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......
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......
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......
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......
According to a Craigslist ad, a new flea market is opening in July of this year and will take place in Northeast Philadelphia every Saturday. From reading the very thorough and well-written ad I know what hours the flea market will run, how much the spaces cost, the size of the various spaces offered, the......

Presented by Phila Flea Markets (“Philly Flea”). 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Phila Flea Markets featured post A heads-up to shoppers of JSPFM: Not too long ago, Jefferson Square Park in South Philadelphia was shabby and dangerous; what locals used to call a......
Last week a circumstance forced me to have to visit practically every page and post on this website in order to manually change a few things. When I reached the page “Philadelphia” under “Year-Round Markets,” I noticed the third entry on that page is “Punk Rock Flea Market Harbor Park.” Seeing this immediately made me......
Although the threat of rain hovers over our heads today (literally and figuratively), the really heavy stuff isn’t due until tomorrow and yesterday I reported, in two posts, some of its pre-ramifications. However, it is Mother’s Day weekend and it looks like at least part, if not most, of one-half of a two-day fair that includes......
This post was revised on May 6, 2017. This weekend, the first in May, used to be the one every flea marketer in the city waited for before Phila Flea Markets started running flea markets in April. “The Prison” was considered opening day for the outdoor season in the area—which back then was the only......
