    The fact that you don’t have English town flea market in nj listed and then in the same listing put up Brooklyn flea amongst all the overrated high priced crap in nyc. Discredits this entire list…

    • Michael

      To my opinion, the English Town flea market has been on a downward spiral for some time now and this time, it seems it has hit bottom. This is the saddest flea market I’ve ever seen. If you’re going for clothes, tools, CD’s, DVD’s, questionable toothpaste, shampoo or food goods, sock vendors, cheap/knock off sweatshirts, work boots, women’s accessories, etc then you’ve found the spot. There are also multiple booths selling drugstore discards: damaged cosmetics, over the counter meds & personal hygiene items in broken boxes. If you are a seeker of actual antiques, then this is NOT the place for you.

      If this place was better organized and they put a limit on the types/numbers of vendors selling new crap, it might become a 3 star experience. At this point, it looks like someone owns a big piece of land and is letting anyone with money and a folding table throw down. If it is $13 a table, and there are easily a thousand tables at the Englishtown Flea (not to mention the sad stores inside of the many buildings), we are basically looking at someone’s poorly managed cash cow. This place needs management, organization and someone that cares about the experience of the attendee.

    Why are these the best? Size? Quality? Attendance? All a matter of opinion.

      Hi sg, thanks for stopping by and asking! As a matter of facts, you’re absolutely right to wonder how we came up with such a listing. To tell the truth, it was quite hard to decide which flea market should make it to this listing, and which not. Top 10 fleas were pretty easy to pick as they naturally make sense (Brimfield, Round Top, Rose Bowl, Springfield…). The following ten where those which required a more thorough investigation, since, as you write it, it’s (almost) “all a matter of opinion”. So we did our own research, and decided to pick flea markets which seem to make a consensus among other flea market enthusiasts.And this is how this listing was born! But as it is the case with any kind of ranking, it is bound to evolve with time :)
      Are there any flea markets you wished would have been featured in this listing?
