And if you’re a soccer fan, you’ve probably already got your tickets to Saturday’s Fury FC game vs. The Fort Lauderdale Strikers at 3 p.m. at TD Place. The Fury are in first place overall with just nine games left in the season. Come cheer on Ottawa’s premiere soccer squad. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. Click here for tickets.

There’s always something happening in the Glebe.
