Georgetown Flea Market: what do users think?


Jake Juros: The Georgetown Flea Market is a great Sunday activity for friends and family. There are some vendors who are there regularly and some who show up every so often. There's a lot of fun clothing, accessories, decor, and miscellaneous things. I highly recommend going at least once a month to see what vendors have to offer!

Matilde C Calderon: An organized flea market where you can find unique and ancient jewelries, coins, and clothes. Most of the venders there are friendly and patient. You can also find a lot of amazing and talented artists with their artworks/paints there for sale. It is worth to visit if you are happen to be in DC on Sunday.

Mark Pietrzykoski: Great place to get fantastic values. Furnish or decorate your home with unique pieces that don't come from a chainstore

Paul Spiller: Despite the decline of fleamarketing in general, this one maintains a higher standard than most! It's a great place to find quality merchandice at bargain prices!

Daryl Hairston: Plenty to shop here at the Georgetown Flea Market! Especially at KAT's Reussi Modern & Vintage Shop. I not only have a long friendship with Kat, I have purchased, and worn many of her modern and vintage clothing pieces, shoes, belts, shirts and hats. I dig her collectibles as well as her classic furnishings, coins, artwork, bric-a-brac and more... I have shopped and done runway shows with her since our San Diego days... Kat's no nonsense approach to fashion, is hip and rich, with an elevating sense of success and style, always with a nod to the old and new. Kat's Kollection immediately garners attention and admiration of the fashionable shopper, those with an eye toward acquiring and wearing modern and vintage art... eclectic furnishings, collectibles, treasures, that easily blend current and classic wear & go styles of today, yesterday, and tomorrow's ...trendsetters... ...Check out Kat's Reussi, now open at the Georgetown Swap Meet... see you Sundays -KR

Lia Summers: Beautiful things everywhere and it's of good deals on kilims and artwork

Janet Michelson: Lovely little market with mostly smaller items today. Plenty of antiques and vintage. Got some great Pyrex, which was the goal. Extremely happy.

Cameron Sweener: This was sooooooooo much bigger than I anticipated!! I’m definitely going back next week!!

Joann Williams: I can't say much because I never been there but would love to get a spot with them

Mike O'Bryant II: FRONT TO BACK A GREAT MARKET! Great dealers, great prices and great Area! Best stands are in front right by the bus stop and arnd the back alley!!

Dupont Little Flea Market: what do users think?


Jeff Sauri: Not to be confused with the Farmers Market two blocks away, the flea market is pretty small. But all the vendors are super friendly and the quality of product is good. My friend bought some jewelry. I bought some crystal coupe glasses. Definitely a great visit for a lazy weekend when it's nice out.

Elizabeth F. Stewart: Dupont Little Flea Market is a great spot to find unique and useful items. From whimsical to practical, this market offers a fun, eclectic range of pieces including period artwork, vintage housewares and antique Asian rugs, as well as local contemporary arts and crafts. The owner is very welcoming, knowledgeable and community-minded. It's a nice addition to the mix of Dupont Circle's offerings and just a short block from the wonderful Farmers' Market.

Amanda Fagerblom: I have purchased over a dozen or so items from John at the Dupont Little Flea Market and they make my home. Carefully curated items and unique pieces from the tiniest corners of the world and Washington, D.C. makes it a go-to for personalized gifts and home decor. It’s the perfect neighborhood spot with friendly faces and Gin the cat!

Jared Porter: Very small, only a few booths, but unique selection of items. Friendly people.

Sue Grolton: Went with my sons. Nice selections and good prices too.

Flea Market At Eastern Market: what do users think?


Kev- keepingitreal: The Outdoor Flea Market at Eastern Market Offers a variety of vendors with some live music. Great place to visit and shop. Street Parking is limited, but you can park in the underground parking garage at 777 C St. SE located at the rear of the Trader Joe’s & The Resident at Eastern Market Building for a hourly fee.

Art Anderson: The Flea Market at Eastern Market in Washington DC is an excellent place to spend a few hours on any Sunday. We especially enjoyed visiting Phoebe and Mark's place, The Frederick Candle Company. Phoebe and Mark's smokeless Soy Candles with or without wonderful scents, soaps, bath-bombs and notions are expertly made and marketed joyfully as the two of them are obsessed with perfection in their product. Be sure to visit Frederick Candle Company the next time you are in DC.

Jamila Jenkins: Eastern Market and the Flea are by far my favorite locations on the weekend for local DC finds. They have regular vendors and new local vendors regularly which is nice so you can find your favorites all through out the year. Iv found some of the best churros in the city, beautiful Tunisian hand carved wood work and my favorite Chicago style butter cookies.

Mr Biwidjy Pierre: The place was clean.... 5 star The place had a lot of good stuff.... 5 star There was a lot of vendors from different backgrounds but barely a handful of African American but they did have a few Africans though. Their arts were amazing. I shared some in my pictures. There was a couple police officers very intimidating but I was there cor the arts. We end up buying the Indian dress which you can wear it in 20 different styles very creative.... 5 star for the Indian wrap dress/skirt ... Next time I go i need to make sure i have enough money cause them stuff were expensive.... 3 star on the prices....

McHales Online: Lots of art and crafts. The veggies looked beautiful. ...A great Saturday excision.

Robert Weinstein: Eastern Market and the Flea Market are truly an authentic National Treasure. Great stuff, from a large veriety of vendors, good street food, and a relly fun atmosphere. Luckly has not been yuppified.

Running Fry: You're sure to find a gem at the Flea Market even if you planned on browsing only. There are many great items to choose from and some vendors offer one-of-a-kind items you won't find anywhere else. The Flea Market is open every Sunday, rain or shine, from 10am-5pm and it's worth a visit despite bad weather. I have enjoyed shopping here since I was a child and have had the pleasure of sharing this experience with my own family. You won't be disappointed!

Tonnetta Dyson: Well lit at night plenty of restaurants and outdoor eating

Michelle Ettienne: Lovely Places to visit and shop. Lots of interesting vendors. A staple in Washington DC shopping. A great place to spend a weekend taking in the food, art and culture. A great place for people watching . So much to experience. The vendors are wonderful especially on Sundays. Dog lovers are welcome. So many talented people here.

