Opened in 1965, The General Stanton Inn Flea Market is one of the oldest, largest and most popular Flea Markets in Rhode Island. In 2014, The Huffington Post named it "One of America's Best." This Flea Market flourishes with rows of vendors selling antiques, collectibles, new and boutique items, crafts, art and Farmers' Market items. Organizers at the Flea Market hope to attract even more Farmers' Market booths this Season, as well as vendors selling a variety of "home grown" crafts. Flea
Market organizers also hope that a few more--and unique--food trucks will set up at the Flea Market this year--every weekend--or just on select Saturdays and/or Sundays of the Food Truck owners' choosing.
