Stormville Airport Antique Show & Flea Market

By

Join the throngs of local and visiting shoppers at the Stormville Airport Antique Show & Flea Market, located at an abandoned airfield in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley. Started in 1970 with just a couple of dozen vendors, the Stormville Flea now features more than 600 vendors selling new and used goods. The flea market season lasts from April to November, with six shows per year. The airfield also hosts two enormous garage sale events during the season.

Merchandise:

In some of the booths, you’ll have to do some digging, but there’s plenty of treasure to be found. In fact, with more than 600 vendors, there’s little you won’t find at the Stormville Flea Market. Pack your flea market tool kit and plan to spend the day. Among the new and used merchandise, you’ll see:

  • Antiques and collectibles
  • Furniture, vintage and antique
  • Handmade arts and crafts
  • Home decor and accessories, new and vintage
  • Linens and pillows
  • Garden supplies and accessories
  • Ceramics, glassware, and dishes
  • Architectural salvage
  • Antique hardware and fixtures
  • Vintage display fixtures and signage
  • Comic books, vinyl records, and postcards
  • New, antique, and handcrafted jewelry
  • Vintage clothing
  • New clothing, purses and accessories
  • Cosmetics and toiletries

The Inside Scoop:

  • Take plenty of cash. Very few of the dealers accept credit cards.
  • Don't eat before you go. Buy lunch from one of the many food vendors -- or try a sampling from several. Enjoy fire roasted corn, fried dough, sausage and peppers, sweet potato fries and more. For dessert, stop by the ice cream truck for a sundae.
  • If you get tired or hot, refresh yourself with an ice-cold brew from the onsite beer garden.
  • Dealers are willing to haggle, but you'll get better prices at the end of the day.