Max Castillo: Kind of just a bunch of junk, and not in a quirky kind of way. The Sunday flea market by the Georgetown Safeway at least has interesting stuff that I would consider buying, which can't be said about the Eastern market one. Also, some man selling knock-off art prints at high prices came out his tent to tell me I'm not allowed to take photos, which was kind of rude.

Soufside Market: what do users think?


Austin Graff: Soufside Market is a Saturday flea market from 10am-4pm in an empty parking lot by a gas station in Fort Dupont near the border of Wards 7 and 8. It launched in August 2020 to help support black-owned businesses throughout the D.C. region. Every week, they pick fourteen vendors to come to the market. That means you can go back and experience new products. When we went, they had a few food vendors, a handcrafted cocktail in a bottle company, other businesses and a DJ. Such a fun market!

CARAMELkimmie Kim: Does this flea market sell yellow watermelons?

Washington Blvd Marketplace: what do users think?


Michael Faulker: This place is horrible if you’re looking for tools. Almost every single vendor there is charging almost 1.5-2X of what the item sells for even in Home Depot. I should of listened to the reviews. Don’t even waste your time if you’re looking for tools. Literally even had the nerve to try to double up their money from Harbor freight. They must get a lot of clueless ppl here

Richard Pahl: Plenty of tools for sale. New and used. Also lots of cell phone accessories. They have live chicks, chickens, hens, ducks, and birds for sale for farming, or as pets. (please help save the animals)

Eric Mitchell: This so called Flea market is too small and the patrons there were rude and will walk through you if you don't move. This place truly was bad.

Douglas Sosa: Parking is always a problem but ones you are parked you are good to go.the market is clean, you can find anything here, there is no social distancing so you have to guear a mask at all times.

Glenn Williams: First time going to this flea market. It was nice not real crowded, the tools r cheaper to buy from. A regular store but everything else the prices r ok

Superman Casting: Wonderful weekend market with worlds of selection, awesome prices, and beautiful people sharing culture with one another

Christopher Carey: Very well stocked flea market. Lots of clothes, boots and tools. I mean lots.

chris hirsch: Its definitely one of the you can find it here places i have never went looking for something and couldnt fond it at this flea market

Chris Boosalis: great deals great prices can find just about anything your looking for

Calypso N' Roux, LLC: Family oriented. Vast variety of options for any shopper. Multiculturalism at its finest. Saturday is packer than Sunday. Masks are required to enter the building.

Kenneth Wilkinson: Good day today yes my experience at the market make all of our own items jewelry room dividers paintings me and my sister come check us out prices are very very low see you there

Carmen Hunt: It was an interesting place in there. I must live under a rock b/c I never new about this market. It's neat , it has many different micro stores like I guess you can rent. Some people have art, some people are selling,appliances , there's a seamstress, she was very pleasant. Anyway I guess it's like an indoor farmers or flea market I never knew existed. These are the little places we need to support. The possibilities are endless. Yet, remember Creativity is key!

Cynthia McCormick: Went to visit this market from all the good reviews. Went once around and left. Dirty and felt like we were in prison with all the galvanized fencing between shops. Way over priced. Couple of shops on outside that seemed nice. Waste of time. Returned to Alexandria to thrift store on King street and that was great.

Julie Florian: Wow this place completely turned around!!!! Looks great and greats shops and food!!! Papi’s Chicken best chicken and burritos and Blue Water Caribbean dishes are to die for!!!!!! Come visit. Family Dollar coming in April and small owner shops that are very quaint!!!!

Joann Williams: Called and got no answer or voicemail 🙄

Jessica Baldree: Very unhappy me and my Husband came all the way from Rosedale on 695 and it advertised 60 shops might of been 5 and they were simular.Like 1 antique shop a few clothes boutique s and a restaurant in side.NOT IMPRESSED

Taylor Dickerson: I have been going to this place with my mother since I was little and it has a very homey feeling. I recommend the jewerly place, "Anne's Place", it has nice one of a kind jewerly at a good price

Percy M.: Lovely place, friendly people and great merchandise you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere (even online).

Tanesha Butler: Some good stores. The resturant inside very clean and food is great especially the desserts.

Vanessa King-Hardy: Most of the stores are gone, due to renovations, but there are a few vendors left to go check out.

The Big Flea Market: what do users think?


Heather Hembrey: The Big Flea Markets are the antiquing and collecting highlights of my year. It’s fun to see and buy from vendors I know, and to buy from vendors I haven’t met before. The Big Flea Market atmosphere is always exciting. I look forward to each event and often take friends with me (masked for now, of course!) Thanks for the fun and antique hunting thrill, Big Flea Market. I’ll be at the Dulles Expo Center in January!
Response: Thank You for your support!!!

Patty Lasko: This show is not to be missed. Antiques/collectibles, jewelry (I like Native American made), textiles (pillows, table cloths, purses) and paintings from all eras are in abundance. I also like the furniture, odds and ends and things I'm not expecting. Go, go, go
Response: :)

Rachael Smith: I've visited the DC Big Flea twice this past year and it does not disappoint! The variety of vendors is amazing and there are varying price ranges, so there is truly something for everyone. I take my 8 year old daughter with me and she loves it as well! Can't wait to return and see what goodies await in 2022.
Response: Hope to see you again soon.

Carol McGuire: The DC Big Flea Market is GREAT! I haven't missed one in years. I've found so many wonderful things there to add to my different collections. I wouldn't miss this market for anything....I'm usually near the front of the line waiting to get in as soon as they open! Give it a try....you'll love it!
Response: :))))

Christopher Suranna: Take a walk down memory lane and enjoy all The DC Big Flea has to offer. Make sure to bring your good walking shoes as you will have so many isles of treasures to see from vendors all across the globe. You may find something from your past or something you never even knew you needed. Tons of treasures from .50 to 50K are just waiting to be found. This is a perfect place to spend a wonderful weekend afternoon. But remember the early bird always has best selection so don't be surprised by the long lines on that first day at the opening of the show. Highly recommend checking it out at least a couple of times a year.
Response: :)

Kristine Hatton: The D.C. Big Flea is one of my absolute favorite events. Always find so many amazing things. I had so much fun with my aunt when she took me every year. I only wish she were still here to enjoy it with me. I haven't been to one since she passed, but I'm going this year and I'm gonna try my hardest to have fun for her.

