We come here at least once if not more a season. If you cant find something here to purchase you aren't a true shopper. They have everything from nuts and bolts to campers. Great antiques and yard items. Huge farmers market with all home grown fruits and veggies as well as plants and bushes. Always spend all day here ..... More

Yes, there are some "repeats", where the same (or very similar) vendors are in multiple locations. However, the overall variety of items and vendors make it worthwhile to come and spend a few...

Had a little bit of everything!!! If you like flea markets you have to check this out!! took my partner and I about 3 hours to go through it all. Lines for bathrooms were long, but if you go before you get in it'll be alright. Friendly vendors. Its all about what you are looking for.

I'd heard SO MUCH about this flea market that I finally went and visited it. Boy, was I disappointed ! While we didn't visit every booth, we walked through a lot of it. 99% was comprised of cheap Asian junk. Certainly not worth it. And the vendors don't haggle at all. Very much a "take it or leave it" attitude.... More

I used to love this flea market. This year I thought prices were high for what you were getting and not as much variety or quality items. It is clean and the plants and food are great but vendors need to work on pricing and some need to up their selection. I don't go to a flea market to spend... More

Very clean, nice place to visIt for a day. Flea market has lots off (too much) cheap China junk and the same stuff repeats over and over. Produce is nice. In general a must go just Otto walk through once.

I has been many years since attending the Flea Market. This trip was a little disappointing. Most booths was selling merchandise from China. I agree with another reviewer that after two rows, you have seen it all. With the exception of the vegetable section, but that too was sparse. Its possible that the crops have not matured yet this year.

If you go to this market, just hit a couple rows. You will see the same stuff over and over if you go more than a couple rows. Loved the town, but not the market.

You can't see everything in just 1 day, unless you hustle your bussell!! I mean half run. Everything from ANTIQUES to farm equipment. You have to try their homemade ice cream run by a 2 stroke engine. Super great. Great places to eat on and around the flee market.
