SPRING GARDEN—Everyone's favorite Philly flea, the Punk Rock Flea Market, returns this weekend. Now stretching two days for double your pleasure, the market will take place on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, from 10am to 5pm. Both days promise different vendors—over 500 of 'em—selling vintage clothing, instruments, tools, furniture, artwork, bicycles, and everything in between. Also keep your eyes peeled for food from ReAnimator Coffee, Blackbird Pizza, and Little Baby's Ice Cream—and don't forget the $3 entry fee. [RackedWire]

GRAY'S FERRY—The Pennsy Flea Market will host the "biggest yard sale ever" on Saturday, from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Expect 300+ booths of your typical flea market fare: antiques and collectibles; furniture; new and vintage clothing; home decor items; and collectibles. There will be fresh produce and baked goods vendors lest you get peckish. [RackedWire]
MAIN LINE—Rounding out the weekend is the Clover Market, the Main Line's top flea market. A little more highbrow than your standard flea, the rain-or-shine outdoor bazaar will take place from 10am to 5pm on Sunday, at a parking lot at 12 East Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore. The draw: Over 100 vendors of antiques and collectibles, vintage clothing and jewelry, architectural salvage, and finely crafted handmade items; also expect free admission, free kids' crafts, and onsite food.
