Brimfield Antique Show

HOME » Brimfield Antique Show

Antique mecca you want to go to once


Brimfield is located on the outskirts of Boston.
Here in Brimfield the antique market is held three times a year.
It is said to be the largest in the United States, with 5,000 exhibitors gathering.
It is located along Route 20, the main street of Brimfield.
Exhibitors do not deploy in indoor booths, but exhibitors build tents and sell along the street.

It feels like a big festival in a rural town, and it has a very good atmosphere.
There are a wide variety of items for sale, and various items are on sale.
It's like finding bargains.

Tableware such as Fire King, Pyrex, antique cloth, retro furniture, posters and calendars, accessories and used clothes.
It even sells traffic lights and road signs.
There are also light snack shops in the stalls, where you can find bargains while eating american-style fast food such as hot dog and coke.
Traders seriously talk about business, and I think that it is an antique market that tourists can enjoy.

1 Main St, Brimfield, MA 01010 US


Regarding to my visit, When I left Japan and arrived at Boston Logan International Airport, I rented a car to Brimfield.
Public transportation to the venue of the Brimfield Antique Show has a means of using a bus, but there is no bus stop near the venue,
You will have to use a taxi after getting off the bus.
It is not realistic because it is quite troublesome.

It is about 100km about 1.5 hours from Hartz Rental Car Office at Logan International Airport to Brimfield.

It is a good opportunity to experience the history of those days.
Farm jobs, shops of the time, and charming homes.

I visited the Sturbridge and Brimfield on the outskirts of Boston.
Both were good old country towns, and it was a time to feel the history.
Later, I returned to Boston and enjoyed a city tour of Harvard University and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.
