Inside Scoop: Annex Markets
Vintage enthusiasts seeking rare treasures from yesteryear should explore the weekend antiques and flea markets Annex Markets hosts in both Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen. The markets have been in operation since 1976 and are open year-round (weather pending), offering an array of interesting antiques, furnishings, and décor, as well as vintage clothing, ephemera, idecorative arts, and more. These shopping destinations lure many of New York's style elite—expect to see stylists, designers, and artists among the customers.
Evoking the vibe of the original Annex Antiques Fair & Flea Market, Chelsea Flea Market sits in the shadow of the Cathedral of St. Sava. Here, savvy dealers and equally savvy shoppers peddle, haggle, scout merchandise, and mingle. The market boasts up to 135 vendors who sell a wide range of collectibles, including Art Deco and mid-century modern items. The market, which is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 6:30am to 6pm, is on the uptown side of West 25th Street between Sixth Avenue and Broadway. It's in close proximity to the Flatiron Building and the Italian food space Eataly.
Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market (HKFM) is also open on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 5pm, year-round. It's located at West 39th Street, between Ninth and Tenth Avenues.
