Pilgrim Church Saturday Flea Market

In operation for decades, this open air market - an institution in the Uphams Corner community is for the adventurous shopper.  Sporting vendors and customers whose primary languages are other than English, the market offers clothing, housewares, electronics, CD, books and more.

Pilgrim Church Flea Market

Vendors have a no-nonsense attitude having put up with customers wanting "something for nothing" for too long but are still willing to haggle and "offer deals."  Well worth even the atmosphere, this mini-shopping mall is a great  way to spend a Saturday morning - 540 Columbia Rd in Dorchester.
