    Great place to find nicknacks/decorations for an apartment, vintage jewelry & clothing. Vendors willing to bargain on price. Be sure to have cash to pay admission. Perfect place to spend a Sunday!

    Very cool place. We have been there twice and always found something cool at a good price. It is a very solid mix of upcycled furniture, clothing and other cool finds. Definitely worth going to.

    This unique antique market takes place at Fairfax high school every Sunday and offers antiques and one-of-a-kind clothes. There is a small $5 fee and get there early, 9am! Local bands play here too.

    Hipsters, creatives, and artists alike gather every weekend to find vintage treasures from unique art pieces and furniture to jewelry, candles, books and more! Go early as parking can fill up quickly.

    Huge flea market with a food area. Love the variety of knick knacks. $3 entrance fee for a good cause at least. (Not sure if this is the same as fairfax flea market)

    The Sunday Flea Market is like the best garage sale you will ever go to. You can find vintage pieces such as art accessories and clothing for dirt cheap.

    It may seem impossible, but you can probably find decent street parking if you try hard enough. There's a lot of junk, but still some decent finds scattered around. Bring your friends from out of town

    My go-to spot for antique house goods (look for trays, mirrors, and vases), vintage clothes, and costume jewelry. Bring cash, comfortable shoes, and don't forget to bargain!

    A good spot to while away a lazy Sunday afternoon. People watching is almost as good as looking for a bargain

    Come early to beat the crowd but come late to people watch. If you're looking for denim cutoff shorts, you will find more than enough here.

    Most of the the vendors overcharge for cheap reprints. The same goes for "vintage" furniture; they never know the type of wood & it's faux antiquing

    Extra parking in the back across from Clinton Street. Use it since parking could be gnarly around there.
