At the beginning of summer, I shared several flea markets to visit. I’m back with more flea markets around the United States worth your time. Some I’ve visited and some I’m itching to look through before Labor Day weekend. See new scavenger hotspots near you.

To celebrate their 10th market event, the Denver Flea Market is free next month. That means your budget can stretch further. Pick up everything from vintage lamps and velvet artwork to locally milled Colorado whiskey and handmade jewelry. Held only four times a year and each time at a new location keeps this market feeling fresh.

Plan Your Visit: Shop the Denver Flea on August 13 and 14, 10am to 6pm both days. The summer market will be held at Denver’s City Park, next to the Thatcher Memorial Fountain, City Park Esplanade.

When comedian Dave Sherrill and his wife Melissa moved to Canton, Ohio, they saw a lot of potential in the sleepy downtown neighborhood. They started by opening Arrowhead, a small vintage storefront in 2014 and moved on to establish the monthly Downtown Canton Flea Market. While visiting this market, my haul included handmade organic soap, vintage t-shirts and locally crafted sweets.

Plan Your Visit: Join them for the second market of the season on Saturday, August 20, from 9am to 1pm. The flea market is located next to Deli Ohio, 328 Walnut Avenue NE in Canton, Ohio.

I’ve used any excuse to get down to Asheville, North Carolina but this by far is my favorite reason. Asheville Flea for Y’ALL is a huge monthly market with a mix of handmade and vintage vendors. Shop all day and get breakfast, lunch and dinner options at the gorgeous riverfront venue, Salvage Station.

Plan Your Visit: If you can hop over there this weekend, check out the market on Sunday, July 31 from 9am to 4pm. If not, make the trip for August 28 and plan to see over 100 vendors. Salvage Station is located at 468 Riverside Drive in Asheville, North Carolina.

This pop-up market full of pop-up campers is the cutest thing you’ll ever see. Shannon and her husband, Bruce Andersen started the trailer park five years ago as a way to bring the community together for food-truck events, outdoor movies and local shopping. And to make it even more enticing, this market is solely focused on sustainable, up-cycled, reused and handmade products.

Plan Your Visit: Open very Saturday from noon to 7pm and on Sundays from 11am to 4pm. Make your way to Georgetown Trailer Park at 5805 Airport Way South in Seattle, Washington.
