| 3 min read

This summer, there are a lot of opportunities for purchasing second-hand items. Flea markets are a perfect place to find second-hand clothing, vintage furniture items, or books you’ve been dying to read. Flea markets are also a great way to consider your carbon footprint and reconsider your use of fast fashion.
We have compiled a list of eight flea markets to visit this summer.

The Royal Oak Farmers and Flea Market

This flea market is a great option for those in the metro Detroit area. It is attached to the Royal Oak Farmers Market so you can stop in there afterwards for some fresh produce and baked goods.
Hours: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays
Location: 316 E. 11 Mile Road, Royal Oak

Dixieland Flea Market in Waterford

This is the oldest and largest flea market in Oakland County and there are more than 250 vendors. This flea market is partially indoors and outdoors, a great place to be in the summertime.
