Location: Lambertville, NJ
Lisa La Valle-Finan shares her recent Flea Market adventure with us, visiting the Golden Nugget Flea Market in New Jersey!
This Flea Market is good size, a walkable flea with a rich history named for gold rush pioneer James W. Marshall of Lambertville. Remains one of the undisputed best in the area for flea market fanatics and day trippers alike since 1967 with about 150 or so odd antique dealers of furniture, collectibles, crafts, and produce. Lambertville, once a wealthy hub between New York and Philly (and crossing point for General George Washington) though arguably gentrified, is a vibrant outpost in west Jersey horsey country. Home to a vibrant LGBT friendly community it is strewn with Victorian and Federal row houses and a respectable restaurant and gallery scene.

OLD WORLD LIVING RECOMMENDS
QUIET CORNER: Church in the main square.
LOCAL EATS: Manon Restaurant. Like Provence, the first Roman province beyond the Alps (Provincia Romana), it’s the best if only Provençal restaurant this side of the Hudson. If you’re not bewitched by the blue and yellow dining room, you will be by the elegant peasant fare.
