the oldest and largest flea market in Florida and we are listed under the Top
Ten Tourist Attractions in the State. The Market covers over 40 acres; we charge
no admission fee and parking on our grounds is free. Initially, farm families
use to sell/trade "junk" items that they no longer needed. In the early 1950s
the market expanded to include new merchandise and the "junk" items were now
considered to be antiques and collectibles. Many of the founders of the Market
still sell fresh produce grown on local family farms in the expansive new
vegetable building. So make sure to visit! (ADDED: May 8, 2017, JBS)
