My daughter and her family (husband and three kids) live in Boston now. They moved there about five years ago for a job offer that she received. I was so proud of her!
I hate that they don't live close by anymore, though. However, I do love it when they tell me all about the city and their adventures. I was there once and they took me to one of the most famous Boston flea markets-- The South End Open Market, which is open every Sunday from May until October. I hadn't seen anything like it!
There were more than 100 local art vendors and, my favorite, over 60 food stands and 15 local food trucks! I hadn't seen a food truck before. Of course, I had seen them on TV. I love to eat, so the fact that there was such a variety and surplus of foods to eat was like being in Heaven! Not too far away was the SoWa flea market.
This flea market had more of the artsy type of things, like jewelry, antiques, and art finds. I love to just putz around and find treasures. My granddaughter and I did just that!
I look forward to going back to visit them, hopefully soon. I'd love to have them take me to more interesting places!
Artists & Fleas in Chelsea Market is a charming mock flea market in the upscale Chelsea Market. I say “mock” because this is not a real flea market whatsoever. In most flea markets you can find some great deals, but not here.
Finding quality and fun flea markets is a secret joy of mine. I was recently in Atlanta, Georgia and found some super fun fleas to peruse through. I highly recommend the follow flea markets in Atlanta if you enjoy a good find for a great bargain! Make to say I sent you (that's a joke)!
