Aquaduck Flea Market in East New York does sell electronics, home goods and accessories, but it has a good selection of vintage clothing. Unlike a lot of markets across Brooklyn that cater to more well-off customers, Aquaduck offers an old-school flea that has something for every price point. Many of the vendors do home clean-outs, purchase overstock and turn around and sell it for an affordable price, too. (8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Tuesdays, 700 Fountain Ave., Brooklyn)” data-id=”129601104″ data-link=”https://amnewyork.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/6369_image.jpg” class=”wp-image-1.29601104″/> Photo Credit: Aquaduck Flea Market

The thrill of the hunt is on.
Warmer days are here, so it’s time to shop outside. Rather than heading into a chain store, do your fellow New Yorkers a solid and stop by their flea market tents. Vendors have everything you could possibly need, from records to furniture and from clothes to food — and often at lower prices.
So take some cash out (or your credit card), get your haggling skills ready and have a bag to carry back all your new treasures — we’re going shopping.
