It’s always fun to learn about where the locals shop and eat, especially as a traveler but also for non-visitors. While markets in the USA are not as common or popular as they might be in Asia or Europe, there are still quite a few that give shoppers a chance to find the best. Here are some of the top markets in the US.

Brooklyn Flea Market – Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Flea captures the hipster vibe of this New York borough with over 100 vendors selling one of a kind items such as furniture, vintage rugs, and even some rare finds. There are local craft vendors with clothing, jewelry, accessories and many artisanal goods as well. The food stalls here are not to be missed either, with the market usually having over 25 food vendors. It makes for a good treasure hunt, but is also a foodie haunt!
