This is a very cool outdoor flea market in New Milford, CT only 15 minutes north of the hotels where wedding guests will be staying. It takes place every Sunday morning opening at 7:00 for general admission ($2.00 per person). The TV show Flea Market Flip tapes episodes there almost every weekend. There is something for everyone in every price point from antiques, to collectibles, to socks (and great food trucks too)! This could be a really fun pre-wedding day morning activity!
