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......
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......
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......

I did a little picking, talked with some vendors I know, and was on my way.  The playground is......
Organizers of Uhuru Flea Market at Clark Park in West Philadelphia have just announced that their event has been postponed due to the possibility of rain. It has been rescheduled for tomorrow (Sunday, June 18). Anyone heading to any flea market on our lists should call or email them first since, though it is not......
I debated with myself for a few weeks before deciding to write a post about the RiverCity Festival 2017 because by the looks of it is far from what I consider a flea market. However, there is enough vagueness in its own description of itself to leave to interpretation the fact that some traditional flea......
May and now June so far, 2017, have been unforgiving to the Philadelphia flea market community. Rain seems to have threatened, dampened, put on hold, or totally eliminated flea markets on every one of the month’s weekends and now it denies a new, off-the-beaten-path, antique and vintage, weekday market its debut. Phila Flea Markets’s new......
Not a vendor market and not added to any of our lists but possibly of interest to at least some of Flea Market Philadelphia’s readers—and its right over the Wally Whitman. The Collingswood ‘Antiques on the Ave’ Antique Appraisal ...
Having long ago broken all the blueprint “rules” that so easily defined it for the first 20 years of its existence—special-event only, Saturdays only, May-June-September-October only, Center City-ish only, outdoors only, etc.—Phila Flea Markets (Philly Flea), for some time, has been looking to add to its outside-the-box creations by starting a weekday antique and vintage......