Stella Mategrano: We've been going to this fabulous market for the past few years and have loved every minute of it! From the friendly gentleman who takes the tickets at the entrance to the welcoming vendors and other shoppers, it's just such a great way to spend to spend a fun Mom & daughter Saturday! We've been fortunate to have met some incredible vendors both local and as far away as New York, New Jersey, and Florida. We always come home with a few amazing finds each time we visit and we look forward to each and every Big Flea Market event! Stella & Paula Mategrano
Response: Thanks for being a loyal Customer!

Leanne Condren: This antique show truly has everything. From Bakelite to old tools to vintage toys; I’m always particularly on the lookout for unique estate jewelry and boy does this show deliver. Vendors are polite and willing to answer questions. If you love antiques and are looking for something to do on the weekends the DC Flea is held, I recommend heading up to the Dulles Expo Center.
Response: Thanks!

Karen Bryant: This is the best show ever! I always find something good! The staff are super nice, the show is run well and the vendors are friendly and willing to negotiate prices. There are $50 door prizes drawn several times during the show. There is a wide variety of antiques, a little bit of something for everyone!
Response: :)

P A: The best flea market in the area! Plenty of parking and a great variety of vendors in a huge indoor space. You can find anything from furniture, jewelry, housewares, wall art and antiques at all price points. Worth the drive from downtown DC and we always walk away with something for our apartment. Highly recommend!

Eastern Market: what do users think?


Sachin Thomas: Many miss this place while exploring the capital, but it's a nice little market with old town feel. You can walk along the stores and purchase unique items. There are several cafes too, to have breakfast or lunch

Renee Moore: So I got some amazing things from the market today .... Heirloom tomatoes, some funky string beans and great corn on the cob. Also handmade soap that some people said was a must try, I'll post the veggies later guys because I packed them away for cooking tomorrow but here are some other photos I took. Enjoy

Ruth Bonacci: I love markets. We visited on a Tuesday afternoon. It was not too busy. We got lunch at one of the places inside the market. It is rather small compared to other markets that I have been to. I saw fresh fish, angus beef, produce, bakery, sweets, and prepared foods you could eat outside. This was a nice place to stop for lunch!

Jessica McNutt: Eastern Market is a great place to go. During the week you can go inside for high quality meat, fish, poultry, fruit,vegetables and dine-in/carry out prepared food. On the weekend, when I really love to stop by, there is an extensive farmers market with all sorts of amazing local vendors.

Shannon A. McGhee: Was wowed. VERY NICE ESTABLISHMENT. I purchased a few pieces of cake from a stand, and I might say it was pretty darn good. The pineapple upside down cake was hitting. I also tried their sweet potatoe cake. They've earned a new customer. Yes!!!!!yes I love sweets.

Amelya Sjahlim: I have been coming here two weekends in a row for the flea market. There are always new products or stalls to be found; creative art pieces, handmade jewelry, candles and bath bombs.

Marrento The Wandering Sage: I'm only giving 4 stars because I never actually go inside the market. I just like to stroll through the vendors outside on the weekends. Tons of original art, pottery, handmade clothing, lotions (Sunah Blu 😍), vinyl, and other things for the home. If you're lucky, you'll catch some live sax or violin paying.

ivana gobbo: Beautiful place! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the overall experience. You can find fresh veggies, fruits, fish, poultry, beef, pork, beef... They also have flowers, dessert, breakfast, lunch, crafts, art, clothes... Everybody is so nice, the architecture it’s spectacular! We went this Sunday and the weather was perfect!

Harry He: Eastern market is one of the hidden gems in DC. the crab cake at the diner is a must try. Also a perfect place for fresh meat, seafood, vegetable, and fruits. Farmers market nearby on weekends also host many local businesses with great products.

Scott Hayes: Farmers market is full of fun options from a wide variety of vendors. The many restaurants and stores also offer you the chance to pickup whatever you might need for day to day life

Clothes Encounters DC: what do users think?


Libby Gill: Love, love, love the range of items and the personal styling help I receive every time I visit Clothes Encounters. As both a customer and a consigner, I'm so happy buying and selling there. I just splurged on a gorgeous fox coat and I couldn't be more pleased with the shopping experience, the coat and the price!
Response: Thank you Libby!!!!

Colleen Dougherty: Went in for the first time and left with three amazing dresses. Shopping as a person bordering plus and straight sizes can be tricky at best when shopping at stores that have regular stock, let alone consignment but I popped in on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful as you browse. The shop is adorable and has a great range of styles and sizes. The jewelry counter was especially fantastic and I can't wait to stop by again!

Abbey Linsk: This place is a gem! I stop by whenever I can to see what they have. They carry great brands -- everything from J.Crew to St. John! I got a classic red Burberry dress from here for just $80! Store is clean and employees are just lovely!

Shefa Ahsan: Rather lovely experience. I happened to have some time on me and walked inside simply to browse. I've been to many second hand clothing stores but there's a warmth and hospitality in this place as soon as you're greeted at the door. Customer service is 10/10. Friendly conversations all around, so many regulars, and if you're new (like me) they leave you feeling like you need to come back asap. With regards to the actual store, they are the most organized, I had no problem finding my size. Everything was so clean and the prices were so reasonable. I left with 4 pieces from Ann Taylor and J.Crew for the price of one T-shirt at either of those stores. (But they also had a variet of styles to fit all kinds of preferences). I didn't intent to buy anything, but the selection, the kindness, and the overall experience gave me alot more than the pieces I left with. I don't even write reviews but I knew I had to for this place and the lovely ladies who own/work there.
Response: Thank you Shefa, your review means the world to us!!!

Bart Zwaard: A wonderful store staffed by lovely people. There is always something fantastic to find in this consignment shop. I love their jewelry selection and it is my go to spot for finding gifts for my wife. Everyone at the counter is so helpful and they really take the time to help find the perfect item you are looking for.
Response: Thank you!!! We love helping people find the perfect gift!!

