America’s Best Flea Markets

Slide 4 of 21

Brooklyn Flea, Brooklyn, NY

The market that birthed the neo-hipster-flea-market trend, the Flea sells a little bit of everything, from Pendleton blankets and ’70s-era Schwinns to artisanal jams and vintage typewriters. Held every weekend from April through November, the market also features some great deals: One of the best can be found at Classic Specs, which sells vintage frames, with new prescription lenses included, for $89. Celebrated food vendors draw their own regulars: Choncho’s Tacos, People’s Pops (for seasonal fruit popsicles like blueberry-rosewater) and Pizza Moto (which hauls in a mobile brick oven) are favorites.
