Find this longtime market open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in the Irvington Shopping Plaza. The wide selection of items available for sale truly reflects the 27 years of business under its belt.

Trader Buck’s Flea Market, Speedway
Eclectic doesn’t even begin to cover this flea market’s offerings — head their way to see for yourself. Bonus: The group also operates the Peddler’s Mall on the east side, if that’s closer to home.

Strawtown Flea Market, Strawtown
Any antique lover should make the pilgrimage up to Strawtown to check out this historic market. Open at daylight every Thursday, it features both outdoor and indoor sellers + public auctions in the evening.
