“It was Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Love to shop and get good deals. I always find presents for whole family and plenty for myself. Can find things for any age. Always find presents for myself - jewelry, gardening items, clothes, and always get at least 1 new flag.

“A shopper's delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is not a typical flea market. You will find very few booths with used items for sale. Most booths are filled with store bought items, although there are also some with locally made items. However, it is still easy to find a 'treasure' (or several) and the size of the market alone (900+ vendors) makes it worth exploring. Be sure to take a rolling cart of some kind and wear comfortable shoes! $3 fee for parking.

“Good Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This flea market is one of the best we go to. We make an extended weekend trip annually. Other than Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends it is only open on Tuesday's and Wednesday's.

“Great Day Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

The best place to shop for unique items is the downtown area. The flea market is quite large and has a variety of items. One thing I didn't care for were the many booths with dollar store items. But if that's what you're looking for they've got them. Overall, it's a nice trip, but I won't be returning anytime soon.
