The Anderson School, 100 W 77th S

One of the most charming flea markets in NYC is the Greenflea Market. It’s held in the playground of The Anderson School, a K-8 elementary school, on Sundays all year round.

It’s open rain or shine, meaning you might find fewer crowds if you’re willing to go on a wet day. While it isn’t the largest market, it usually has a nice selection of items.

These often include antiques, home décor, collectibles, vintage items, clothing, jewelry, accessories, global goods, and food. Are you looking for a specific sort of item or just want to see what surprises you might uncover?

This is a great little market to do some exploring. The vendors also change frequently, including the number of them. On some days, they add extra booths outside the playground when they have too many to fit inside it.

Also, all proceeds go directly into helping the public schools in the area. So shopping here, you’ll be doing a good deed as well!

Flea Market at 14th Street

414 E 14th St

Another of the hidden gems of the flea markets in NYC is the one held at 14th Street each weekend. Located between 1st Ave and Ave A near the Church of Immaculate Conception, this flea market doesn’t have a name.

But it makes up for it, as well as its modest size, with the unique finds you might stumble upon. This is a particularly great market for home décor, vintage clothes, and artwork.

And are you possibly looking for some old record albums or CDs to fill in holes in your music collection? You can often find some classics and rarities here as well! They have great prices and a great selection, and are open year round so don’t miss it!

Grand Bazaar is one of the largest and oldest flea markets in NYC. It runs every Sunday year round, featuring more than one hundred local vendors each week.

You’ll find the vast open air space filled with all sorts of merchants. These include furniture designers, jewelers, and photographers selling their latest work, as well as antiques, vintage items, collectibles, and more.

Are you looking for bell bottoms for a 1970s theme party or crystals for your New Age practices? You might just find them here! Due to COVID protocols, the market is currently being held only outside.

When things fully return to normal, however, the Grand Bazaar has indoor space as well. This is particularly convenient for when it’s wet or cold, as the market runs in all weather!

Grand Bazaar is also known for its fun themed events as well as its wide variety of food carts. We can particularly recommend the Mexican elotes stand if it happens to be there when you visit!

159 Ludlow Street

One of the most recent of the flea markets in NYC, Ludlow Flea’s a small, lovely addition to the roster. And small is actually part of their brand. They started up specifically to encourage people in their community to shop from small local companies rather than mega corporations.

At this charming little market, you’ll find unique items from fully independent vendors from the area. Most of them are selling vintage and second-hand merchandise, the focus at this market being on clothing.

Are you going to a costume party? Or do your personal style range towards the vintage and unusual? Either way, you’re sure to find something perfect here. And they’re open Friday through Sunday all year long!

The third Artists & Fleas location on our list of the best flea markets in NYC is the one in Chelsea Market. It’s a particularly great place for flea market fans as it’s open 7 days a week all year round.

For those who don’t know, Chelsea Market is also a fully indoor venue, so weather is never an issue. There are also many other retail and food options within Chelsea Market itself.

So after checking out Artists & Fleas, there’s still plenty more to explore there. The Artists & Fleas there, however, offers an amazing variety of things on its own. Every day, you’ll find over thirty designers selling their merchandise.

The Paper Box, 17 Meadow Street, Brooklyn

Rock n’ Shop may be the most unique out of all of the flea markets in NYC. It has personality all its own. Largely music focused, it’s actually located within one of the largest music venues in Bushwick.

Furthermore, it’s run by a local rock band called The Bushwick Hotel, every Sunday throughout the entire year. You’d be hard pressed to find a more unusual or fun flea market in NYC or anywhere else.

They describe it as a shopping, culinary, and musical entertainment experience. And that’s exactly what it is. You can spend the entire afternoon there eating delicious food, browsing all of the various artisan booths, and enjoying free live music and, on some occasions, other performances such as comedy shows. Think of it as an edgy indoor street fair.

Merchandise on sale includes Natalia Cortes’ rock n’ roll apparel, vinyl records, Brooklyn Smith’s handmade jewelry and more. You can even get a tattoo or haircut while you’re there. A truly one of a kind experience.

5-25 46th Avenue, Long Island City, Queens

Many think of the Long Island City + Astoria Flea & Food as the Queens counterpart to Brooklyn Flea. They are outdoor markets. Both are also largely focused on antiques and vintage objects and fashions.

Both provide breathtaking, up-close views of Manhattan’s iconic skyline. Aesthetically, they’re two of the most beautiful flea markets in NYC.

Come to this flea market for all of the sorts of fashions, home décor, curiosities, and more you’d hope to find. And while you’re here, relax at the flea market’s beer and wine garden that exclusively serve Queens-brewed drinks.

There’s also plenty of food, including delicious barbecue and desserts such as A Lil’ Bit of Fun’s funnel cake. We also highly recommend the “gramwich”, an ice cream sandwich in between two graham crackers on a hot summer day!

The LIC + Astoria Flea & Food runs on weekends from April through October every year.

Chelsea Flea Market

W 25th St, between Broadway and Sixth Ave

Located by the Cathedral of St Savra, Chelsea Flea is another of our favorites of the flea markets in NYC. It used to be called The Antiques Garage and antiques still remains it focus. So if historic memorabilia and collectibles are what you’re after, this is the flea market for you.

This outdoor flea market is open on weekends all year round. It also costs $1 to visit but that’s more than made up for by all the treasures within. You can spend a full day combing through the vintage photographs, costume jewelry, records, and art. And there’s plenty of furniture and other various antique pieces to peruse as well.

Amongst its more unusual pieces, you will also find vendors selling African masks that have been handcrafted, and musical instruments. Each week, there are more than 130 sellers. Also check out the delicious snack options at the Smorgasburg food stalls. You can also get a drink at the flea market’s bar, which is fully stocked.

Be sure to bring cash, however, as not all of the vendors are able to take electronic payments or credit cards!
