Before you invest hundreds of dollars into a canopy you might want to make sure that flea markets are going to be an ongoing thing for you. Go to your first one, making sure the sponsors are going to let you show with just a table or provide a shelter for you. If you go to a few this way, you can make a better decision on purchasing your canopy.
One low cost, but effective way to protect your products in the interim is to use a "picnic tent" to cover your booth. While they won't last very long in rough weather, they can provide your display booth with adequate protection from the elements when conditions are mild.
Once you've decided that you want to purchase a canopy shelter, you need to get a good sturdy commercial grade canopy that will last a long time. Getting a pop-up shelter will be advatageous as they go up and come down in minutes with no help... you can do it yourself.
There are a lot of accessories and signage-type help you can receive from the canopy manufacturers, so take some time to make your choice.
