“sweet union”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

For a first time visitor please be prepared to walk a lot and look for the unexpected. I found the buildings to be very retail and much like a lot of full time flea markets. The outside vendors is where you the treasures. But you have to look and bargin.

“Great place for a bargain or to sell your wares”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

This flea market has seen many changes over the years. The vendors are largely Hispanic, and cater to their tastes. However, there is such a variety, that there will be something for everyone.

“Not So Sweet Union”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Unless you are fluent in Spanish, don't waste your time. The outside of the Flea Market (closest to the road) is loaded up with cheap clothing, electronics, CD/DVD - usual junk. Deeper inside the market you will find an array of fresh veggies and fruits that is amazing. Inside the buildings there are bakers and other kinds of goodies. If you like crowds and bargaining, this is the place. Not my style.

“Bring your greencard, Should be renamed Little Mexico”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Sorry, but I first went here 13 years ago and it was great. You could find antiques, locally grown produce etc. It is now and for the last 5 years or more been converted towards the Mexican population here and caters to that ethnic group. Produce is from somewhere but not locally grown, speak Spanish or they don't understand (or want to).

Visit flea markets in SC or up in the Concord area.
