As you may well know, Brimfield Antique Flea Markets happens three times a year: May, July and September. Each event has it’s own individual feel.
The May Show (May 9-14) is the first show of the Brimfield season, and is easily the busiest show of the year. This is the time that you will find the freshest offers and merchandise from dealers in every field and shop.
The Brimfield July show (July 11-16). At this time of the summer, you may notice thinner crowds as well as less competition for the rare items available. As one seller experienced, the July heat tends to keep both vendors and buyers at bay. As you can see in the on our site, there are many wonderful restaurants, inns and antique shops that offer an oasis from the summer heat.
For the September show (September 5-10), you’ll encounter larger crowds once again, as the summer heat has subsided. This is the time that you will find many savvy shoppers looking for an end of the season deal.
