Spring is here, and the warm air brings with it the popping up of flowers and flea markets. One of the hands-down best things about living in the Hudson Valley is the abundance of incredible flea markets and good old fashioned yard sales. This place is chock full of treasures, and treasure hunters… and hanging out in one of these energized, fun, affordable places is a great way to spend a sunny Spring afternoon.
We took a look at some of the best destinations for treasure hunting in and around Beacon. We are so lucky to have the Beacon Flea Market right here on Main St, but for those who like to pack the car with snacks and take off for a day of exploring, we found a handful of excellent, huge sales worth a visit.
