Whether you’re looking to avoid the hot sun or snowy sidewalks, New York City always provides the perfect weekend activity: flea markets. With an abundance of indoor and outdoor markets year-round, there is certainly no lack of variety. Our list is just a scratch on the surface of the multitude of flea markets New York City has to offer, from vintage clothing to piles of records and mouth-watering food.
Straying from vintage clothing and antiques, Smorgasburg is a market for all the foodies out there. Operated by Brooklyn Flea, Smorgasburg opens in the summer on Saturdays at East River State Park and on Sundays at Brooklyn Bridge Park, with both locations offering stunning scenic views. When you can’t wait for the summer, a small selection of vendors have taken up shop at Brooklyn Flea’s indoor winter market. With nearly 100 food vendors from all around New York City, this market has anything your taste buds could desire with artisanal, handmade food, from beef brisket to falafel to freshly-squeezed watermelon juice. This market is informal and relaxed and you can enjoy your food while walking around and scoping out your next meal.
