Nestled in the south of Guelph in Canada, the Aberfoyle Antique Market is just an hour drive away from the bustling city of Toronto. This flea market has been home to regular traders and customers, many of them driving from Toronto, since the early 1960s. Hosting on a weekly basis more than 100 quality dealers selling antiques, collectibles, folk art, furniture, and more, the Aberfoyle Antique Market is cherished by both locals and visitors from all around the world.

Rummage through hundreds of eclectic stalls selling old-fashioned furniture, antiques, clothes and homeware. All whilst mingling with friends and munching on delicious locally-sourced food. This treasure trove for vintage enthusiasts is a fun-filled day out for the whole family. The Aberfoyle Antique Market is open for business bright and early every week, and also on selected Saturdays for a special Fall and Spring show.

This shopping haven receives only shining reviews, and quite rightly so. The Aberfoyle Antique Market boasts a great layout – customers don’t feel cooped up, or worse, come home feeling that they’ve missed out on an entire section. Wander through the spread-out stalls full of quaint pottery, old vinyls, ornate jewelry, and shabby chic furniture. There is something for everyone. The owners of the Aberfoyle Antique Market don’t believe in ripping people off either, entry is just $2.00 per adult and entry for children under 12 is free. Grab a Sunday season pass (which runs from April through October) for $15.00, or $25.00 for two. These can be purchased on the day at the admission gate of the Aberfoyle Antique Market.

After exploring the tons of stalls on offer, tuck into some hot, freshly cooked food in the restaurant. If it’s raining, there is enough space to sit inside away from the drizzle, or if it’s sunny you can dine alfresco out on the beautiful patio. There are also a variety of food stalls dotted around, selling ice cream, pretzels, homemade snacks and other deliciously tempting treats. The Aberfoyle Antique Market is cash-only, however there is an ATM onsite, so you don’t need to worry about withdrawing money beforehand. The views surrounding the Aberfoyle Antique Market are stunning, you can take a break from shopping and explore the countryside, or you could even bring a picnic with you for lunch.

There are a whole host of amenities on offer at the Aberfoyle Antique Market. These include a playground for children to run free in, a central washroom facility, and a decent number of portable loos (we know waiting in a never-ending portaloo queue is one of life’s hardest challenges). Complimentary parking is available on site, so there is no need to worry about getting back to your vehicle for a certain time. You can relax and spend your day hunting for the perfect bargain to take home.

For a memorable day out with family or friends, the Aberfoyle Antique Market is the perfect choice. Once you’re inside there is really no need to leave – you are provided with everything you need; quality food, brilliant facilities, live music and fine vintage treasures sold at an unbeatable value. The buzzing atmosphere that this antique Aladdin’s cave radiates is enough to make anyone want to stay for the entirety of the day.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
