The Beacon Flea Market takes place in the heart of Beacon, New York, in the USA. The city enjoys a scenic location on the Hudson River and the forested, hilly surroundings are visible from most spots. When shopping at the flea, you can look up and take in the fabulous surroundings while taking a break from bargain hunting! It is a lovely area to spend a weekend, topped off by the flea market that is a regular weekend occurrence.

Most Sundays see the city of Beacon come alive with the many vendors that make up the Beacon Flea Market. However, it is described as a ‘fair weather flea’, which is exactly what it sounds like. Therefore, it is worth keeping up with their social media or newsletters to be sure that it is taking place on any given weekend. When the weather is perfect (dry, not too hot and not too cold), visitors can expect to find a crowded, bustling market with many vendors lining the streets. There are always a fair few stallholders that have their regular stands on a weekly basis, though each flea also sees plenty of new vendors taking part. Therefore, variety is guaranteed.

The pricing of the items at the Beacon Flea Market is always found to be fair. Most of the vendors trade with cash only too, so of course negotiations are possible. There is usually a nice mixture of those in the business and those who have cleared out a house or basement and put all the wares on display. Shoppers here can expect to find vintage clothing, vintage toys, kitchenware, books, jewelry (some vintage, some handcrafted), prints, artwork, advertising memorabilia, furniture, vintage sporting equipment, books, chinaware, decorative items, and more.

The atmosphere at the Beacon Flea Market is always friendly and jovial, and vendors are more than happy to pass on their knowledge regarding the vintage and antique treasures on their tables.

"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."
