Hey! I live in State College, but am willing to travel to find a good flea market. Anyone know of any? Even in Nj...I've got family there and can make a trip.

My mom lives in PA and she said there's a flea market in "Marshalls Creek" and "Saylorsburg". Don't know how far that is for you, but hope that helps.

There is one in West Nanticoke, called the Garden Drive. Also a few in Scranton PA. I haven't been to the one in Scranton in years. I don't think either are worth traveling for, though.

The ones around here (Scranton area) are beat. There's one in Dickson City at the drive-in theater, and an indoor one in Eynon at the old Sugermans. It's usually old junk, household goods that were probably stolen off a dock in NYC, and crafts. I've been to the Saylorsburg one though, many years ago, and it was nice.

there are a few outside new hope on the jersey side that are pretty good--the golden nugget and another one whose name escapes me. lots of antiques and oddities, a little pricey, though, at least for me.

there are also a couple out near lancaster that happen once or twice a year and are usually a treasure-trove of goodies. way back when, before kids, my partner and i would hit up a few sales that way and scored somepretty cool stuff. we found out about them through a now-defunct website that listed flea markets, so i can't help out any more than that, but maybe someone from the area will know what i'm talking about.

Rice's is a great flea market. It's in Bucks County PA (outside of philly). I think it is open every Tuesday (maybe). It's HUGE and tons of people go there. HTH!

I think the other one is Green Dragon Audrey.

There is Renniger's right near Reading, and Zerns in Gilbertsville also

The Green Dragon is open every Friday - I really like it. But I'm afraid I go more for the food that's there...yummy homemade baked goods

Roots Market in Lancaster - I think there may be a website somewhere - it has like 2 or 3 huge indoor markets that are mainly for food, then outside is a huge flea market, food stands and some cool Guatamalean stuff, some antique dealers too. It's on every Tuesday and the first Sat. of the month. You can come hang out with me Lizzo!

Where in NJ do you go? There is a big one not far from Ft Dix. Columbus Farmers Market.
