America's Best Flea Markets

As American as spring break and summer barbecue, flea markets thrive in every state, from California’s enormous Rose Bowl to parking lots in Brooklyn, New York. Some markets are particularly renowned for their antiques: Collectors and designers look forward to the thrice-yearly Brimfield Antique Show in Springfield, MA, with the anticipation usually reserved for wedding dress sample sales. Markets like the Bay Area’s Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire and Long Beach, CA’s Antique and Collectibles Market mandate that everything for sale must be at least 20 years old, ensuring that there won’t be tube sock salesmen lurking among midcentury credenzas and vintage Fiestaware.—Rebecca Flint Marx
