The city is slowly but surely coming to life again, and one of the ways New Yorkers can safely get out and about this summer is at one of the many food or flea markets that are reopening. From old standbys like the Grand Bazaar on the Upper West Side and Brooklyn Flea to newcomers like Fordham Flea and Smorgasburg Jersey City, there’s a little something for everyone, whether you’re looking for international cuisine, vintage clothing, or handmade housewares. Ahead, we’ve rounded up 13 markets you can visit, with more expected to announce opening dates soon.

The city’s local flea and food markets set up shop in springtime, bringing irresistible edibles and covetable goods to a neighborhood near you. Though dates and locations vary and favorite vendors come and go, the mighty market phenomenon keeps growing. The shop-and-nosh mecca Brooklyn Flea again changes locations (hello, WTC!), a favorite night market returns in Queens, and the Manhattan classics are back to offer more of what you didn’t know you couldn’t live without. Some of the best fairs are the most fleeting, and one-offs like the annual Renegade Arts and Crafts Fair are always worth the trip. The list below rounds up the city’s top food and flea picks. Let the hunting and gathering begin!

With spring weather in full effect, the city’s flea and food markets roll out the red carpet and the irresistible edibles, and it’s pretty likely there’s one happening near you. The shop-and-snack mecca Brooklyn Flea has changed locations yet again, a night market returns in Queens and antiquing, arts and local maker standbys in all corners of Manhattan offer more of what you didn’t know you couldn’t live without. The goods may be odd, but they’re out there, and the list below rounds up 20 of the city’s top food and flea picks. Just don’t blame us for the tchotchke overload—or the calories.
