A List of Local Flea Markets to Visit This Summer

Flea markets have long since been a way for shoppers to not only find great deals on goods — but also support local vendors and find unique gifts. Some markets are also outdoors — which is a great way to shop safely by physical distancing. Luckily, there are quite a few flea markets to check out in the Denver area. Make sure to stop by at least one of them before summer is over.

Mile High Flea Market

The Lowdown: Mile High Flea Market has been a Colorado staple for over 40 years. It sits on a whopping 80 acres and is known for offering everything from furniture to fresh groceries. It is open every weekend year-round, which makes it an ideal choice for shoppers with busy schedules. While the market usually features live music and carnival rides — they have been put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, live entertainment may soon return to Mile High Flea Market.

The Lowdown: A Paris Street Market is an open-air flea market that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. This market is excellent for those specifically in search of antiques and artisan goods — although you can find food and groceries as well. The market is only open on select dates throughout the year. But if you can’t make it to one of the dates at the Littleton location, the market has a second location outside Park Meadows Mall with other dates. This market is not open year-round — so be sure to check it out before the summer is over.
