“One of the Largest Flea Markets in the Area”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I have been going to the Elephant's Trunk Flea Market since the early 90's. During the summer it is huge! Lots of variety - antiques, jewelry, furniture, memorabilia, new items, food and plants. It takes you about 3 hours to do the whole flea market during the summer months. Don't go on a holiday weekend because of Stormville Flea Market, the venders are split and it's usually a smaller group of venders. Can't go wrong!

“NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE!!! Don't waste your time or $$$$”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Used to go all the time some years ago ... Went in the fall to sell .. Waited in line at 5 am I get in ... Hardly any people walkin around ... Most of the vendors around me had not sold anything !!!!!
The only action was the booth across from me whose seller was running back and forth and occasionally would show a special customer something out if the can of his truck ... Swords I think .. The most action came from everyone that looked in his le crusett pan was invited to the back of his truck for a purchase out if sight ... I didn't feel comfortable with these sales going on right there but no kne could not leave since the fence was locked until 1 pm to keep the vendors there longer they implemented this new rule ....needless to say I will not be going there again!!!!!

This is one of the best tag sales in the area. Something for everyone. Found many hidden treasures at the various vendors.

“Always an excellent time at the Flea”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Lots of free parking and cheap to enter . Easy in easy out . Pota potty's not bathrooms but they are kept clean and ample . Wash up sinks on grounds as well . Good food trucks and plenty of them spread around . Farm products and antiques . Unpaved grounds but easy to walk . Vendors are not pushy and your free to browse as long as you wish . You can have a good time even if you don't find anything you want .
