GreenFlea is one of the top 20 markets in the USA!

The Best Flea, Antique, Vintage, and New-Style Markets in America takes readers on a tour of the country’s best markets, selected by author, museum curator, and professional market shopper Pamela Keech. Featured markets include GreenFlea, the massive Brimfield Antique Show & Flea Market, Philadelphia’s famous Phila Flea Markets, and the road trip-worthy Historic National Road Yard Sale, among other fabulous picks. The guide tells shoppers how to get the most out of their market trip: how to save time, the must-know vendors, and the best local places to eat and stay—all of the details are covered.

Pamela Keech is an artist, writer, and expert in the material culture of the working classes. In 1993 she began working as the Curator of Furnishings at the Tenement Museum and has since furnished the entire museum with flea market finds. She is the author of The Curious Shopper’s Guide to New York City, and co-author of The Civilized Shopper’s Guide to Rome.

You'll want to know that . . .

The market is open to shoppers every Sunday from 10 AM to 5:30 PM. It is located on Columbus Avenue between W. 76th and W. 77th Streets on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. There is no admission charge. Have a question? - You can email us at greenflea@aol.com or leave a message at 212-239-3025.

Also remember that unless the subway system is shut down or there is actually a blizzard on Sunday, the market is always open. We plow the yard so you will even find some of the hardier vendors working outside throughout the winter.

Don't forget to visit the very lively indoor market. Lots of great antiques and collectibles.

GreenFlea has been operating for more than 25 years on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It was among the first open air markets in the city. Combining both antique/vintage collectibles and new handcrafted items, it is a ideal place to look for something different to give or to keep. You'll find wonderful things at reasonable prices -- most of them not available anywhere else. Some of the handcrafters at the market will also offer custom-made merchandise, from jewelry to furniture to clothing. The vendors take pride in helping shoppers find just what they're looking for. Bring the family -- there is something for everyone.

Thinking of making some changes in your home? Look no further!

Visit the GreenFlea food section -- prepared gourmet food vendors

Within the flea market itself (just inside the gate on W. 77th St.), you will also find some gourmet food providers: a baker offering cookies and desserts, a nut and dried fruit vendor with a large assortment of homemade cookies (including low sugar one), a caterer who offers wonderful savory quiches and turnovers, and a vendor selling fabulous pickles, olives and other condiments. Our newest addition offers hot sauces, salsas, and other spicy treats. There are also fabulous Greek-style pastries, salads and savories sold by another vendor. You can shop and pick up your lunch or dinner on the way out of the market. Our spice and tea vendor is back with a display that will make it seem like you are shopping at a marche in France! Fresh breads, Viennese cookies, gluten-free baked goods, cheesecake and Turkish treats.