Rajni Rao: Favorite second hand store in the district! I have found items at all price points that are in exceptional condition. There's a broad enough range to appeal to all tastes, and these ladies really treat customers like family. Stop in if you're a vintage fiend!
Response: Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Valerie Sans: This is my absolute favorite consignment shop to shop at in the district. They always have incredible items, if you're willing to "treasure hunt". Prices are very reasonable given the quality and brand names that they carry (Stuart Weitzman, Burberry, Gucci, Theory, Helmut Lang to name a few). The owner is very pleasant and helpful towards shoppers. Unfortunately the owner's kindness does not apply towards sellers. I've brought in many (high quality, brand name) items for their consideration, only to be insulted. I absolutely understand that not every item will be accepted, but it is entirely unnecessary to insult the seller. I have been on the receiving end of many rude, snide remarks about how out of style my items are. Again, it's totally fine to decline a seller's items, but a simple "no" pile would suffice. This is what other consignment shops in the area do. I was also mocked for going in to collect a small amount (<$10) that was on my account with a comment like "I guess every dollar counts, huh". In the future, I will just donate my clothing or sell on Poshmark to avoid being insulted by the owner here again. There are a few reviews that echo this sentiment, and I urge the owner to take note. After all, you need people to donate their clothes in order to be a viable business. TLDR: great experience as a buyer, unpleasant experience as a seller
Response: Valerie - I cannot tell you how sorry I am and how much I cannot remember any part of the exchange you describe. I cannot recall ever saying 'every dollar counts' to someone collecting a payout. I agree it would be hugely insulting, and that it is never ever my wish to be disrespectful or insulting to anyone. I have said 'every dollar counts' when people apply their account balance for store credit though, because $10 off a purchase can really make a difference, and even if it is $10.00 that does decrease the bottom line. Customers love hearing the total owed is decreased by the money they've accumulated selling their clothes. We used to take a little of everything before Covid hit. We could cast a much wider net before we needed to maintain a 5 person maximum capacity in the shop. Truth be told, we don't think we'll get back to whatever the new 'normal' will be until there are more people inside the store than those waiting to get in. We're happy to do this during the pandemic to help keep everyone safe, but this filters down to what we can and cannot take for consignment. Most consignors do want to know why we reject their clothes. Therefore I offer an explanation to help them adjust what they bring in the next time. Your point is well taken, I will ask people if they want guidance to understand why we reject one item and take another. To streamline the process we suggest consignors email some photos of their consignment, it saves time and prevents unnecessary trips to the shop. If you ever want to give us a second chance, this option might work really well. Most important though I sincerely apologize for making you feel badly in our store. This is not okay and I promise to avoid a repeat. Clothes Encounters is usually such a happy place, we take an enormous amount of pride in this, it is a part of core to be kind, welcoming and respectful to all. We love our community, our consignors, our shoppers, our location, the market -- everything and everyone. I am sorry you had a bad experience with us and wish you all the best in future. Gail

Julia Beatty: This place is truly a gem in the middle of the Eastern Market area. They have a huge variety of consignment items in wonderful shape, lots to browse! On my first visit there, I found a pair of Cole Haan nude flats for only $10! Will definitely be back to shop again soon.
Response: Thank you so much Julia!!! Enjoy your cute shoes!!!

Karen Petersen Finch Whitworth University: I try to stop by here once a week. I have made great finds for reasonable prices! There is a range available from designer down to more basic (Clark’s shoes for 20.00). The buyers have a great sense of quality and style. Merchandise moves through more quickly than in some small stores. But best of all are the women who work and shop there. They lift my spirits every time.
Response: Thank you!!!!

Deb B: Great store! I often consign there and usually get a fair price for my items. Gayle and her team are always very nice although they get busy during certain hours. I have found a lot of really unique items there I will treasure forever. Like any other consignment store sometimes inventory is amazing, and other times it’s just OK. But that’s the reason to keep going back.
Response: Thank you Deb B - weekends can be very busy - and we always wish we had more dressing rooms!!!

FRESHFARM Dupont Circle Market: what do users think?


Ryan Rieboldt: Excellent farmers market! Plenty of fresh produce, baked goods, meats, cheeses, coffee, homemade soaps, etc and yet I chose to try a lump crab cake, which I unfortunately forgot to note the name, but it was distinctively delicious. Even in the dead of the winter cold the market was buzzing! Need to make a point to get back in the early Spring when the weather is even better

Jason Camis: AmazIng farmers market on Sunday morning at DuPont Circle. Excellent variety of vendors, from coffee and breakfast to produce, cheese, dairy, baked goods and more. Gets busy so go early, but not too early as many vendors won’t start selling until 830 on the nose.

Nate B: We really enjoyed this place. They have a great variety of fruits and vegetables. There are also food and bread vendors. It was very busy on a Sunday. I would definitely recommend this place.

J Foodgeek: This is one of the flagship farmers markets for the DC area. I recently read an article that said the top Market in every state, and they didn't count DC at all, which is a shame because I think they would have picked this market. Also, sometimes you get lucky and find things here that you wouldn't see elsewhere, like quince, chestnuts, pawpaws, orange watermelon, Cambodian eggplant, Thai basil, persimmons, shiso, etc. My recommendation is to always go right when the market is opening and go to the vendors that have items that sell out quickly.... Like dodo farms, or the seasonal kombucha flavor at number one Sons, for empanadas at Chris's. Then you can actually walk the market and see what else you find. The lines get longer and it gets more crowded later in the day. I've attached photos from the spring to the fall to give you an idea of some of the things that I found interesting.

Steve Aupperle: They have expanded this Market to include a block of Massachusetts Ave. Added a lot more food options. Some of the vendors are setting up their shade tents 4 feet into the center farther than necessary. In some spots there is only room for two people passing at a time (one in each direction). The line in each direction is way to slow when it is busy. Other than that, this is a great farmers market with a lot to choose from.

Katie Ambrose: I go here almost every week for fresh produce, meats, and dairy products. Go early to miss the large crowds, especially if the weather is nice. In the winter months, the vendor selection is much smaller and they wrap up earlier, around one. In the summer months, the selection wraps a couple of blocks and they wrap up around three. Prepared foods are good but quite expensive - I would recommend Breakfast burritos from Taco Loco, bagels from Call Your Mother (not as good as NJ but good for DC), pastries from Seylou, or a breakfast sandwich from Hog Haven Farm. Don’t miss the separate but related DuPont Little Flea Market next to Firehook Bakery for great vintage home goods and clothing. They have a neighbor table you can rent out for $25 if you have some things you want to get rid of.

