Grand Bazaar

The History

The Grand Bazaar NYC began in 1982 when a group of parents had an idea to help fundraise for the local schools with a weekend “yard sale.” As the market grew, it came to be known as GreenFlea Market in 1985, only changing its name to the Grand Bazaar NYC in 2016 in hopes of rebranding the event and acquiring an even bigger fan base. While the flea market has been around for over 30 years, its mission has always remained the same: raising funds for the neighboring public schools in the area, ultimately benefitting over 4,000 children in doing so.
