What makes the Belleville Flea Market different from many other flea markets is the large presence of Amish, both vendors and customers.

What to Buy at the Belleville Flea Market

One of the main draws to the flea market in the summer months is the Amish-grown produce, at prices you simply will not find in any grocery store (and generally of much better quality as well).

There’s even a produce auction Wednesday mornings, if you’re looking to buy large quantities for canning, a restaurant, or resale.

I don’t think I’ve ever left this flea market without a few Whoopie pies in my bag, and the selection of other baked goods like pies and breads is excellent as well.
