Flea Markets!

May 13, 20242 min read

Attention shoppers! The weather is warmer, so what better time to scour the city's outdoor flea markets for that perfect shawl, pendant or vintage desk? NYC's flea markets are undoubtedly the best in the country.

Here are a few of the best:

Brooklyn Flea in the Dumbo Archway in Williamsburg, is probably the most popular flea market in the city. It's open from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturdays and Sunday through December. Clothing, records, art, jewelry, furniture...Brooklyn Flea has it all. Not to mention Smorgasburg, an incredible array of sweets and ethnic treats to keep you fueled for the hunt. There's also an outpost of Brooklyn Flea in Chelsea on 29th between Broadway and 6th. Chelsea hours are 8 to 5 every weekend year-round. Both are open rain or shine.

Head to NoLita Market in Soho for some budget-friendly finds. Check out silk-screened graphic tees, handmade jewelry, baby clothes, and more. Permanent vendors include Prince Street Sunglasses, K2 Pearls and Viva Zapata. It's located on Prince Street between Mott and Mulberry, and hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday from March through December, from 10AM to 7 PM, weather permitting.

Grand Bazaar on the Upper West Side is the place to go for vintage, jewelry, furniture, photography and more from over 100 local merchants. Artisanal food vendors are on hand if you get the munchies, and periodically the market hosts special events, like a Home Decor and Accessories Bazaar or a NYC Summer Vintage Bazaar. A bonus? Proceeds benefit four local public schools. The market is located on 77th and Columbus and is open year-round on Sundays from 10 AM to 5:30 PM.

The focus is on vintage and second-hand items at Ludlow Flea on the Lower East Side at 159 Ludlow St. (near Stanton). Hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 8 PM

Happy shopping, everyone!​
