Over the years visiting ABQ I really don't think I have spent much money with the exception of an occasional Tee Shirt or Socks. it's just fun to walk around and get the local feel for things and see all the people. The smell of roasting Hach Chile Peppers and having a fresh made burrito. The cost of parking is... More

Too many vendors selling imported socks and other items but if you get there real early when people are unpacking you can get some decent deals. I picked up a couple very rare books for a $1 each this time and will make hundreds on their resale! I don't like the fact that I have to pay $5 to park... More

Located at the NE corner of Central and Louisiana, there are lots of stalls, many with essentially the same new, cheap things--socks, shoes, women's underwear and jeans. But it's the variety of used items that makes the experience interesting--furniture, tools, backpacks, books and jewelry--not to mention the people-watching and the bargaining over a few dollars, one way or the other....

Around half of the stalls are the same stuff. The same lime green, ridiculous, no purpose knives. The same air soft guns. Aside from that you do have a lot of random used goods. The most disappointing part was the serious lack of local artists and craftsmen. There were a couple jewelry vendors but aside from that, nothing else. Not... More

We've been coming here since 1994. There used to be more Indian artists and sellers. You can buy anything from "fake genuine" squash blossom jewelry to real necklaces. It's usually very crowded and we always keep a close eye on our wallet. The more commercial store type part of the flea market is closest to Central Avenue with the collectors,... More

I live here in ABQ and love to go to the flea markets and goodwills of every city I visit. My favorite - Geneve. This is a poorer version of San Jose. . So in defense of ABQ, my adopted city, it s a poor state and this is reflected in the vendors. I find things on my trips as... More

There are all kinds of things that you will find at the flea market. There is junk as one reviewer mentioned, but they obviously didn't make it very far into the market or maybe went on a week where the weather was off and not a lot of vendors were there. both New and Used items available. I can't say... More
