New York City Flea Markets

When you think about shopping in New York City, what comes to mind? Big name department stores, Fifth Avenue and high-end boutiques, right? While perhaps not your first thought, something you definitely want to consider is the myriad of New York flea markets. Yep, that's right, flea markets! What will you find at a flea market? Anything and everything - - antiques, vintage clothing, accessories, artwork, jewelry, home decor, food - - the list is endless. While most flea markets are outdoors and therefore only open for the warmer/summer months, several are open year-round.

At the end of our flea market listing, we've given you information on the various Smorgasburg locations. Smorguasburg, created by the folks at Brooklyn Flea, is an all-food market featuring packaged and prepared foods, local food vendors and food-related supplies.
