Todd Farm Flea Market Opening Day

Today was the "season opener" of my all time favorite flea market, Todd Farm, and as usual the show was packed with amazing finds and I made out like a bandit. Todd Farm is a real deal flea market 45 minutes north of Boston that runs every Sunday spring through fall. You won't find any knockoff designer bags, cheap leather belts, or crafts at Todd Farm, just the real deal, dusty, chippy, old stuff. Sure, there's some occasional junk nobody would want, but the show is overwhelmingly great and I have never left anywhere close to empty handed. The market is large enough that you can spend a solid three hours shopping without passing the same booth twice, and yet it is not overwhelming. Brimfield is great and I look forward to it all year, but to be honest I prefer Todd Farm. I can get in and out in a few hours without dealing with parking hassles and lines, and the deals are better. Add in the fact that the show is completely dog friendly and has the best homemade donuts I've ever tasted, and it just can't be beat.

If you are a flea market lover on the east coast and have yet to check out Todd Farm, I highly suggest giving it a shot.


  1. Hope you had a happy time hunting out the bargains. Have a marvellous Monday.
