The Flea Market is not the same anymore. I remember when I used to go and there was that feeling of being on a Flea Market; you know, the unique treasures, the bargain and more. Now is like a bunch of stores selling the same stuff a lot of them. Also some days you go and it is empty and... More

Went to Flea World yesterday and it was a total disappointment. So many abandoned stalls. It used to be filled with vendors of all types. Even the parking lot was empty. Not sure what is going on there, but for now, I would not recommend going out of your way to visit.

This is a flea market that's covered and they have mist during the summer so not unbearable. Lots of places to eat, selling pretzels etc. Happened to be on our way to Orlando and looking to kill some time so we stopped. No charge for parking, it fit in with what we were doing. They did have a good pickle... More

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

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.