A Myers: Great selection of vendors to choose from. All fresh. From Pleitez produce farm I got the most beautiful purple peppers, purple spring onions, salsa kit with instruction on how to prepare and the most amazing orange tomatoes. Juicy peaches and cheeries from Orchad Valley and fresh herbs from Dodo farms. So much to choose from you won't be disappointed.

bud Jenkins: A true farmers market with a large selection. Most vendors were actual small farms and not commercial fakes. Great selection, although a bit pricey

Papa Stauth: I would give this experience 17 stars. You can people watch and get a meal (self assembled) with drinks and dessert...quite possibly the best and largest Farm Market I have been to.

Frances Whalen: Wow..Its so much to see and sample!! Go early! Breads, pastries, pasta, cheese, fruits & veggies!! And Alcohol!! And who can pass up pizza in a oven(sorry forgot a pic)..very good way to spend a Sunday!

Mercedes Bien Vintage: what do users think?


Vicky Good: I could go on and on on how much I loved this place. There's an amazing curated collection of vintage high quality clothing and jewelry for men and women. You can tell the owner has a great eye for style and silhouettes. She is super helpful as well as very knowledgeable and can easily tell what would fit you. I also loved the years written on the tag to inform me about the history of each piece.

nicole lamoreaux: She has a really great selection of items for men and women (more women than men though). One quick thing is that I would recommend giving them a call before you head over to confirm their hours for the day.

Peter Lewin: Was in there with some friends and tried on an item which was hastily grabbed by someone who I can only describe as a friend of the owner ? And put behind the cashier Bc she was afraid it would get stolen ? As if. Mercedes (the owner) was lovely but this wench was foul. Decent collection, unwelcoming atmosphere.

Whitney Jarrett: Really good finds and super nice owner. Will definitely return!

Kelly Morrissette: The owner is absolutely amazing, she is a sweetheart, keeps an eye out for things that she'll know you love, and she gets to know you as well. Absolutely love going in every time I get a chance!!! She has a fabulous collection, yes, this is not the "cheapest" place, but she also makes sure to keep everything in fantastic loving care and will spend time with you helping you find the best pieces. I do not shop vintage for the "cheapest" I shop vintage for well made. She will also give you fantastic suggestions on how to wear it! Love love love this place!

drusefton: Awesome selection. If you tell Mercedes what you're looking for, she'll keep an eye out for you. Quality vintage going back several decades, both men and women. Shoes and jewelry too. Check it out.

Deanne Witzke: Lovely shop, lovely owner! Worth a trip to see this beautifully curated selection of vintage clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories.

Sarah Casson: Best vintage shop in DC! Beautiful and well-curated pieces from the 30s to the 90s

Christian Dutilh: Love Mercedes-- even for men! Found my tux here and had it altered. One of my best purchases ever.

Takeisha Jefferson: i can't say enough about vintage just know that i adore this store and the selection they carry.

Prevention of Blindness Society Look Again Resale Shop: what do users think?


B Sadegh: I stopped by on Friday to browse and there was an older lady working at the store who made everyone feel very uncomfortable to be there. She was yelling at another employee and he was trying to ask her to go somewhere else to talk and she was having none of it. I decided to leave the store when she started to throw things at him and getting physical because I was worried that she might start attacking people in the store. It was getting a little scary and I really should have called the police. I've previously had good experience buying things from the young man who was getting abused and he was friendly and knowledgeable. I have never seen this other lady before but she was UNHINGED. I don't know what happened that day or if it's pandemic stress or what but no one deserves to be treated that way and customer shouldn't have to witness something like that. I felt so bad for the guy and hope he is OK.

Annie Jernigan Goldberg: I love the shop. The staff are friendly. The store is always full of stuff in every room. It has books, dishes, frames, and photos, rugs, and toys.The stuff is always a great price and there are wonderful discounts. They have a furniture shop across the street that has lots of clothing. Sometimes you can find vintage clothing at a good price. It is a good place to volunteer. Definitely reccomend the shop.

Alice L.: I really wanted to support this cause! When I visited recently, the staff was friendly and helpful, but I got the impression the store would be much more successful if the "well-worn" and "outdated" items were culled from the store. There are actually two buildings - the main store and an annex. The main store was crammed full of vintage glassware and china that is hard to sell and takes up a lot of room. China dishware with metal trim is not popular any more because it cannot be microwaved, so those pieces need to be priced low or donated elsewhere. The annex is potentially a diamond in the rough - but it was so stuffed full of furniture that it was uncomfortable to look around. There were some unfortunate donations accepted here - large, dirty, dusty pieces of furniture that likely will not sell. A few furniture items literally had stains; I am sorry people made donations like that as it creates burdens for a shop like this. There also are some vintage carved wooden sofas that are damaged but likely have value--but only to people who know how to reupholster. My recommendation would be to clear out the furniture as it causing the shop to look too full and it is gathering dust and making it hard to move around. Also, I looked at the the clothes. The clothes were smashed together on wire hangers on the racks--all types, mens, womens, beautiful cashmere and wool items, vintage dresses, etc. mixed with very worn-looking mens' t-shirts and lumberjack shirts all smushed together. It actually made me reluctant to donate my finer clothes here, although that was my intention. I truly hope to see improvements on my next visit as I like to support services for vision-impaired people..

Angelika Stablow: Always fun to visit and see what's new! Today I found a set of three rustic cow bells that look exactly like the Alpenhaus bells in their current catalog except that all three at PoBS cost less than the price of one in the Sundance catalog!

Daniel Beavin: I have visited twice in the last 2 months and both times the shop was not open at 10 as advertised. I waited over an hour both times but nobody showed up to open it. Many customers came to the front door and were disappointed.

