It is always satisfying when a vintage and antique market is held at a location that is in itself full of history. In Lancaster County Pennsylvania, Root’s Old Mill began as a feed mill for the Lancaster County Farmers Association, and farmers from all over Lancaster County would gather to buy and sell grain. Since 1925 the building was owned by a variety of companies until the flea market started in 1983. Known over the years to vendors and the public as The Old Mill Flea Market, the weekly flea market featured more than 150 regular vendors. In 2005, The Old Mill Flea Market changed owners once again and became Roots Old Mill Flea Market.

With more than 180 stalls set up every week, Roots Old Mill Flea Market has plenty for shoppers to choose from. It is open for business every Tuesday, which provides a nice mid-week alternative to the usual weekend markets. Official opening times are around 9 am, though keen collectors are usually around long before this, peering into the vendors’ goods as they take their time and set up. It is a great market for all things vintage and collectible, and this well-earned reputation means that shoppers descend on this market from both the local area and further afield in the hopes of snagging that special item.

Some of the vendors at Roots Old Mill Flea Market are regulars, having traded here for many years. However, there are always new faces behind some of the stalls, which of course means that every week there are always new treats to see. Collectible toys are available here in perfect condition, alongside furniture, coin collections, ornaments, furniture, tools, chinaware, artwork, clothing, and more.

As well as the vintage and antique treasures available at Roots Old Mill Flea Market, there are also plenty of farmer’s market stalls too. Delicious, freshly baked treats are for sale, providing the perfect snack for hungry bargain hunters as well as fantastic produce for weekly groceries. This is a one-stop-shop for all your shopping needs!

"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."
