Hand planers, telescopes, and electric guitars, oh my! The Flea at the MIT is held at the outdoor lot at the corner of Albany and Main streets in Cambridge on the third Sunday of the month, April to October. Our intrepid photographer Erik Jacobs set up his portable photo booth at the market to snap shots of the buyers and sellers and ask about their wares.
A substantial amount of cruft we have at adafruit came from the MIT flea!
