What started 70 years ago as a family-owned and -operated livestock and produce auction has evolved into a 150,000-square-foot indoor market and weekend outdoor multi-family flea and yard sale. On Fridays through Sundays, browse the 700 outdoor vendors’ fruits and vegetables, artisanal jewelry and crafts, not to mention the large assortment of secondhand clothes, furniture and collectables. Located near Pennsylvania’s Amish Country, the indoor area has buttery Amish baked goods, fresh meats and produce along with numerous other restaurant and food vendor options, perfect for those left hungry from all the good deals. 2 hrs by car
Sure, there are lots of flea markets in NYC, but one thing the Big Apple doesn’t have is space to spread out all the goods. For that kind of flea market, NJ is where it’s at. You can grab vintage clothes, fresh produce from farmers markets and throwback video games as you snack on carnival food at these fleas, all located less than two hours away. See, New Jersey isn’t all that bad.
