    Eastern Market is located inside the District at Pennsylvania ave. & 7th St. SE. Definitely go on a weekend, eat at the market lunch, buy some fresh seafood for later and pick up some vintage goods.

    Woodbury Antiques and Flea Market
    Woodbury, CT

    beautiful town and a beautiful ride up north from the city…especially during the fall season when the leaves change. highly recommended.

    St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is great for local food but if you’re looking for anything else try Kensington Market.

    Mother Red Cap’s is no more in Dublin, Ireland :(

    However Aisling has been doing a great job of reviving the Flea Market vibe there with her monthly events in the old co-op market hall.

    Michael,
    What was the criteria in picking the fleas on your map? Any way to somehow rate them, or at least the ones that you have attended?
