“Ecclectic Farmers Market”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

This place has a little bit of everything. There is a huge building with lots of different shops inside that include: Amish baked goods & meats, produce, fish, variety of restaurants (pizza, Chinese, sandwiches,etc.), stores selling socks, things for pets, dollar store, and loads more. And that is only the outside! There are loads of vendors with outside stalls selling everything from produce to flea market goods to plants and even sometimes you can buy a dog there. Very near the Market are other stores like Ross for less, Office Depot, Home Depot, and lots of fast food restaurants as well.

“Yesterdays treasures, today's junk & more”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

We love to frequent this indoor-outdoor flea market. You never know what you might find. I have found some real treasures here in addition to practical household items. There are tons of tools & baby items, but there are other items to be found too. Rarely do we walk away empty handed! Most vendors are willing to bargain & work a deal.

We also enjoy stopping at Mamma Gina's Pizza & the Amish market in the indoor portion of the market. The food is good & prices are cheap. Hits the spot after a stroll through the market!

Note: Watch their website for events. The other day they had FREE children's face painting, FREE caricatures & Market Man was strolling around the market for photo-ops!

“The market”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We would go in for the pretzel factory pretzels but have recently changed owners in the last month and pretzels are just not the same. Service is horrible prices went up and i wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I would go to the Amish market for cinnamon pretzels and hotdog pretzels. Other then that the market is good. Get lots of great deals :-)

“Great, but buyer beware!”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

If you are buying - Fri, Sat, Sun. You can get great produce, you can buy bread and meat from the Mennonites (not on Sunday of course), you can find the beautiful, the bizarre, the stolen (humm where did this guy with the card table and 10 used laptops get them from?) and the worthless at the outdoor flea market area. But you can also get food poisoning, watches that work for 2 days, and fish you get home and throw out once you smell it. And the new kid's bike prices were lower at Toys R Us.
If you are selling - outdoor unreserved spaces, just park your car in one, set up a table and start selling, someone will come around and collect the $15 fee. No new merchandise allowed. Many great locations open up on Sunday morning for some reason.

“Don't bother,”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Junk everywhere and frequented by the type of crowd where you should be careful where you put your hands. The produce stands sell the stuff that lasts for one day maybe so use it the same day. Also, DO NOT EAT HERE if you worry about food safety. For example there's a pizza place where we've gotten ill twice in a row from the stuff they leave out on display all day with no refrigeration, be warned and remember the toxins from the bacteria stay in the food even after it's re-heated. I've never seen a Department of Health Certificate or Inspection at any of the food vendors, need I say more? The "amish" stands are supposed to be the best there but often sell old bakery items from their other market locations, my stuff once went moldy before the end of the day although their fresh meat market is sometimes pretty good.
