Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market


When the Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market opened in 1979, a handful of sellers displayed their wares in a front yard. More than three decades later, the Sunday flea market fills a 55-acre field and calls itself Connecticut's largest outdoor flea market. The Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market is located in New Milford.

The Inside Scoop:

  • If it looks like rain, call (508) 265-9911 to make sure they're opening before making the drive.
  • Take cash, especially small bills. Admission is cash only, and they can't change anything larger than a $10 bill.
  • Large selection of concessions available.
  • If you can't live without it, don't wait until late afternoon to buy. Some of the dealers start packing as early as 11 a.m.
  • Dealers will haggle, but you'll get better prices in the afternoon.