Alex Praeger: I'm a big thrift store fan and this is my favorite thrift store. Located inside a small Victorian cottage, the rooms are crowded with all kinds of treasures. Each room is organized into different categories. One room is books, another glassware, women's clothing etc. Some rooms are divided into different categories: mens ware, children's toys, mugs, record albums and such. They have a fantastic selection of jewelry, vintage and costume of various eras and styles. I have found a variety of lovely tea pots. There is one room devoted to women's clothing with high end and vintage pieces waiting to be discovered. This is a great place if you are looking for props or costumes for a play. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Recently they have added a second location which is open only on weekends just around the block for larger furniture.

Larissa Fuqua: If you are a treasure hunter like myself, this place is awesome. The prices are excellent and they have all kinds of goodies stashed all over the place. I have probably purchased more than twenty or thirty things here over the years... wall art, the coolest camping lantern turned lamp ever, vintage thermoses, books, etc. I've also made many trips where I've come back empty handed, but that's the treasure hunt for you. Definitely check it out!

Katie Calloway: This is an excellent thrift shop - you always find a wide variety of unique artwork, dining/dishes, vases, books, vintage clothing, and jewelry...stocked with new items almost every week. You go expecting to search through boxes and shelves, the store is small and packed, but they display as much as they can. Chat with the ladies behind the counter, they are very nice and can direct to anything that you are looking for specifically. This is not your average goodwill, the prices are not cheap, but it's not only for a great cause, but also you are getting vintage antiques that you would never find at an run of the mill thrift or consignment shop. I go to the farmer's market on Saturday and then walk across the street to browse each week.

That Brunette: Nice little thrift store. The prices are mostly thrift store prices with a few items priced for collectors. Not everything has a price so make sure to ask or it might be a surprise at the register. There are a few parking spaces outside the store but the lot fills quickly. The staff can be friendly or surly.

Hedy: Great for collectibles and costume jewelry, etc, etc. Customers love buying there. The organization provides great services.

Brumwell's Flea Market: what do users think?


Those Crazy Everharts: Had alot of fun at the carnival. Really enjoyed ourselves. Can't wait for it to come back. Plus at the flea market you can get some good deals. We'll worth the trip to check it out.

MoFo: If you like yard sales you love this place. A few vendors, but mostly just good old folks selling their junk. Personally I love rummaging through boxes looking for deals on things I could use. Great place to take the kids to learn to barter.

Father of five Mr. Dad: I went for the carnival with my two teenage boys and had a good time. Everyone who was with the fire department was really nice and helpful. Also the people who ran the games were very friendly The guys operating the rides though, slightly questionable to be fair.

Shirley Moorhead: This was the best carnival I have been to in years. I took my 4 yr old . One thing that would have made it the best carnival I ever have been to is if I had my 16 yr. Old grandson & my 10 yr. Granddaughter Charlie HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOB"S I LOVE YOU BUD

Bobby Wisner: This flea market was pretty decent they had a lot of good stuff different for good prices just don't buy the box of blueberries 90% of more bad a besides that my first impression ever seen a flea market in the dirt lot was that it was some rinky-dink flea market but they're pretty good stuff and it was pretty nicely price it would be a good idea to check it out if you're looking to Bargain shop

Lenny Bishop: Get there by 6AM for the best deals. They only have Mexican food, which is ok, but some people don't like it.

Joey Panuska: It's a great place except for the Latino trying to steal from our table early in the morning. Aside from that, we like selling our yearly finds here.

Shirley Smith: I go there alot .It has a lot of bargains.you can find great deals.You might have to travel a bit to get there but it worth your time saving you money when you bargin hunting for things.

Mike Maurer: Small vender group most of the same ones. Some of the pricing was high. Go there mostly for the fruit guy.

Carrie Campbell: It's a nice place to walk around and find treasures you didn't know you need or want. The veggie stand is so fresh. Definitely want to go back for that. I wish there were more vendors.

Dutch Village Farmers Market: what do users think?


Chris Macola: This was my first time here with my family and it is very nice. It was extremely crowded because they're only open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and we went on a Saturday morning, but the food is great. The food's really good and it's a good price. The people are friendly. It's in Upper Marlboro. We just recently moved and we're exploring and we really like this place. The only reason I only give it four stars is because they have furniture and pictures and other knick knacks but they are extremely expensive. However, it all seems to be really good quality. It's all handmade stuff but still, the prices they want are a little bit insane. Other than that we really liked it and we will be going back. They have a really great breakfast special for an hour each day that they're open, in the morning, for a $1.99. I can't vouch for the breakfast because we didn't get that, we got their chicken, but it sounds like a really good deal.

grace three: Variety of fresh food and produce. We purchased fresh and Smoked whole large Turkey Wings and Turkey legs quarters. For the ride home and lunch we purchased cooked Turkey wings and cooked 1/2 of a duck. Whole duck also available. From another Vendor we had delicious shrimp chicken salad. A menu Restaurant also has seating.

Crystal Banks: Love this place. Busy but not a long wait. Staff have great customer service and everything looks clean. Hours are until 6pm not 3pm. Parking is abundantly available. There was only a few stalls that did not accept EBT but splurge on the seeded watermelon, it's sweet and delicious. So worth it!

Jeff Rueckgauer: Usually go to the Georgetown or Laurel locations but happened to be in the area. Extremely disappointed. I needed lard and air dried beef. They don't carry lard. They were out of the beef. More limited selection of goods than the other locations. At least they had warm fresh soft pretzels. Unlikely I'll visit again.

Dei Roberson: Fresh maybe...sanitary I don't believe so. I'm in agreement with the observations regarding improper food handling techniques. Neither gloves or masks are worn. Raw uncooked food isn't handled with gloves either. The unfortunate truth is, it's never been a practice at these markets to do so. The main reason for not touching ready-to-eat foods with bare hands is to prevent viruses and bacteria which are present in your body from contaminating the food. Viruses and bacteria are invisible to the naked eye, but may be present on your hands if you do not wash them thoroughly, particularly after using the bathroom. The law prohibits bare hand contact with ready-to-eat foods and requires good hand washing by food service workers. There should be no exceptions made when it comes to public health and safety. Doesn't seem like the public objects, on any given day the market is open the parking lot it always at capacity🤔.

Karen Ellis: My daughter went there this past weekend and called me raving about the items for sale, specifically the banana nut bread and the zucchini bread. I requested a half loaf of each along with some green tomatoes. The banana nut bread was moist with good flavor, however the zucchini bread seemed to have been attacked by the salt fairy. This bread would have been good if someone hadn't gotten excited with the salt. I'll have to make a visit there myself to see what else they have, but PLEASE ease up on the salt!!

