high falls flea market

Sure, you can hit up the indoor flea markets year-round, but let’s face it: Some of those indoor markets, which shall remain nameless, resemble something more akin to a massive dollar store than a treasure trove of ephemera. We all know that the good stuff is outside on tables, basking in the spring time sun. And for flea marketeers and yard sale enthusiasts, this has been one very long winter. That’s all about to change as local outdoor markets start up again, and we have your guide to some local favorites. This is, by no means, and exhaustive list, so please let us know in the comments about your favorite flea markets. We’re always on the search for more.
