Hell's Kitchen Flea Market (discontinued/merged with Chelsea flea market) - New York City, NEW YORK

Year-round, rain or shine, a stretch of West 39th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, NY is closed to traffic on Saturdays and Sundays as approximately 150 vendors fill their booths with furniture, vintage clothing, jewelry, ephemera, art objects, and retro home decor.

The Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market is where collectors and high-end bargainers come to shop for antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing, mid-century modern items, home decor, furniture, jewelry and more. The clientele is diverse – you might run into celebrities and fashionistas, and you are sure to see residents and tourists alike browsing the market for hidden treasures.

One of the advantages of the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market is its slightly off-the-beaten-path location, which forces vendors to offer lower prices than those found elsewhere to compensate for the short trip.

Like any good flea market, it’s all in the digging. And with up to one hundred and fifty vendors, there are countless treasures to be uncovered – especially since many of the vendors at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market come from the now-defunct Chelsea Antiques Garage, which used to be the best flea market in the city.

This unlikely stretch of street in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood still exudes an authentic New York vibe, even though the neighborhood’s real estate prices are now comparable to chic Chelsea. All in all, year-round weekend antiquing at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market is unparalleled and should be on your New York bucket list.

UPDATE: Due to the gentrification of the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood and rising costs, the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market merged with the legendary Chelsea Flea Market (founded in 1976) in January 2019. Flea market and antique enthusiasts will find many of their favorite Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market vendors there at 29 West 25th Street, New York, NY 10011, between 6th Avenue and Broadway. The Chelsea Flea Market offers a wide variety of antiques, collectibles, decorative arts and other interesting inventory. Bringing the Hell’s Kitchen vendors to Chelsea creates a true critical mass of merchandise that enhances the buying experience for shoppers and the selling experience for vendors.