Mark Parker: Haven't been In a few years but still a great farmers market. So glad they widened the butcher section for better access. Don't leave without getting a pretzel they are made hot and fresh.

Marla holland: Love it everything ypu need under one roof!! I love the butcher always great selections and cuts. The deli has great salads and are great to have for good snack.The bakery is heavenly and everything you try is amazing

Janel Rossetto: Love this market for variety, old fashioned snacks, fresh veggies, jarred veggies/jams, fresh meats, and baked goods. Don't go hungry (you'll want everything)! You can get the traditional Dutch foods like shoefly pie, moon pies, beehive cake, potpies, homemade donuts, and chicken dumplings. Bring cash as not all do card. They also have a section for handmade items (furniture, fabrics, clocks, etc).

Victoria Walton: I just went grocery shopping there for the first time today and I was dissatisfied with almost everything I purchased. I purchased some Cajun seafood salad which was advertised to have both fish and shrimp in it along with the imitation crab meat only to find out that they only put imitation crab meat in it and there was not a bit of shrimp in it at all. That same stand also gave me some white potato salad and the guy behind the counter didn't even fill it up all the way. I noticed this while he was making it but didn't say anything and just let it go. I got three Donuts. One of them was delicious but the other one was so dry I had to microwave it for 20 seconds to get it soft (I haven't tried the third one yet). Then the main thing I went there for was the produce because I wanted to get it locally grown only to come to find out that they just shipped it in but seeing as how it's winter I should have figured that myself but at least a regular grocery store would let me use my EBT card where is most of their stands do not. Some of the strawberries I bought from them came a little pithy but I'm otherwise satisfied with all the other things that I purchased from them but I do not think it's worth the trip when there are several grocery stores closer to me that are more convenient for food purchases. I may go back during the summer time when they stock up with their own food that they grow themselves.

Unique: what do users think?


Abi Maghamfar: A place to donate unwanted items and buy used items from furniture to toys to kitchenware, clothes, shoes, books, DVDs, etc at reasonable prices. If you buying toys, puzzles and games or anything that have multiple pieces, makes sure all pieces are there as this has been one of the disappointing aspects of buying stuff here. The other disappointment is the lack of organization and cleanliness of the facility. Love the idea of recycling and reusing rather than sending them to the wasteland and Unique provides that opportunity.

Alice L.: Unique Thrift is a for-profit enterprise owned by Savers, which is owned by a private equity firm in the Seattle area. It is NOT a charity shop and does not donate its profits to charity. Their website clearly states: "Shopping in our stores does not support any non-profit." The company says it purchases donated items from some local non-profits; however, it does not release details on these buying deals. The company is large and owns many thrift stores around the country. I mention this because there are true charity shops in the area--including Goodwill, Urban Thrift, Salvation Army, church shops, etc.--that are actually charities and donate their profits to charity. Some of the real charity shops are even run by volunteers working for no pay in order to help the cause. A lot of people seem to think Unique is a charity and the attorney general in Minnesota has in the past accused this company of misrepresenting how much it gives to charity. So if you have lovely and near-new items to donate, I highly suggest donating them to authentic charity shops. I frequently shop the charity shops, but I also shop at Unique. Unique Thrift is still a worthwhile place to shop and I have found many nice items for good prices. It is pretty well managed and prices are marked clearly. The merchandise is generally clean and not damaged, although you have to examine your items carefully. There are 7-day exchanges but only for clothing and shoes. Be very careful buying anything else that might have defects, such as luggage, electronics, furniture, etc. Some items do have hidden damage so you have to look carefully. There are discounts here on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays only so those days tend to be crowded.

JJ Edwards: Its a huge thrift store, as afar as I know and for so many thrift store I had visited this is my favorite one. They have huge selection of clothes, shoes, toys, books, furniture, kitchen ware and many more. Worth to check out!

Sara O'Brien: I have been going to this place for years and always felt welcome, but today was the worst experience of my life. We were in line for self checkout, when I saw that register 18 was open, as I proceeded with my daughter to the register the woman that was in charged of self checkout named Charika told us, "come here because I cannot see what you ring there." We walked to the register that she told us and as I scanned this woman stands there staring at us scan each item. I was already getting upset because she was staring at us scan as if we were the only customers there or as if we were thieves. After scanning 7 items this woman proceeds to approach my bag and count the items that I had placed inside the bag to make sure it matched the amount of items on the screen. I felt that we were being treated as thieves. I got so upset, I asked for the manager, but she said no one was available, so I took a picture of her ID card. This woman stood staring at our register until we finished ringing every item as if we were thieves. People go to the thrift store for many reasons, but in no moment should they be harassed by anyone. This store needs to train its employees to be courteous and not target people

li garcia: Good thrift store. Nice selections of everything. All staff and personnel are nice and friendly except for the old lady at the register. Very mean ! Unfriendly! And the voice specially when she’s on the speaker. She’s always mad and unhappy person. I’m sure I’m not the only one noticing it!

Par and: It was my worst horrible thrifting experience ever. This Women Charika was extremely rude, and treated people as if they are thieves, it was traumatizing to see her digging into ppl's card at checkout and checking every single items aggressively. This store will go out of business soon, because of this women "Chaika", who enjoys harassing customers. Not to mention the store was extremely dirty, and messy.

Cynethea: This is a big store. They have household items, furniture, bedding, books, toys and more. I always leave there loaded up with great finds. It has a huge clothing section. I always find some of the best sweaters and tops. It's a great place to shop especially if you have limited funds. Tuesday is discount day. Check out lines move quickly. Team members are very pleasant.

That Brunette: High volume thrift store. Very busy with customers every day of the week. The turnover of stuff is high so, if you see something you like grab it. I've seen collectors and resellers in this store. Lots of kids playing in the toy section while the parents shop.

Ariel S.B.: My favorite thrift store! Yeah, some of the prices are just a little bit higher than your average goodwill, but the quality of items is so much better. I’ve seen brand new items from designer stores, sometimes with the tags still on them. Stuff is actually trendy and cute and not dated. They have clothes in every size, the selection is huge! Definitely visit if you’re looking to revamp your wardrobe.

