Right in the heart of Southern California’s patio-living culture (nearly smack-dab between Los Angeles and Orange County), the Long Beach Flea Market, also known as the Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market, hosts a huge assortment of outdoor furniture, second-hand decor, antiques, garden ceramics, and statuary.

Since 1982, Lynn and Donald Moger have been managing the Long Beach Flea Market, which takes place on the third Sunday of the month at Veterans’ Stadium. And because they strictly enforce a 20-year rule, you can rest assured that the bounty of Fiestaware and 50s-era Pyrex bowls aren’t recent reproductions. Over 800 sellers spread out over 20 acres, and feature a huge selection of antiques, collectibles, and everything chic, cheap, unique, and vintage, all for sale at bargain prices. It is difficult to make a complete list of all the items you can buy at the Long Beach Flea Market. But we can mention for example furniture, estate & costume jewelry, 1920s-1990s vintage clothing, kitchenware, collectibles, Art, metalware, lighting, ephemera, textiles, advertising, musical Instruments, rugs, toys, architectural salvage, garden architectural, and so on.

It’s no wonder that as one of the premier flea markets on the west coast the Long Beach Antique Market makes regular appearances in documentaries and television series. Like recently in an episode of HGTV’s Flea Market Flip, in which two teams had to hustle through the Long Beach Flea Market, and transform their pieces afterwards, in an effort to rake in the big bucks. In addition to co-hosting ABC’s Good Morning America, Lara Spencer is herself a flea market fanatic can usually be found scouring flea markets Sunday mornings.

Lynn Moger is most proud of the creativity her show inspires, and she says that she’s seen “an old railroad cart purchased for use as a coffee table and vintage file cabinets converted into a bedroom dresser.” One of its best perks? “Real restrooms!” The Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market takes place once a month, rain or shine.

Because of its sunny beachside location and popular beer vendors, the Long Beach Flea Market has a decidedly street fair feel, and locals come by each week just to walk around and soak up the sea breeze.

  1. Smaller and more manageable than the Rose Bowl but still has stalls and stalls of incredible treasures.

  2. This is a very large Antique Flea market. The weather is always nice but bring a hat and cart. Lots of Smalls and Jewelry. Also some furniture pieces but Rose Bowl Swap meet has more. The nick knacks are more reasonable here then the Rose Bowl. Dealers are nicer here then Rose Bowl. Also admission is half of Rose Bowl. There is lots of parking, good bathrooms. Beer to buy and other treats!

  3. An all day affair. Tons of treasures to be found and bargained for. Lots of free parking. Lots of twists and turns you’d swear you must’ve missed a spot. There is an entrance fee, it costs more to be an early bird. but that’s when all the good stuff is out and a less crowded. They have food and beer (!!). Suggest bringing cash for haggling, and just overall ease of transactions.

    Also, words of advice for newbies: it’s one Sunday a month (the third), plan accordingly (vehicle space, cash, food..etc) and if you see something you absolutely cannot live without, buy it!! Guaranteed it’ll almost always be gone by the time you decide you want it.

  4. Glassware, kitchenware, handcrafted furniture of every style from every part of any century, but especially the middle of last. Dolls, toys, comics, lamps, crystal chandeliers, retro rings, cameo brooches, rhinestones, faux fur, coats, paintings, posters, sculptures and $1 baby succulents. This place is huge, $6 to enter unless they’re running a promo, and just one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday morning.

  5. One of the area's best!

    I love how well curated this market is! It’s easy to manage because of the layout and the vendors are very friendly. Go early as it gets hot!

  6. Sea breeze ?!

    Great flea market , but anyone expecting to enjoy the ” sea breeze ” will be very disappointed , it’s 5 miles from the beach

"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."
