This popular flea and antique market used to take place at St. Lawrence Market north, however, it has recently moved address and all of their wondrous vintage wares and tears can be found at The Esplanade in Toronto, Ontario. Sunday Antique Market was originally established at St Lawrence Market in 1890.
Customers come back time and time again for a fantastic display of vintage goods and retro memorabilia. Expect to find unique and eccentric items, such as vintage fantasy card holders, arty postcards, typewriters, floral curtains, mid-century furniture, secondhand garments, and vintage cameras such as Plaubel Makina W67 and Kiev 88.
Vendors at Sunday Antique Market are friendly and very happy to chat away with customers about all of their items and knowledge about antiques and vintage products. If you have any questions or are looking for something particular, then don’t be shy or hold back – put yourself out there! Merchants are also willing to negotiate the prices of their stock, in fact, they expect most people to offer them an alternative to their original asking price.
This market can get quite crowded and isn’t particularly big in comparison to other flea markets in Ontario. Also, there is no admission fee – which can attract a lot of people who come along just as something to do with their Sunday afternoon. Overall, Sunday Antique Market is definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for a wide selection of bric a brac and eclectic vintage treasures.
