Good flea markets?

empty frame against wallKatie asks via Twitter:

[D]o you guys or your readers have any suggestions on area flea markets? One time or weekly/monthly ones? Thx!

We get the feeling there are a handful around this region -- especially if you're willing to drive a bit.

Got a suggestion for Katie? Please share! And non-redeemable bonus points for a sentence or two about why that market is good, or a tip for visiting it.


There's one in New Lebanon

It's a bit of a drive from here (~90 minutes) but the Stormville Flea Market is awesome!!! It's huge and they've got a wide variety of stuff available, good food, ample parking, etc.

I definitely second Val on the stormville flea market it ishuge and fantastic. Also relatively close to storm king art center so it's a great day trip.

I have not been, but I know there is a flea market down on 9W in Ravena, and I also plan on checking out the brimfield flea market this year.

This weekend (and also in August) is an antiques/flea market at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Schagticoke.

I noticed a sign for a flea market on May 10 next to Guptill's on Rt 9 in Latham. I've never been to previous ones, but when I've driven by they look very crowded.

The Washington County Fairground is located in Easton.

There's the Mower's Saturday Market in Woodstock, this year they're opening May 17... If memory serves, last year they were also open on Sundays:

The antiques fair mentioned above is also amazing and huge!

Thank you all so much for your suggestions! Very much appreciated.

Good Flea Market Sat/Sun in Wilmington VT, at intersection of routes 9 & 100. 1hr 20mins from Latham, 30 mins east of Bennington. Was there last weekend--a lot of antiques, new/used items, tools, plants, syrup & other foods. Only one vendor selling Chinese junk. Good food/ice cream nearby at Wahoo's (Salmon Burger!)

I went to polish school, I grew up eating polish food, I even help cook polish food at the biannual polish dinner/ dances and even dressed up like a polish soldier for parades, so l guess I'm polish AND there is nothing better than going to Muza's for the food I grew up that is just as good as moms.
