The time has come—not for cabbages and kings, but for Brimfield!

Brimfield—short for the Brimfield Antique Show, the biggest antiques flea in the Northeastern United States—comes thrice a year to tiny, eponymous Brimfield, Massachusetts. Antiques vendors take over a long stretch on either side of Route 20 with their vintage wares of all stripes, from shelves and jadeite dishes to massive, dusty, beautiful pieces of antique farming equipment. Whether you’re a serious collector or someone who just loves to sift through your local thrift store’s bargain bins, you’ll find something special at Brimfield. Which, of course, is why we’re going. It is nothing short of a party.

For a second year, we’re bringing back the Food52 Market: You’ll be able to peruse some of our favorite vintage-inspired treasures from the Shop. We’ll ship them to you for free if you place an order, which means you’ll have more room in your car for other Brimfield finds. You can scoop up some of our pieces designed in collaboration with Madewell, like shibori-dyed linens and pretty, splatter-painted leather coasters.

We’ll also be partnering with Pottery Barn to give Brimfield explorers a home base: the Pottery Barn Lawn Party! Come by, say hello, and use our tent as a place to step out of the sun and the chaotic fun of Brimfield. Relax on some of Pottery Barn’s dreamy outdoor furniture! Have a snack! Sip on some iced teas, courtesy of Pure Leaf’s Tea House Collection! Pick up a Food52 tote! Check out our killer vintage camper! Whew!

  • Throw a Barbecue & Biscuit Breakfast at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 10! In partnership with Pottery Barn and the local and beloved BT’s Smokehouse, we’ll have Food52 co-founder Merrill Stubbs’ Cream Biscuits en masse, brisket hash, and sausage fatties (you’ll love them). We’ll keep going until we run out of biscuits.

  • Craft woven wall hangings from yarn and found objects
  • Pot succulents in all variety of vintage vessels (teapots! mugs! coffee creamers!)
