Having went to this flea market for many years I can say things have really gone downhill, not in the terms of cleanliness or amount of vendors, because the grounds are maintained well and there are tons of vendors. The problem lies in that there is soooooo much of the same Chinese made junk, socks and dollar merchandise that after... More

Yes, there are lots of booths, yes it is large, yes, there are a few real antiques and treasures. But by and large this is a collection of local folks selling poor quality items mass produced in China and Mexico. You see the same junk from booth to booth. Prices were not good. In fact, we saw the exact same... More

Lots of fun going through the flea market & finding bargains! We have been here before and we always enjoy it. Once you pay for parking, you can leave and come back again for the one price. We enjoy looking at everything.

This place is huge......it's set up in sections so you don't get lost or overwhelmed.....like most flea markets there are many stores with identical items....as in.....didn't we just go through this place......but there is also such a wide selection of all kinds of shops to make it interesting and worth while

We were interested in seeing all the various goods, but after spending about 45 minutes there, decided not worth the time. Some handmade items….but the majority of vendors were selling outdated (not necessarily antique) things, which you could find at any garage sale. Very disappointed.

If you can imagine it, it's probably sold here. We were amazed at all of the booths, however there were quite a few vendors that sold the same thing. Be prepared to walk, however there are plenty of areas to stop and rest in the shade and even grab a bite to eat. A large majority of the area you... More

900 vendors. The further back you walk the cheaper the prices. Lots of walking. Most of it is outdoors where you will be walking on gravel; so wear comfortable shoes with thick soles. Wasn't prepared for the $3.00 parking fee, so have it handy when you pull into the lot. If you have books & brochures look through them first.... More

We have always made the 110 mile trip at least once a year for the last 20 some years. The Flea Market in the beginning use to offer rare, and handmade objects and for me that was well worth the long drive. But in the last 3-4 years the quality of the material sold there has become shoddy and to... More

Most of the other reviews sum up this place pretty well. It is a very large flea market. Just because it is in Amish country do not think that it is just Amish items. Most items are not. Also, there are not a lot of antiques or other items that you might expect at a flea market. There is a... More

Larger than average flea market.A lot of items not found elsewhere. Good variety , but a lot of repeats. Parking only $3 for all day. You can leave in your car and come back later on the same parking pass the same day.Plenty of interesting shops in town also
