The Most Fun flea market: Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Flea Market, Long Beach, CA

Right in the heart of Southern California’s patio-living culture (nearly smack-dab between Los Angeles and Orange County), the Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Flea Market (mentioned earlier) hosts a huge assortment of outdoor furniture, garden ceramics and statuary.

Lynn and Donald Moger have managed the show, which takes place once a month at Veterans’ Stadium, since 1982, and they also enforce a 20-year rule, so you know the bounty of Fiestaware and 50s-era Pyrex bowls aren’t recent reproductions.

Lynn is most proud of the creativity her flea market inspires, and she says that she’s seen “an old railroad cart purchased for use as a coffee table and vintage file cabinets converted into a bedroom dresser.” One of its best perks? “Real restrooms!”

The Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Flea Market takes place the third Sunday of every month, rain or shine. Because of its sunny beach side location and popular beer vendors, this antiques flea market has a decidedly street fair feel, and locals come by each week just to walk around and soak up the sea breeze.
