Nestled in the Hampton Roads area of Smithfield, Virginia, the Smithfield Vintage Market take visitors back in time and celebrate the charm and allure of all things old and vintage. This quaint town is home to two distinct market events that attract vintage enthusiasts from near and far.
The first is the highly anticipated Spring Vintage Market, held once a year in the neighbouring town of Windsor, Virginia. This market is a delightful experience for vintage lovers, with more than 100 vendors offering a wide range of vintage, antique and repurposed items. From French country decor to mid-century modern treasures, kitschy collectibles to retro gems, every throwback style can be found in one central location. The Spring Vintage Market takes place over a single weekend in May at the Isle of Wight County Fairgrounds. It also sets up shop on Main Street in Smithfield for another weekend in September, with plenty of opportunities for vintage shopping throughout the year. Please note that there is a small admission charge to the Spring Vintage Market.
In addition to the annual extravaganza, Smithfield hosts monthly 'picker' markets that offer a more intimate vintage shopping experience. These charming markets feature approximately 15 vendors spread over three blocks in the historic downtown area of Smithfield, Virginia. Stepping into this picturesque setting, visitors are immersed in the town's rich history, with over 70 buildings dating back to the Colonial, Federal and Victorian eras. The downtown area itself serves as an idyllic backdrop as shoppers browse the market in search of hidden treasures from days gone by. In addition to vintage items, the monthly Picker Markets feature an assortment of tempting food trucks, local baked goods and handcrafted items, ensuring that no one leaves empty-handed.
What sets the Smithfield Vintage Market apart is their commitment to authenticity. Both the Spring Vintage Market and the monthly Picker Markets feature only vendors selling goods made before 1980, ensuring that shoppers are truly immersed in the vintage experience.

The Spring Vintage Market, for example, has grown from a few hours to two days since its inception.
