Phoenicia Flea is a makers market that was founded in upstate NY in 2014. The first three events were at The Graham & Co., a boutique hotel in Phoenicia, thus giving the market it’s name. Phoenicia Flea has grown each year. 2015 saw nine events in nine different locations, which included Asbury Park, NJ, Brooklyn and various upstate NY locations. Each market showcases 30 – 40 vendors, the best in categories ranging from vintage to ceramics, jewelry to apothecary and textiles to paper goods. There are local artisanal food and beverage vendors, so visitors can enjoy the day shopping, eating and relaxing. The next Phoenicia Flea is May 28th & 29th 2016 at Hasbrouck House in Stone Ridge, NY. (check link for full 2016 schedule)

On The Phoenicia Flea
“ Anyone can buy anything online. The Phoenicia Flea is an experience… Good tunes, shopping, eating, drinking, and lying on a blanket next to the bonfire. That’s luxury to me.”
