The Junction Flea

The Junction Flea has permanently closed.

Last month, while driving along Dundas West, a sign in an empty lot caught my eye – it advertised a new flea market. Typically, I find flea markets exhausting, but being in the now-super-trendy Junction area, I suspected this one would have a selection of choice antique dealers and vintage clothing sellers.

This past Sunday, we finally made it to the market, and I must say, the merchandise did not disappoint – it was full of old and interesting items. The vintage clothing was on point, and the antique dealers had an impressive collection of rare finds. All in all, it was a pleasant surprise and definitely worth the visit.

There were some food sellers that looked good,

and a fortune teller in a trailer.

I’d like to point out that the flea market in the Junction area is actually called the Junction Flea, not the Junction Flea Market as some might assume. As with many flea markets, prices can be higher than those found at a typical garage sale. However, the unique items and vintage finds on offer can make it worthwhile for those willing to pay a bit more for that perfect treasure.

The Junction Flea takes place the second Sunday of every month rain or shine; the last one is in September. On Dundas east of Keele in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto.
