Went to the place hoping to find some cute trinkets to decorate for the holidays. NOPE JUNK EVERYWHERE! Everyone had the same cheap junk: cheap clothes, bras and underwear,break as soon as you pay for it toys, blankets, make up brushes.. and years old make up. If you're looking for car grills...they have them here!! Spent the day just looking... More

Saddened by the sale of puppies in cages that were obviously not well cared for. 2 Labradoodles were in cages in over 100 degree heat. They were panting heavily and unresponsive and obviously in great distress. I called the SPCA. Hoping something will be done and the poor dogs made it through the day. It was a horrible experience.

The place is absolutely disgusting. Most of the vendors are scammers selling knockoff items (especially if you're buying electronics). They can also be rude. Telling you to get out of their store space and having an attitude when your doing something particular. If you really want to visit this place, I would recommend going there between Novemeber and March because... More

We went out to Trader’s Village after finding a pamphlet at our hotel. Trader’s Village looks more glamorous in the pamphlet than in person. Upon arrival, we had to pay $4 to park. It was our hope that we would find items from Texas and Mexico – we found very little. We mostly found items from China. Even for a... More

Had been many years since we had been there. Cost $4.00 to park. Was vendor after vendor of new stuff made in Mexico or made in China. Best thing we found as an Icee.

Trader's Village is huge and you will probably get stuck in a bit of traffic getting there but it's a good way to spend the day, whether you're a couple or a family. If you have little ones, bring a wagon/stroller/something to carry them in, and whatever you might buy there. They really do have something for everyone: clothing, jewelry,... More

Love traders village! We go at least once a month. Bring a cart/wagon (something to haul your treasures!! You will be likely to spend the whole afternoon here! Also to save a little extra money it's cheaper to bring a cooler full of beer than buying beer here, and it's aloud!! They also have a small amusement park area. Lots... More

Free to browse around, with a $4 parking charge. It's like a mini-Canton First Monday Trade Days, but without the visit to beloved Dog Town or the craft Market Halls. There are some interesting booths and friendly sellers and there are lots of imported things too. Some booths seem to be selling the same items throughout the Village but there... More

There are "treasures" for everyone here. Need a dog, cat, dishes, records? They got it. Some great food stops inside also. Definitely a great way to waste away a day looking through other people's stuff.
