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.