Pr Katz: Love this place! Having a party? Get all the great Pyrex and serveware you need - have awesome BoHo mismatched fine china place settings, accessorize with cheap stuff from the craft store and outlet stores, and you've got a magazine worthy party photo at a price you can afford. Best of all? After the party, I box it up and redonate it back to the Great Stuff Stream (thrift store) for the next person. No new manufacturing, no waste, no piles of seldom used party supplies cluttering up the house. Perfect 👌🏼 Update: the masks are getting OLD! Self check out. Not shopping or donating here again.

Unique: what do users think?


Fredrick Omeniho: Unique is a good thrift store for dropping off your items that you no longer need ranging from clothes, kitchen wears, electronics, books, you name it. You also buy from items donated by others at a low price. Customer service here is also wonderful. I would say keep helping. Update: Unique has undergone some recent changes - sales automation and now you could attend to yourself but sales attendants are still around to help, coupons and perks have become more decent. Unique also has more inventories recently but you could walk in to donate more.

N: Had NO fitting room which seriously inhibits anyones ability to find quality items. Would have loved to get some jeans, shorts, etc. but felt uncomfortable buying when I can’t try on. To make matters worse, there are no returns, only exchanges within 14 days with original price tag attached. Well organized and good selection, though it’s hard to find items without trying on. The self checkout is also really convenient.

Karrington Greenlee: Clean and well organized however some of the clothes are dirty (stained not unwashed). They also have no place to try on and don't accept returns. The prices are good and you can definitely find good things if you're willing to take the time to look!

K Loftur-Thun: Used to be a great place to find quality things on a budget. Now that it's been redone, it's a turned into a bunch of overpriced, mediocre clothes that you can't even try on because they got rid of their fitting rooms and if you purchase anything, you can ONLY return it for store credit within 14 days (which they don't advertise! It's written in tiny legalese at the bottom of your receipt). Don't shop here unless you are 100% confident that you'll love what you're buying and it will fit perfectly, because as it is this is just a trap for your money.

Olmo Beherzt: Warning! They will sell counterfeit if you are looking for a bargain of an Vuitton purse. Avoid this, if legitimate you will over pay look for it in eBay if fake that has a negative value and it is illegal to sell it but Unique doesn’t discriminate and sells fake and genuine at same prices and more often it is going to be fake (again selling counterfeit is ILLEGAL unique managers should know better). Save your money… get elsewhere online is better because laws are applied rigorously.

Kathryn S: Wide variety of clothing and home goods, mostly at fair prices. It seems that they rotate their stock seasonally, i.e. sweaters are out in February, but not shorts. **There are no fitting rooms** but there are mirrors throughout the store to help you try on jackets/outerwear.

Robert Garrett: Major down-check after the store switched over to self-checkout. Normally, Tuesday is automatically a 30% discount for seniors' purchases. Guess what?! Even if you are a registered member and previously qualified without asking, for the discount, the self-checkout system is stupid and doesn't recognize senior status. Worse, when I brought it to the attention of one of the "assistants,"her response was "You have to tell us before you pay." What the heck? So I lost a10%discount because the system is faulty and the clerk doesn't want to bother with processing a refund Major negative marks for Unique! Odd, big store with a huge variety of clothing, shoes, accessories, household goods, furniture, knick-knacks, electronics, even games and sporting goods. Take your time to look around. But be careful. Remote controls are often missing from TVs, Stereos and other electronic devices. Also for some insane lack of reason, separated AC power supplies are frequently separated from their associated product. For example I found an Aerogarden hydroponic growing kit. Marked $19.99. what a bargain for a system that retails for about $130-150. Except.... No power supply! Thus no way to test to make certain that everything functions properly, and if you're lucky enough to find a replacement power supply (About $40-50) you stiil won't be able to return the unit if it doesn't work. Stupid, stupid, stupid. There's no other word for it. I'm getting used to the self-help checkout system. I think it makes customers more likely to be careless about cashing out, if you understand my meaning. Too many of Unique's goods are junk, trash. They are missing parts or are partially or entirely non-functional. I would be inclined to avoid any electrical appliances or electronics unless you really know what to test for and go over the product very thoroughly. My pet peeve for TV and audio gear is that they separate the remote controls and external power supplies from the devices they're intended to operate. How incredibly stupid and inconsiderate of the customer. Yes sometime you can buy a replacement remote or accessory. But more often the stereo or TV it BluRay player you just bought is crippled and useless. At least the store could try to keep pieces and parts together.. (and yes, I know, there are crude, thoughtless customers who open a retail package and toss the components aside, separating them so the next customer gets inconvenienced. You know if you're one and should be ashamed!) I have talked to a floor manager about selling defective merchandise and bit accepting their returns. His response was simple: he didn't care! What utter gall! The most important thing to remember is to take advantage of discount days and coupons for donations. This company is FOR PROFIT. Who know how much the Special Olympics actually benefits. I've never seen any public disclosures, have you? So save your money and your frustration by not buying anything that you can't be absolutely certain is in working order. One more observation. Their pricing scheme for the goods they sell appear to be completely random and without reason or rationale. My attached photographs show numerous glass flower vases, all essentially the same size and shape. Yet the prices range from $1.99 to $3.99, DOUBLE the reasonable lowest price. You'll find similar results in cookware (pots and pans) and even in small electrical appliances.

Sara Walthall: This place has gone down hill all self checkouts. We as customers are already bringing you in money and now we have to ring our 2 buggies full of stuff because only people with exchanges can go to the register that is really wrong will not be back always spend a couple hundred bucks each trip you all lost my business

nonya biznes: i call this place the walmart of thrift stores. it’s gigantic, filled with good deals, and speedy with self checkout. it’s impossible to come here and not find SOMETHING in your size. highly recommend. i drive over an hour to come here.

Danielle Gorsky: Management and employees are extremely rude and unprofessional. Manager is cocky about his position and disregards customer service. He talks down to customers when they ask questions and prefers to go against store rules. Employees are generally rude and pretend like you’re not there and have no manners. Selection is okay but store atmosphere is sad from everyone working there.
