Considering this is suppose to be one of the biggest flea markets and drive in, there was not much going on. Was there several years ago and it was bustling and there were 14 movies going on. Now there were a few vendors selling the same thing and only a handful of movies. Waste of time.

We only visited the flea market section which is very primitive with goods spread out on a blankets on the hot asphalt in the full sun. Much of the wares offered looked like they were salvaged from curbside garbage. There were several booths which offered basic household goods such as mops, brooms, and toilet paper.

Came here to browse and maybe find a bargain. What we found is a lot of junk and some very sketchy people selling junk and porn videos. If they took the junk and porn peddlers out, it might be an ok place to go to.

The swap shop shows at least 6-7 movies at a time. Now they do not have 14 screens but they have quite a few and they play all the new movies. Just saw "Hidden Figures twice. The staff is always cleaning the grounds and you can pick up too salty popcorn and drinks. I got a large cheese pizza from... More

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.

A great few hours outside and inside. Lots of fun flea market vendors outside and then merchandise and store type vendors inside. Food court and arcade too. A fun Ferrari museum is on premises as well.

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
