The Belleville Flea Market (AKA the Belleville Farmers Market) is a Wednesday tradition in Mifflin County!
Featuring a colorful array of permanent buildings and temporary pop-up tents, you can buy just about anything at the Belleville Flea Market, including baked goods, produce, quilts, antiques, tools, housewares, and clothing.
What makes the Belleville Flea Market different from many other flea markets is the large presence of Amish, both vendors and customers.
Belleville sits at the heart of the “Big Valley”, a 25 mile-long Amish stronghold along Route 655, between Reedsville and Mill Creek.
Amish farms and Amish businesses can be found up and down the Big Valley, and every Wednesday many of them bring their wares to the flea market for “Sale Day”.
Of course there are plenty of non-Amish (or “English” as the Amish call us outsiders) vendors and customers as well.
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.
Antique-aficionados will find plenty to look at.
There’s generally a few vendors selling discount tools, toys, and miscellaneous household goods as well.
Where to Eat at the Belleville Flea Market
Considering it’s been in business since the 1960s, Marge’s Lunch at the flea market has to be doing something right!
The Hay Loft is another option, located upstairs (in the hay loft) in an old barn on the premises.
Hours and Directions
The Belleville Flea Market takes place on Wednesdays starting around 7 am, from spring through fall, with the weather and temperatures often dictating when the vendors pack up for the day.
It’s not uncommon on a hot summer day to see vendors starting to leave around 11 am, so your best bet is to try and get there no later than 10 am.
The flea market takes place on the 10-acre site of the Belleville Livestock Auction, located at 26 Sale Barn Ln, Belleville, PA 17004.
So if you’re looking for a unique blend of great deals and Amish culture, check out the Belleville Flea Market some Wednesday morning, and be sure to grab a Whoopie pie for the ride home!
