85 degrees and the fans are not on. I talked to a vendor who had complained to management only to be told the manager would turn them on when he is ready and not before 11am. By 11 we were so uncomfortable we had to leave and were unable to visit many of the vendors. If you are a vendor... More

Used to be a good flea market but it's now little more than a glorified dollar store, lots of Chinese knockoffs and poorly made stuff, sprinkled in with some fast food stands, lots of e-cigarette vendors and not a lot of good stuff, sadly. Bathrooms are filthy. The game area, fun world, has closed. The booths are covered but MANY... More

I have experienced this dump from all angles. First as a shopper then nearly a year and a half as its assistant director of security. As a customer I would not advise you to spend any money you can not afford to loose. You see the vendors post signs that say no cash refunds. The general manager I will only... More

We have went to plenty of flea markets in the past. This flea market was alittle dirty compared to some others. I did love the variety of stores and plenty of items to buy. I even got a new car chip key here. You can get lost in this market very easily. Some areas have alot of empty store lots... More

If you are in the mood for WALKING,go for it. Be aware that you will probably be the only one looking where you are going, or care about it. Fall is there better time, it can get HOT.

Not what I expected - was excited by the website - once I arrived was disappointed. I wouldnt waste time going here. If you want to see a lot of the $1, $2, $3 etc Oriental areas this is your place to go. Not a true flea market like we have in Ohio. There are a few TRUE flea vendors... More

This was a great place yeas ago, but now a lot of empty booths and only a few regulars left. Most of the ones left are cheesy dollar stores. Food is still decent. Fun world ride section is now closed. Would be worth it to have it as a venue for giant garage sales. At least then you'd get some... More

Went to Flea World Saturday afternoon. We were very disappointed. Their web site says there are 1700 booths and it's the largest flea market in America. WRONG. There maybe space for 1700 booths but there are far far less then that. Lots of empty spaces. Web site also says cooled, again WRONG, hotter then hell in there. What areas do... More
