RVing is largely about jumping from one campground to the next, visiting lakes, forests, rivers, and mountains. Occasionally, however, you’ll be drawn to a city or town. Whether to refresh and recharge in civilization before you head back onto the road in search of more natural splendor or simply because you want to soak up some sights and sounds in the city, you’re probably going to spend at least a little time doing some shopping.
If you’re looking for some of the best shopping in any city or town, you’ll want to check out the flea market. Washington state has got some good markets, but the following are truly exceptional.
Anacortes Flea Market, Anacortes
The Anacortes Flea Market has a bit of everything and the stock and vendors are ever shifting. The sprawling indoor market changes from week to week, so if you pass by once and find yourself back in the area a week or month later, don’t hesitate to stop back in again; it’ll be like a whole new shopping experience the second time around.
A Very Vintage Market, Seattle
This flea market has the feel of an antique roadshow. It pops up monthly in a market located in North Seattle at the Lake City Community Center. Head there on the last Saturday of every month when it’s usually open for business (try to confirm the date and time if you’re not sure if it’ll be open).
Pine Street Market and Boutique, Spokane
Full of vintage goodness, the Pine Street flea market is located at 12107 East Sprague Avenue. It has a good selection of antiques, handmade items, assorts odds and ends, and vintage items.
Fremont Sunday Market, Seattle
The ultimate flea market in Washington, Seattle’s Fremont Sunday Market is open every week on Sunday from 10m to 5pm year round. You’ll find crafts, art, collectibles, antiques, vintage items, and some of the best street food anywhere in the state.
