Flee Market Finds

Love a great flea market? Have a passion for all things aquatic? Then head here for one of our favorite annual events – the Upper Keys Gigantic Nautical Flea Market, a tremendous, two-day weekend event (Feb. 22 – 23) at Founders Park. Now in its 19th year, this sprawling treasure trove of maritime must-haves ranges from boats (new and used), dive gear and marine equipment to fishing tackle, sundresses and artwork. The mix of vendors gives this fun outdoor flea market a relaxed, come-stay-a-while vibe. Come early for the $5 all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast, then wander through the wares of 200+ vendors. Best of all, this Rotary-sponsored event raises money for scholarships for college-bound kids in the Upper Keys.

Address: Founders Park, MM 87
