This market was started by a group of farmers who sought ways to make money during the Depression. This place offers food from around the world, and is home to numerous stalls of meat, fish, fruit and sweets. It is extremely busy with both tourists and locals.
This market is known as the Saturday Market (flea market on Saturdays), but actually it is really called the Anchorage Market and Festival. Just go there in the summer and it offers everything, especially things like jams which are typical in Alaska, smoked salmon and fresh vegetables. It's fun to go just to stroll and enjoy the weather and see what they offer, and the many different stalls.
During the summers in Palmer, every Friday there's a market place which offers all sorts of things, especially local vegetables. The market has local food stalls, clothes everywhere, crafts and lots of other original bits and pieces. It's a fun place to go and spend the day because it's a very rustic and quaint place.
This fair was a complete surprise. I was driving by the area when I saw an ad and since I love fairs and festivals and markets, I stopped to see what was inside. It had everything! All kinds of clothing - modern, beautiful, stylish, used, cheap. Tons of food, music, furniture, antiques, art and beautiful people too! The market is open every Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm in the courtyard of a school and admission is $2.00. It was a very interesting experience and I highly recommend it to those looking to escape the typical tourist spots in Los Angeles.
The Astoria Sunday Market is a large outdoor market downtown Astoria that runs May through October. It features hundreds of local vendors of all types, from handcrafted ceramics and soaps to produce and fudge. It also has a great food cart and regional live music. This market is actually Oregon's 2nd largest market of it's kind. It's strongly rooted in Astroria's history as connecting artisans, farmers, and artists of the Pacific Northwest with the community. Stroll through the rows of tents and sample delicacies, admire some fine artistry, and maybe find something that you'll cherish. Catch some live music while you're at it, and just take in the vibrance of the Sunday Market in beautiful Astoria.
I've never been a big fan of Brooklyn, but the Fort Greene flea market is a place where you could comfortably spend an entire Saturday. It is the only true bric-a-brac in New York where you can find everything (really everything) from furniture to jewelry, from stuffed animals to vintage clothes, with prices ranging from $ 1 to $ 5000. One side of the market is dedicated to the food stand, with a lot of portable wood-fired ovens to make pizza on the premises! Open on Saturdays from 10 to 5.
The New Castle Farmers Market is, without a doubt, the best and more popular Farmers Market in all of Delaware! What makes New Castle Farmers Market special, though, is that it's not jut about fresh produce, but literally has thousands and thousands of square feet of everything under the sun...antiques, curiosities, fresh fruit, baked good, clothes, knick-knacks, and Americana.
One of the best things to do at the New Castle Farmers Market is to go and see the Amish section and sample some of their baked goods. The pastries and bread are baked with care and you notice it immediately in the taste. They also have some of the best meats in the state. If you're planning a summer barbecue, you could do worse than stopping by the market.
The thing to keep in mind is that New Castle Farmers Market isn't a simple place to buy fruit and veggies. Rather, it's a chunk of traditional American life. From the worn out old license plates on display to the jovial local bars and old-fashioned barbers, it's a place to discover the America that was and, why not, spend a nice morning perusing the curiosities on display.
