8 Amazing Flea Markets In Buffalo You Absolutely Have To Visit
If you get excited for the start of garage sale season, you’re not alone! But did you know that you don’t necessarily have to wait until spring to find your hidden treasures in Buffalo? We have several flea markets with great finds just waiting for you to discover them! Here is a quick list of our top eight:
1. Buffalo Flea Fair (2495 Main Street)
The verdict is still out on whether or not this flea market will be opening up this summer, but we're keeping our fingers crossed! The Buffalo Flea Fair typically sets up shop at the Tri-Main Complex, with vendors selling antiques, food, and handmade goods by local artisans.
2. Antique World and Flea Market (11111 Main Street, Clarence)
A stroll through the Clarence flea market feels a bit like hitting the jackpot in vintage finds. This is a great place to send a weekend morning looking for treasures, with rows and rows of vendors set up both indoors and out for perusing!
3. Clinton-Bailey Farmers Market (1443 Clinton Street)
This flea market is centered mainly around fresh grown local produce and foods, as well as flowers, herbs and shrubs, and more! The market is held every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday morning as early as 4:00 AM.
4. Flea Market at the East Aurora Auction & Expo Center (11167 Big Tree Road, East Aurora)
The East Aurora flea market is held in an 180,000 square foot indoor/outdoor facility just south of Buffalo. Spend the day browsing through farm-fresh produce, antiques, furniture, and more – then take some time to explore all that East Aurora has to offer!
5. Gentner Commission Market (341 W. Main Street, Springville)
Better known as "The Springville Auction," this auction/flea market combo is a big part of Springville's identity. Although it closed down for a few short weeks this past winter, the Springville Auction is back with dozens of vendors, produce, and even livestock to purchase on Wednesday mornings!
6. The Peddler (656 Elmwood Avenue)
The Peddler is an outdoor flea market located on the corner of Elmwood and West Ferry. What the market lacks in size, they make up for in amazing finds such as vintage and retro furniture, clothing, jewelry, and handmade items. Open Saturdays from 8:30 until 4.
7. Strykersville Town Wide Yard Sale (Main Street, Strykersville)
The Strykersville Town Wide Yard Sale isn't actually a flea market, but with the sheer amount of sellers, it's pretty darn close! This town wide sale typically runs in the first weekend in June, with almost every house on the street setting up shop to sell furniture and household items, produce, clothing, vintage tools, and more! There are even food vendors that will cook up fresh kettle corn and WNY favorites while you browse.
8. World's Largest Yard Sale (Hamburg Fair Grounds)
Mark your calendars! The World's Largest Yard Sale is coming back to town on May 12th this year, and while this is another that isn't technically a flea market, you'd be hard-pressed not to find something to love at this event! Just be sure to get there as early as possible. The crowds tend to be a bit crazy at this one!
