Like a Kid in a Candy Shop

When visiting Rockport we had a chance to check to Todd Farm Antique Flea Market, a weekly Sunday flea-market held in Rowley, Massachusetts. Oh my word what a treasure trove. 

When we first entered my heart leaped with delight! It's a junk collectors dream come true and I for one cannot think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning then walking around in the nice cool crisp morning air looking at the hundreds of vendor's displays of antiques, collectibles, nostalgic memorabilia and the occasional homemade artistic items. 


A New England tradition since 1971, the Todd Farm Antique Flea Market features up to 240 vendors from all over New England and New York. It's open every Sunday from mid-April through late November, though its busiest months are May, September, and October. Merchandise varies from antique furniture, vintage items, clocks, jewelry, recordings, tools to fishing rods, honey products, cedar fencing, vintage toys, and seasonal plants and flowers.

A local landmark, drawing crowds from throughout the region. If you are a fine connoisseur of yard sales, thrift shops, antique stores and flea markets then you will feel right at home at Todd Farm.  If I still haven't convinced you that this place is great, check out my finds...


Enamel cylinder, antique dough trencher, and hand crafted iron hooks. 

The was so much more I could buy, but space in our vehicle was limited since we had to carry our luggage home...lol

    1. Ellen, I was so excited when I spotted it, I made a beeline to it and scooped it up. Once in my possession I think I ended up doing a little dance

    1. Melissa, I was so jazzed when I spotted the dough bowl, I hugged it as I left the flea market and could not wipe the smile off my face. I hope you find one at a good price soon!
