The Patapsco Flea Market is open every Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to allow existing vendors to restock their merchandise and to assist new vendors to reserve their space for the weekend.
Spaces Available to Rent
Indoor Tables: One 3x8 ft. table that rents for $25 per day. If you need to rent a table with an electrical outlet or would like to leave your merchandise with your table after the market closes, you will be charged a nominal fee.
Indoor Stores: Indoor stores are significantly larger than individual tables, ranging from 7x18 ft. up to 24x32 ft., and are priced from $100 to $300 per weekend.
Outdoor Spaces: Located in the Yard at the Patapsco Flea Market, outdoor spaces are available for rent year-round. These spaces are 20x20 ft. in size and rent for $25 per day. They are rented on a first come, first served basis every Saturday and Sunday, as weather permits.
How to Reserve Your Space
All rentals must be done in-person. We cannot reserve spaces over the phone or via email.
Visit our office from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Friday immediately before the weekend that you wish to set up (e.g., visit us on Friday, Jan. 24, to rent a space beginning Saturday, Jan. 25) OR at 8 a.m. on the morning of the day on which you wish to set up (Saturday or Sunday).
Check out the spaces available to rent for the upcoming weekend.
Select the space that best meets your needs.
Complete the necessary paperwork (bring proof of identification with you, such as a driver's license, state ID, or passport).
Set up your merchandise for the upcoming weekend.
Arrive at any time on the day that you wish to set up (Saturday or Sunday). Some vendors have arrived as early as 6:30 a.m.
Drive your vehicle into the Yard and select your space from any spaces that are open at that time.
Set up and begin selling your merchandise.
A staff member will come around to your space later in the day to collect the $25 rental fee.
Please note that vendors who wish to remain at the Patapsco Flea Market for more than two weeks are required to obtain a trader's license from the Baltimore City Courthouse. The fee for this license is approximately $24, and it must be renewed each year. The license can be obtained online through the Maryland Businesses Licenses Online website.
