We are open every Sunday from April through mid-December, including Sundays on ALL holiday weekends.

Every Sunday we invite you to come experience

a New England tradition, unlike any other.

Since 1976, Treasure Hunters, Antique Collectors, Farmers, Foodies, Up-cyclers, Deal Seekers and Entrepreneurs of all kinds have flocked to the famous Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, Connecticut every Sunday from April through December.




It all starts before the sun comes up. Vendors from all over the east coast make their way to the pre-dawn lineup. At 4:15am, the gates to the parking lot open and cars are queued up waiting for their turn to get loaded onto the field. Many of the loyal vendors of this community have been attending since the very start of this market in the 1970s.


However, every week there is a unique mix of old and new vendors bringing merchandise that captivates all the senses. By 6:55am, the field gates are closed and vendors are busy unloading their trucks and displaying their wares for the droves of buyers that come crashing through the gates at 7:00am seeking deals of every sort. On a typical Sunday, the vendor field is filled with over 500 vendors.

There are three categories of buyers that comprise the marketplace at the Trunk: Super-early Buyers, Early Buyers and Regular Buyers.


Super-early Buyers

The Super-early Buyers ($40 admission) are the hard-core deal seekers. These are the folks looking for that one-of-a-kind piece whose value is far-reaching and must be bought before anyone else lays their eyes on it. These committed individuals can be found on the field as early at 4:45am poking through vendors’ car windows with flashlights and making deals before these bigger ticket items even get unloaded. (The early bird really does get the worm in this case)


Early Buyers

Early Buyers ($20 admission) are no less committed to the treasure hunting experience, however they recognize that 5:45am is plenty early for them and there are still a plethora of treasures to find and deals to be made amongst the over 500 Vendors being loaded onto the field.


Regular Buyers

Regular Buyers ($2 admission) are welcomed on the field at 7:00am. The morning sunshine illuminates the vast market as the smells of the breakfast sandwiches and mini-doughnuts fill the air…happiness abounds.
