BRIMFIELD — The traffic backup in the westbound lanes of Route 20 just after noon Thursday started right in front of the closed former Antiques, Etc., about 1.6 miles from the center of town. All the parking areas on Route 20 were sold out by early afternoon as thousands of people squeezed into town for the Thursday installment of the May edition of the Brimfield Antiques and Collectibles Show — known to most people as the Brimfield Flea Market — that is running through
The Brimfield flea market in Massachusetts is famous for its many thousands of dealers, its alleged bargains, and the infinite variety of its offerings.
The show, which takes place three times a year, runs thru Sunday May 15th. The other editions of the 2016 season are July 12-17 and September 6-11.
