Vendor Rates For Saturday & Sunday Markets Downtown Please Scroll Down To The Bottom Of This Page And Click On Vendor Application Form.

For Saturday Markets Downtown Please Post Date your checks for the date of each market that you'd like to attend and make all of your post dated checks payable to Phila Flea Markets. If a market is sold out or if you have to cancel, your payment can now be applied to another future market. Mail with just 1 application in 1 envelope. If you do not have E-Mail, please include a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE)

Lastly - quite a number of vendors are applying for all our markets and there is not enough vendor space for everyone that applies. In an effort to try and accommodate everyone we will be rotating vendors for most of the markets. For example, if you mail in payment for both markets at 4th & Pine (Spring & Fall) you may only be placed in the Spring market so other vendors can take part in the Fall market. Your alternate check will be placed on the waiting list and if you are not called, your check will be shredded.

WHAT TO BRING & WHAT TO WEAR
Bring your own tables, folding chairs, paper or plastic bags for merchandise, a trash bag or box and plenty of bottled water. If the weather is very hot, bring along a hat/visor, sunglasses and sunscreen. Wear old clothes and comfortable shoes.

WHEN TO START
Come out early. Some of your best sales may come from Early Birds or other vendors before the flea market even opens.

HOW TO PRICE
Make sure all of your items are clearly marked with a price tag. DO NOT make your customers ask for prices. If you are busy with another customer, you could lose a potential sale. Price your items to move. A true flea market shopper loves to bargain! A price guideline is 10-15% of the original retail price with the exception of antiques and collectibles.

NOTE Bring at least $20 in $1s and $5s to get you started. Also, bring quarters if you plan to price anything under $1. An apron with deep pockets will serve as a good money holder.
