Rhode Island’s Oldest Flea Market At The General Stanton Inn Is Still Going Strong

Living in Rhode Island sometimes means dining, sleeping, shopping and working in some pretty old buildings — after all, we are home to the oldest tavern in the country. The General Stanton Inn is no exception, having roots that go all the way back to the 1600s. These days, we know it best as the site of Rhode Island’s oldest flea market. And despite this year’s challenges, it’s still going strong and is open for business.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
