This flea market is run down and dirty. It is stand after stand of the same stuff: knock off brand name items, cell phone cases, and cheap clothing and perfumes. My son and I were in and out of there in 10 minutes. It was a waste of a drive.

After spending 14 days in the Caribbean looking through markets in each stop, we saw this and decided to give it a try on US soil. It was, first MASSIVE! Second it was, for a photography buff, full of color and things to see. There is a used 'swap' area outside, and a vendor 'new' area as well.... Much is... More

While staying at a Dania Beach hotel we decided it would be cool to visit a swap meet. It had been years since we had been to on, so we summoned up Uber and checked it out. There were hundreds of venders there. I still don't understand why so many were selling toilet paper and Irish Spring body soap. I... More

We had a lot of fun here, lots of vendors & you can barter with some of them. We liked the outside much better, inside shops were more new items. There is a food court inside, a large arcade, jewelry shops, antique cars, just about everything. There is also an outside farmers market. There were no parking fees when we... More

Large flea market/garage sale. Interesting. Free parking, hot though, so be prepared. Bring water. If you are with older folks, the terrain of the lay out is a little hilly and rough. Lots to see, always changing. If you know ahead of time they have great fresh flowers for cheap. Produce was hit and miss, collectors might find something, and... More

In its defense....it does say swap shop. It is NOT a flea market! People review it saying it is but it's a swap market.....very different. If you are like ok if for toiletries, old phones, cheap clothes, farmers market food, and just rows and rows of junk....this is your place. If you are looking for a flea market....this is NOT...

We spent a week and came here 3 times. Parking was $5 one day, $3 another and free another day. You could probably park for free across the street but it looks like a long way to carry your goods. Even the pay lot is huge and hard to find a spot. there are definitely bargains here inside and out.... More

Went here to kill some time on a rainy morning. If you like swap shops and flea markets you'll be in hog heaven here. Lots of clothes and jewelry. Food and beverages. Lots of junk to. They show drive in movies at several theaters at night there. Small carnival rides for kids. A ton of stuff to see. Not really... More
