Flea Market

Visiting the Omni Mount Washington Resort in the summer or snow skiing at Cannon Mountain Ski Resort in the winter are two reasons to visit New Hampshire.

This New England state is home to only 1.355 million people plus a forest full of moose and black bears.

I am a huge fan of Salem, but there are other flea markets, including the state’s oldest–Hollis Flea Market.

Find out more about the state’s flea markets and where to swap dollars for treasures.

You will end up taking home a lot more than just antiques and collectibles thanks to the chatty vendors and friendly stories they have to share.

See what I am talking about at the 10 best flea markets in New Hampshire.

The 10 Best Flea Markets in New Hampshire

Salem NH Flea Market

The Salem NH Flea Market has grown in size and popularity in the past 40 years.

This is because the flea market is untraditionally open all year every Saturday and Sunday for indoor and outdoor business.

You do not have to wait for the summer months to enjoy this flea market!

Shop among a wide selection of antiques plus new and used items from vendors with a longstanding history at the marketplace.

While out there shopping, be ready to grab a bite to eat at one of the two food concession stands–one inside the building and one for shoppers at the outside booths.

A bonus–there are public bathrooms at the Salem NH Flea Market, as well as an ATM on the flea market grounds.

Open no matter what the weather, thanks to the large L-shaped indoor commercial building.

Also, if you are driving into town, the private parking lot at the Salem NH Flea Market is paved for the convenience of customers.

No driving through the mud to get to this flea market!

Hollis Flea Market

Next, I bring you the largest and oldest flea market in New Hampshire–Hollis Flea Market.

Over the decades, since 1964, this flea market has become the place to go for those locals looking for a bargain.

Today the market is a place that has something for everyone.

At Hollis Flea Market, expect to leave with a healthy education on the meaning of the term “flea market.”

The large flea market welcomes guests with over 20 acres, hundreds of parking spaces, 400 vendors, full concession stands, and a wide variety of beer and wine.

You might even see a real Sasquatch roaming freely.

Along with the wide variety of treasures and concession stands, visitors will also feel safe knowing that there will be two Hollis police officers directing foot traffic on busy days.

The popular Hollis Flea Market is open every Sunday at 7 am.

One consideration is the flea market is fully out in the open.

So, if the weather is poor, there will be no flea market that day. 

Londonderry Flea Market

Known for turning the flea market shopping experience into a family event, guests can bring food for their own personal, and free, picnic at the Londonderry Flea Market.

This is a great way to save money!

While on the expansive 30 acres off Route 102, you can find other ways to cut your spending even more with collectibles and antiques, as well as a consignment service and thrift store.

Another open-air market, this outdoor flea market operates every Saturday and Sunday during the season from April through October.

Here you can meet yard sellers, vendors, small business owners, entrepreneurs, and even nonprofit organizations that are regularly on-site for shoppers.

Oh, by the way, this is a BYOB market–as in, bring your boat!

If you happen to own a miniature remote-controlled boat, take this to the Londonderry Flea Market and let it loose on the pond.

Just be wary of dogs on leashes that might want to snag your boat, as this is a pet-friendly event.

Davisville Flea Market

Davisville Flea Market is open every Sunday, rain or shine, starting at a bright and cheerful 4 am and running until 1 pm.

Note that the prime time to visit this flea market is from 6 am to 11 am, if you want to score the best prices on the hottest items.

Food concession stands and a hot air balloon are some of the exciting traditions that happen each weekend at the Davisville Flea Market.

This New Hampshire flea market is open to the public and charges nothing for admission and parking.

The parking lot is a massive field of green grass, so anticipate driving in mud if the weather changes.

Guests planning to visit the flea market should check out the treasures from vendors on social media.

Whether looking for books and games or jewelry and clothing, Davisville Flea Market has something for everyone of all ages.

The flea market is open seasonally from April through October. 

Hidden Treasures Indoor Flea Market

Ready to find something on a different scale?

Here we have an indoor flea market in New Hampshire.

Family-owned and operated, Hidden Treasures Indoor Flea Market has something for everyone, including an active Facebook community.

During the market season in the summertime, the flea market regularly plays host to monthly festivals.

Bring your family and friends and enjoy live music as you shop for the latest market goodies from favored vendors.

