During mid-May, July and September, the Brimfield flea market in Massachusetts opens for six consecutive days. It was founded by Gorden Reid in 1959 when he started an outdoor market on his own backyard.
At present, at least a million visitors come to Massachusetts to check out Brimfield flea market. The shops offer a variety of products ranging from vanes, decoys, and Nantucket baskets to mechanical parts of some ships. As one passes by the town’s main road, he can see hundreds of vendors flanking both sides of Route 20, selling the best of their items.
Some of the most popular shops visited by customers are Dealer’s Choice which sells high quality furniture; Heart-O-The Mart, known for selling hobnail glassware and intact grains sacks; and J&J Auction Acres, which offers colonial cherrywoord chests and convex mirrors of high quality. Aside from these shops, a number of vendors also sell delicious food like the fresh-popped kettle corn, the Pilgrim Sandwich, roasted turkey and $10 lobster rolls sold in generous servings. The New England Motels offers the largest court area and an incredible serving of French fries.

We found a pretty cool cold pressed juice machine used which we are excited about trying.
