Mower's Saturday Flea Market - Woodstock, NEW YORK
Set amid a picturesque, tree-lined meadow just down the street from Woodstock’s Village Green, Mower’s may be the only market in America with its own drum circle. Proprietors John and Janine Mower pride themselves on an eclectic selection of merch from “antiques to zebras, from zithers to artwork” and pretty much deliver on that promise.
More prosaically, visitors can find items like collectibles, new and estate jewelry, antiques, depression glass, books, records, postcards, baseball cards, fresh produce and flowers.
Wares from Woodstock’s fabled crafters abound. So do artisanal foods, from Amish pickles to gourmet veggie hotdogs (which shoppers scarf in weekly contests). Musicians both famous and obscure set up to play a stone’s throw away from Levon Helm’s digs.
And you gotta love a market that offers both Free Hugs and a table of West Pointers selling raffle tickets to the Army-Navy game. Get a taste of the action at the Woodstock Fleamarket blog.
Every Saturday & Sunday from mid-May through November, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Mower’s also stages a Wednesday market from June through September. Free admission.
