Flea Market Philadelphia is far from Ebay or OfferUp but on this website’s Facebook page, someone has sent a message to the inbox asking if anyone has a PlayStation 3 for sale. I figure with all the vendors who come across this site at any given time how hard could it be to find one......
I had Monumental Baptist Church’s Annual Flea Market listed on the site for several weeks but those running it obviously fully understand the meaning and value of a free advertisement. True, they were already getting free advertisement but with a scrawny listing with limited information. Now, since they filled out our List Your Market form,......
Note to self: DO NOT begin post by explaining how far Phila Flea Markets has come from original formula of Saturday-only markets in May, June, September, and October. No waxing philosophical about how much they’ve “broken the mold” or have gone “outside the box.” And, don’t even think about invoking numerology for “those interested.” I’m sure......
For the most part, year-in and year-out, July is an uneventful special-event flea market month in and around the city of Philadelphia. Organizers of those types of markets tend to avoid July and August because they are normally too hot and with August—especially the first three weeks—it has the added disadvantage of being the most......
Happy 4th—I need a fifth! (A handwritten sign I remember seeing posted many years ago in the window of a toll booth on the Walt Whitman Bridge.)  Those who have had run-ins with the law in the past know that, to parole officers and halfway house headmasters, Fourth of July is considered a drinking holiday......
Yesterday, I added two flea markets to Flea Market Philadelphia’s listings. One is in Philadelphia’s Port Richmond section and the other is just outside the city. Both were added to the year-round listings since they take place every week. Free Church Market The Free Church of St. John Flea Market started a few months ago......
In my last post I report that DiSilvestro Playground Craft & Flea Market in South Philadelphia will, in the future, take place “twice a month.” This is wrong; it will actually run every two months and the mistake has nothing to do with anyone misspeaking or another having not fully listened. The mistake actually has......
Due to expected rain, DiSilvestro Playground at 15th & Morris Streets in South Philadelphia has moved its first craft and flea market from today (Saturday, June 24th) to tomorrow, Sunday, June 25th. I’ve changed its listing here on Flea Market Philadelphia where all contact information is included. Pickers’ Paradise? Judging by the area, the size......
Let’s face it, flea markets are not the most manly things out there. While a lot of real men like or even love flea markets, most do not brag about their passion at the corner bar while watching an Eagles game. Shows like Pawn Stars and American Pickers have helped a bit but, as we......
I just left Capitolo Playground and though it was iffy when I first arrived, by the time I left a little over an hour later, most vendors had decided to unload and organizers started collecting rents. I did a little picking, talked with some vendors I know, and was on my way.  The playground is......
