The Jamaica Avenue Outdoor Market

Jamaica AvenueThe Jamaica Avenue Outdoor Market opened in December, offering shoppers in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, NY a new shopping destination for all kinds of new and used merchandise. “We started the flea market on an open space on a busy street on Jamaica Avenue, right in the middle of a retail district, where there was previously an outdoor market,” says John Sanji, owner and manager of the flea market. “The location is really important. There are about 100 to 150 retail stores on this street, so it definitely is a shopping area.”

The flea market currently has 18 full-time sellers, with room for up to a total of 50 vendors at a cost of $300 per month for a 10 by 10 space. Vendors can only rent by the month, and the flea market is open seven days a week, from 9:30 am to 7 pm. For Sanji, the great location means that buyers and sellers are going to enjoy the experience that they have at the Jamaica Avenue Outdoor Market. “Right now, I’m just looking for some good vendors that have excellent merchandise that will attract the customers, and so far, people have really liked it,” he adds.

The Jamaica Avenue Outdoor Market is located at 163-18 Jamaica Avenue in Queens  (the intersection of Jamaica Ave. and 165th Street). For more information, call Sanji at 516-523-1099.

    The $300 monthly fee is high. I’m hoping the Jamaica Flea Market would consider offering a lower introductory price by the week for the first month to new sellers, keeping the vendor’s name on file. Then a vendor could see if their products do well in this market. The fact that Jamaica Avenue is saturated with retail outlets, a number of them offering bargains, can be a negative so you have to see if your stuff sells.

    I went to the Jamaica Flea Market before, and I bought really nice scarves. I went back but couldn’t find the person that sold the scarves. Can you reply back when she comes back to sell it? I tried looking for 100 stores.. but i only saw few. As soon as you enter and keep going forward and turn right, the lady was there. I want to know when she will be back. Thank You.

    I saw the scarf lady at the new flea market in Westbury on Brush Hollow Road. Great bargains & foods trucks too.
