The Vancouver Flea Market, in operation since 1983, is a proverbial “shopping mall of garage sales.” With close to 40,000 square feet of space and over 360 vendor tables under one roof, chances are you’ll find many a unique treasure to take home or gift to a loved one. Parking can be an issue as it’s incredibly limited; however, the market is a mere 10-minute walk from the Main Street-Science World skytrain station. There is a very modest entrance fee of $1.50 per person, but that is a small price to pay given the eclectic mix of treasures inside. My inner tourist finally got the better of me this past Fall. After riding by the Flea Market countless times – via Skytrain en route to Metrotown – I finally decided to stop and check it out. The sheer volume of materials can be overwhelming; so, I’d recommend setting aside at least a couple of hours to browse the tables. There’s everything and anything on hand: Vintage toys, jewelry, carvings, DVDs, VHS tapes (remember those?), tools, computer equipment, clothing, books, knickknacks . . . I could probably go on and on. If you have limited time, it would probably be advisable to formulate some kind of plan otherwise you’ll be running around madly in all directions. After you finish exploring, why not enjoy a burger at the modest on-site cafeteria? I spent a little over an hour exploring the Flea Market. While there was a lot that caught my eye, I left with a few vintage trinkets and some old Canadian currency, which was dated 1937 (a great year!). I imagine one could visit the Flea Market over and over and be presented with new items each time. It’s diverse. It’s a cultural mosaic and thus represents some of the best this Province has to offer. If you have the time, I highly recommend patronizing this unique experience. There’s some junk, sure, but always remember that one person’s junk is another’s treasure ;)

This used to be a good place to go... it seems to be cheap storage of crap in booths that are never open !!!! so many not there at 2 pm in the afternoon. Don't waste your time. Management is not working !! or these booths would be open !

There are deals to be had if you really take the time to search, and you’re lucky. There’s a $1 cover in order to discourage shop lifters, and some of the tables close pretty early, so make sure to arrive earlier in the day. If you’re willing to filter out the junk, you might find some deals. The one consistent thing to be found is tools, and you can get them there pretty cheap, and their food place has some pretty cheap deals, but none of them are healthy choices.
