America’s Best Flea Markets

Slide 2 of 21

Kane County Flea Market, St. Charles, IL

Located an hour outside of Chicago, this monthly flea market pops up from March through December. It abounds with antique furniture, vintage glassware, custom signs, vinyl albums, old coins and period fashions. Notable vendors include Rhubarb Reign, a purveyor of repurposed antiques; Maria Brazas, who sells vintage pottery; and Gail Harmaans, a market stalwart who sells a wide variety of antiques ranging from Depression glass to furniture. There’s also no shortage of food, from burgers and caramel apples to ice cream and, during the late summer and early fall, corn on the cob.
