Smorgasburg, the popular food flea market, never fails to impress with its wide variety of unique vendors and a perfect view of the Manhattan skyline. With foods ranging from grilled cheese sandwiches from Milk Truck to macarons from Vendome, Smorgasburg offers great options for anyone. It is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (East River State Park in Williamsburg on Saturdays; Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sundays)

The Antiques Garage 

For the shopper with a larger budget, the Antiques Garage is a flea market for high-quality vintage items. Hosted in a parking garage, this flea market is two floors high with over 100 vendors. The Antiques Garage is popular, albeit expensive. It is very crowded around midday so it is best to come in the morning or later in the day. Despite the prices, the Antiques Garage is still an exciting location to explore. (112 W. 25th St.)

The Williamsburg Flea

Re-opening May 4, the Williamsburg Flea Market will be open on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with 150 vendors selling odd trinkets as well as good food. Spending the day at the Williamsburg Flea will guarantee some great skyline views. (50 Kent Ave.)

Green Flea 

Open every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Green Flea  Market is located on the Upper West Side. The Green Flea also has an indoor market in the same location, so you will not have to worry about rain ruining your plans. To accompany the items on sale, Green Flea is also famous for their food. It is next to a farmer’s market in case you need a break from the bustling flea market. (Columbus Avenue between West 76th and 77th streets)

Hell’s Kitchen Flea 

Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market attracts a wide array of visitors ranging from artists to tourists all looking through the different antiques, vintage clothing and home décor. Open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every  Saturday and Sunday throughout the year, Hell’s Kitchen Flea is a must-see local event. (West 39th Street between Ninth and 10th avenues)
