Philadelphia’s open-air market scene has seriously boomed this summer, with farmers’ markets featuring local goods aplenty and a number of other excellent open-air markets, including the ever-popping Brooklyn Flea Philly.

Since June, the Philadelphia outpost of the super-popular Brooklyn Flea has taken over The Piazza at Schmidt’s every Sunday with a festival-style affair showcasing serious shopping, excellent food vendors and live DJs.

Every week, Brooklyn Flea Philly brings out a finely tuned selection of local and regional vendors selling everything from fine antiques and vintage clothing to vinyl records and gourmet street food. Despite the name, almost all of the vendors are from the Greater Philadelphia region.

Since the open-air market kicked off, though, a number of vendors have rolled in and out. The folks who operate the flea don’t require vendors to commit for a certain length of time, so the lineup changes frequently.

That means fresh goods for return shoppers (yay!), but somewhat unpredictable findings for the occasional visitor.

To help you navigate the vendors of the flea, we offer up a roundup of vendors you’ll find weekly and sporadically. Read on for highlights of the staple vendors, and see below for a complete list of vendors by frequency.

The Shopping

Prepare to do some serious shopping. The Philly market hosts the stuff of a thrifter’s dreams with vintage clothing and furnishing vendors.

For furniture, top vendors you’ll find weekly include the upcycled goods of Butchershop Rehab, restored beauties from Found and the sweet accessories and more from Scout Salvage.

Vintage clothing lovers should seek out such vendors as Decades, Top Shelf Premium Vintage, Summer Mizera Vintage and Greatest Friend for clothing, shoes and accessories.

The Eating

It’s generally a good idea to come out to the Piazza hungry.

Local purveyors to seek out include Wursthaus Schmitz, Righteous Felon Jerky, Hot Diggity! and summertime requisite Lil’ Pop Shop.

Want to keep exploring the neighborhood after Brooklyn Flea Philly ends? Northern Liberties has a ton of great restaurants and bars to check out after you wrap up your shopping.

Check out the Northern Liberties Neighborhood guide on Visit Philly’s new Philadelphia Neighborhoods section for a great map of places to stop by afterwards.
