Flea Markets in LA

United States: Top 20 Flea Markets in the US (2024 Update)

Melrose Trading Post - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA

The Melrose Trading Post Flea Market is a weekly antique, art, and collectibles market held every Sunday in the parking lot of Fairfax High School. Actually, the Melrose Trading Post Flea Market is a fundraiser for Fairfax High School.

The Melrose Trading Post attracts between 3,000 and 4,000 attendees each week and features nearly 200 eclectic vendors. That’s bigger than your average local high school fundraiser, but not too big to count as a laid-back Sunday activity.

Admission is $3, which is not bad compared to the $8 admission to the famous Rose Bowl Flea Market. In fact, the Melrose Trading Post flea market is regularly cited as a great alternative to the larger and more expensive Rose Bowl market. Plus, the Melrose Trading Post flea market is held every Sunday instead of just one Sunday a month.

The Melrose Trading Post has a well-edited selection of vintage clothing, records, furniture, plants, jewelry, random knickknacks, and quirky antique treasures that can get pricey. But if you dig deep enough, you can find some great stuff and good prices.

Located at Fairfax Middle School, this gem of a market is the perfect size for a relaxed Sunday sightseeing trip. From vintage artwork and clothing to candid vacation photos of random families, the Melrose Trading Post offers just the right amount of everything you might find at larger flea markets like the Rose Bowl. Admission is $2, parking is easy in the school parking lot, and the market is smack dab in the middle of some of the best shopping in town (if you get a chance, check out Wasteland a few blocks down on Melrose and Martel). Okay, go, go, go!

Arrive early, explore, and bring plenty of cash. You don’t want to wait in line at the ATM, because every minute is precious for discovering those hidden gems you came all this way to find. And if you’re still in shopping mode after your vintage treasure hunt, you can continue your shopping spree in the area. It is known as one of the best shopping destinations in LA.