Hidden Treasures Indoor Flea Market prides itself on always giving the community something fun to do.

The well-known market embraces every guest with a warm smile and friendly face.

Whether looking for a dreamcatcher, special herbs, or something out of the ordinary, visitors will not be disappointed in their unique treasure finds.

And since Salem is not too far away, it makes sense to have something esoteric and witchy to include in this flea market list.

The B’s Treasures and Flea Market

The B’s Treasures and Flea Market in Swanzey, family-owned since 1946, is one of the longest-running flea markets in New Hampshire.

First of all, the indoor building and selling floor is divided into seven massive but distinct rooms.

The flea market welcomes visitors to an organized building with each area featuring a specific type of item.

From housewares, entertainment, and antiques, you can find whatever you need.

Thanks to an indoor space, The B’s Treasures and Flea Market has everything from domestic essentials to decorative pieces for the home.

With thousands of square feet of shopping space and many vendors to choose from, expect all sorts of ephemera and collectibles.

As a bonus, The B’s Treasures and Flea Market crew inspects every item received thoroughly before putting them out for sale.

Items are also tested and repaired so that customers never have to worry about broken toys, tools, and assorted devices.

This flea market is closed on Wednesday but is open the rest of the week and throughout the year.

Rusty’s Antiques and Vintage Collectibles Indoor Flea Market

The next flea market I have for you is Rusty’s Antiques and Vintage Collectibles Indoor Flea Market in Hudson, NH on Old Derry Road.

This is one of those rural, country flea markets that is more local hang out than just a place to buy vintage records.

Speaking of records, check out their site on Facebook.

You will see fun items the flea market sells, like green and wood record players and pricey Hummels, which are tiny porcelain ceramic dolls from a century ago in Europe.

Rusty’s is not rusty at all thanks to plenty of modern-day collectibles and vintage picks.

Look out for trading cards and other sports memorabilia, as well as large-scale items like boat and auto parts.

This New Hampshire flea market is open to the public Saturday and Sunday throughout the year, 10 am to 5 pm.

Along with being a popular New England flea market, this is also a collectible, vintage, and antique marketplace.  

Wakefield-Union NH Online Flea Market

In Wakefield, New Hampshire, there is a treasure all of its own–the Wakefield-Union NH Online Flea Market.

Look out for the signage indicating this is also the Yankee Stripper, established in 1974, which may very well be the case.

However, you do not even have to drive anywhere to find out about that sign.

Just checking their website will do the trick!

If you want to avoid the crowds, quite literally, and shop in the comfort of your home or while at work, you can do so at your convenience.

Oh, how the joys of the internet continue to profoundly affect us all! Just kidding.

Meanwhile, back here in New Hampshire in rural Wakefield, you can message the finders and keepers of coffee tables, oil lamps, and handmade jewelry.

The staff run the site and are available 24 hours a day to take your email message and online orders.

The Milford Market Antiques

For three generations, the Milford Market Antiques at 22 Clinton Street in Milford, New Hampshire has been a favorite shopping pastime.

Hunting down the latest trends in vintage clothing and seeking out that hard-to-track down glass pieces for a table setting?

There are some antique dealers who have worked at Fairgrounds Antiques for decades.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are certain items more popular than others in New Hampshire?

In the state of New Hampshire, the more popular items include cottage and rural lifestyle pieces, such as retro farm equipment or collectible hand rollers for washing clothes.

These kinds of primitive lifestyle items are popular in New England and other rural areas, but in particular, these are commonplace in New Hampshire.

In terms of furniture, look for a mix of traditional wood antique furniture combined with retro and brightly colored new style pieces.

Should I visit flea markets in New Hampshire in the summer season?

Actually, this is one of the only states in the nation where you do not have to wait until it is summer to shop at flea markets.

When you are ready to go flea market shopping, you can do so–just look for the indoor markets.

These are going to be climate controlled and offer more consistent shopping hours.

An outdoor flea market in NH is often open to vendors and dealers arriving that day–and leaving that evening.

As a result, there is less consistency when finding certain types of items at outdoor flea markets.

Indoor flea markets also happen to have more antiques, which require indoor storage for maintaining the marketable condition of the items.
