The Design Lover's Guide To Flea Markets in New York
Scouring shelves and finding a truly one-of-a-kind hidden treasure is the dream of any vintage lover. It’s also the key that most design pros suggest to creating an eclectic and layered home. (Bonus points for finding these treasures during your travels!)
Staying with us in NoMad or Soho? You’re in luck. New York City has a plethora of vintage bazaars where you can spend hours getting lost in the maze of decorative wares and antiques. For flea-goers looking for the best treasure hunting spots we’re sharing our favorite NYC flea markets to hit up.
Located in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Flea market is made up of over 75 vendors situated in a picturesque setting under the Manhattan Bridge. In addition to the assortment of goods, there are plenty of food trucks for snacking and if you’re lucky you may spot a celeb or two.
Chelsea + Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market
Annex Markets manages two flea markets in different neighborhoods. The Chelsea Market (W. 25th between Broadway/6th Ave.) includes over 135 vendors selling antiques, collectibles, ephemera, decorative arts, art deco and midcentury modern furnishings. Meanwhile, the Hell’s Kitchen Market (W. 29th at 9th Ave.) leans more towards fashion with vintage clothing, jewelry, and estate items. So pick your poison. The good news? Both are open every weekend (weather permitting) with just a $1 entry fee.
Grand Bazaar NYC
Every Sunday, the Grand Bazaar NYC market provides a selection of independent antique and vintage dealers, artists, designers and craft-makers. Even better? A portion of the profits benefit four Upper West Side public schools. For extra fun, be sure to check out the events calendar for can’t-miss themed flea markets in the NYC area.
