We found our outing to this flea market to be most enjoyable. It was a cultural experience to New Mexico plus good prices were offered. We bought a long turquoise disc/shell necklace with a nice silver piece for $80 from Jennifer (from near the Grand Canyon), We enjoyed browsing the two long aisles of products which offered good smelling food...

We enjoyed going here with family from the area. You can find items at very reasonable prices. I learned from my daughter-in-law who is Navaho, it's okay to haggle a bit on the price. I bought jewelry and pottery that were made by the people selling them.

Once you stop you will always come back. It's always on my agenda to pick up the fresh roasted green chili peppers fresh ground blue corn flour. Once you have had blue corn pancakes fried in coconut oil and scrambled eggs covered with peppers you know you have been to Gallup and sure to come back for more.

My friend told me not to expect too much at this flea market - but it way exceeded my expectations. You could find everything here from horses to handmade Navajo jewelry to mutton stew to a saddle. Once you buy jewelry direct from the Navajo here, you won't want to pay the high prices you see in Albuquerque or Santa... More

Each Saturday (check what times of the year it's open) there is this wonderful flea market just north of downtown Gallup (off of I-40) on the east side of Rt. 666. Gallup is the unofficial capitol of the Navajo Nation and we always stop there overnight to and from our drives to Durango, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque from the Phoenix... More

After hearing about the flea market through trip advisor and tour books we decided to check it out. What an amazing experience getting to look at the authentic jewelry and crafts to trying the local foods and drinks brought an entire new culture into our lives. It is worth a stop for sure.

The Gallup flea market is well worth a visit...not so much for the "finds" , but for the opportunity to mix with the native American community. On a satruday with good weather...especially just after the first of the month (payday) there will easily be 8 thousand Navajo and Zuni at the market. Very cool. The vendors do not vary much... More

I typically get to the Flea Market once a month. You can find great prices on Native made products, there are wonderful vendors selling both Native and Hispanic foods, and the people watching is the best!

Its worth exploring this flea market to get the local flavor. Some good home made food, nice blankets and outfits and of course jewelry. Parking is a little chaotic and there aren't many port-a-potties but overall it was neat to walk through and pick up some stuff.
