We haven't been around for over 10 years. Returning to area, we decided to go back to visit the flea market. Was so disappointed to find it has shrunken. Also so many booths carried exact same Chinese junk. No more of that unusual items we use to get. Was really disappointed how the flea market has become. Also visited several Stores. Wow! with those prices, Who can afford to live there? Has become a tourist trap side show!

The flea market is full of great treasures. There is something for everyone. Over 800 booths. The monster cookies from the Amish Country cookies are the best cookies I have had.

Every time we visit this area we stop in for a few hours at the flea market. Always find something I need at a great price. Lots of stuff! We hit when there was fresh corn and some other items. The sweet corn is excellent. Always enjoy this!

Lots of walking. Found great unique items. Food courts were filled with good variety of vendors. Bring cash or credit cards. Bring a bag for all your treasures.

Don’t be alarmed when you see the map of this place. You don’t need to rush thru it. You’ll have plenty of time to walk thru it. There are places to eat. We went to the auctions on Wednesday and expected one auction at a time. Much to our surprise, there were several auctions going on at the same time. So get there early if you want to review the items that are up for auction. It gets crowed in the auction barn.
