Jake’s Flea Market

Jacob “Jake” Treichler‘s dream started back in 1980 with few vendors selling their wares out along Route 100 and these were the humble beginnings of the now long-established Jake’s Flea Market. Jake became known for his infectious laugh, and he also had in him that rare ability to make everyone that he interacted with feel valued and special. It seemed to be a winning combination of these two things that made vendors keep on coming back, and lead to this flea continuing its success through the years. Now, no one in the local area can imagine a weekend without this flea taking place!

Soon after it was established, Jake’s Flea Market became the place to be at the weekends to find a whole range of curios, collectibles, and second-hand wonders. Of course, vendors were keen to do business, but this market is as much about creating a place where neighbors and friends can meet as it is about doing rip-roaring trade. That is not to say that the organizers do not take care with goods up for grabs here – vendors are chosen in order to provide a wide range of items for shoppers to look through, and a nice chance of snagging a collectible for those in the know when it comes to antique and vintage treasures.

Jake’s Flea Market offers a little bit of everything to shoppers. Pen knives are for sale alongside musical instruments, old telephones, vintage vehicles, train sets and other collectible toys, bicycles, advertising memorabilia, records, and record players, and much, much more.

Many improvements have been made to Jake’s Flea Market over the years, not only because it has continuously grown in size year after year. In 2007 a covered pavilion was added to the site, and a further pavilion was erected in 2015, meaning that the market can be easily enjoyed come rain or shine. Bathroom facilities were also added, and there is always a food truck or two dotted around so families can really make the most of market days.

"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."
