The year-round Eastern Market Flea Market has been a fixture in Washington DC since the early 80s. In its early days, the fact that exhibitors came from five different states was a point of pride. Now there are exhibitors from five different continents and the market has established itself as one of the most diverse in the US. The market's presence has helped revitalize the area of town where it is located, and now it is the place to be on weekends!
During the winter months, the Eastern Market Flea Market has a slightly smaller selection. Usually sometime in March of each year, the space allotted to the market increases and many of the hibernating vendors begin showing their wares each weekend. Many of the vendors have been at the market for many years, although there are often new stalls popping up, ready to be browsed. The market has a warm, community-oriented atmosphere, and the familiarity of the vendors with each other adds to the friendliness of the whole event.
The Flea Market at Eastern Market complements the existing Arts and Farmers Market. Forty-five additional spaces are available for flea market vendors. The focus is on antiques and art, and the quality of the goods for sale is guaranteed. Of course, collectors will want to make a beeline for the antique and vintage booths, but for many other shoppers, the combination of the flea market and the farmers' market makes for a great shopping experience!
There is always a wonderful variety of antique and vintage items to be found at the Eastern Market flea market. Visitors can expect to find vintage clothing, postcards, artwork, collectible toys, silverware, china, small furniture, glassware, ornaments, cameras, vinyl records, curiosities, and more. It is the perfect place to shop no matter what your budget. You will not leave empty-handed.
