  • Things to do
  • Mid-Beach

This bustling vintage market enters its 32nd season on South Beach's famed Lincoln Road. Approximately every other Sunday from October 8 through May 14 (check their calendar for exact dates), 125 vendors convene along the promenade to showcase their wares and barter with discerning shoppers. Find everything from mid-century furniture to Art Deco decor and more. The long-running weekend social presents a solid mix of 19th and 20th-century memorabilia and unique collectibles. While you're there, stock up on locally grown produce, fresh flowers and artisanal goods from the Lincoln Road Farmer's market, which occurs every Sunday from 9am to 6pm.

2. Little River Flea

The vibe at Little River Flea is curated and community-driven, with a focus on small businesses and sustainability. Find all sorts of secondhand and vintage items, from perfectly worn-in graphic tees to vinyl records and homewares. There’s also a neat selection of handmade items and plants for sale, and usually yummy snacks and cocktails, depending on where they're popping up (usually Higher Ground or ZeyZey). Check Instagram for dates and details. 


3. Magic City Flea

Magic City Flea is an eclectic roving flea market that pops up everywhere from Wynwood to Brickell. Typically, the vendors here are young, edgy and committed to sourcing the most unique and sustainable vintage pieces. You’ll also find independent screen printers, unique plant purveyors, healing crystals connoisseurs, jewelry designers, food, drinks and more. Check Instagram for dates and details.

It’s an impressive operation with enough shopping, eating, drinking and live entertainment to take up a few good hours of your day. 3080 Sheridan St, Hollywood

  • Movie theaters

The Swap Shop is a weird, random and absolutely massive indoor-outdoor market in Broward County. Here, you’ll find just about everything, including a 14-screen drive-in movie theater, a tiny amusement park and so much more. It’s a bit of a drive from Miami, but there’s really no other market that embodies the weirdness of South Florida as accurately as the Swap Shop. 3291 W Sunrise Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

6. Redland Market Village

At Homestead’s best flea market, you can haggle your way into some sweet deals and also eat delicious, fresh Mexican food from local vendors. You can find everything here: pets, shoes, plants, fish, jewelry, fishing supplies, homewares and produce. A visit to the Latin-American-flavored food court at Redland Market Village is a must, too. It’ll help give you the strength to tackle this 27-acre market. 24420 S Dixie Hwy

You’ll most certainly find something funky to add to your closet, too. 2591 NW 36th St

8. Opa Locka Indoor Flea Market

The Opa Locka Indoor Flea Market is a massive flea market that’s open daily from 9am to 6pm.
