Drove 60 miles round trip to visit the largest flea market in America. Arrived 9 am and an elderly gentleman handed me a map at entrance. I drove around to market and it was empty. Closed for good the previous Sunday

We had a great time here. Two adults, a 7 year old and 17 year old and we all found all kinds of treasures!

We stopped in on a Friday morning and it was dead. A lot of the booths were empty. Maybe Saturdays and Sundays are better. Maybe February is off season for the flea market. We ended up with a pair of socks and a Florida magnet. Since we made our way out there from Orlando we decided to explore downtown Sanford... More

Some great deals on handbags, sunglasses plants and designer shoes. There wasnt anything I did not like accept I needed more time to shop and my companions were ready to go.

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
