Brooklyn Flea

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 even spot a celeb or two.

Chelsea Flea 

The Chelsea Flea (West 25th between Broadway/6th Avenue) includes over 50 vintage and antique vendors selling collectibles, ephemera, and decorative arts, plus art deco and midcentury modern furnishings. The market is open every Saturday and Sunday year-round (weather permitting) and admission is free.

Grand Bazaar NYC

Every Sunday, the Grand Bazaar NYC market provides a selection of independent antique and vintage dealers, artists, designers, and craft-makers. The market also boasts a selection of food trucks and vendors, so shoppers are advised to bring their appetites. Even better? A portion of the profits benefit four Upper West Side public schools.
