My husband and I enjoyed walking the grounds and looking inside the buildings for antiques, collectibles, plants, etc. They charge an admission fee (I believe $7). There is ample parking but can be a long walk to the entrance from the parking lot if you...More

Even though quite a few regular dealers were missing, the August show was good. We managed to find some good glass and a couple wash tubs. I also picked up an airplant and some Calhoun peaches. Great way to spend the morning.

A good place to spend Sunday a morning, but get there early as later it gets very crowded and you may have to park a long way back. There is a small fee of $6 per person to enter the building complex. The market is...More
