The open air Seaside Flea Market, the first such flea market in the Rockaways, opened to modest crowds on Mother's Day. While there were various items - from home goods, clothes and antiques to food - on sale, it was obvious that not all vendor slots have been filled, and the success of the market may very well depend on many of those who frequent the surrounding area.

It is located on Seagirt Boulevard, between Beach 11 and Beach 15 Streets near O'Donohue Park and Rockaway Beach, and is open every Sunday.
