I recently moved to the area and was driving around when I came upon this place one Sunday afternoon. It wasn't too crowded and I found parking no problem. Outside there is a couple of fruit and vegetable stands, I bought tomatoes from each one and they were very good. I wasn't looking for anything particular and didn't by anything... More

My wife has been wanting to stop by this market and we finally got a chance. First off, we were there on a Friday at the very beginning of season, so maybe we didn't get the whole experience. We both found it to be very underwhelming. So many of the vendors had the same stuff, mid to low quality imported... More

Bruce, Thanks for the comments. I'm sorry that the experience you had didn't meet your expectations. The great thing about Flea Markets is that vendors come and go monthly. And the experience you have on one visit, may be completely different the next. We also have six great restaurants in the market. I'm sure one of them will provide you... More

Always has the best seafood and produce. Great shopping for XMas gifts and such. The sandals, shirts, and tourist stuff is cheaper than at the usual tourist traps.

Went this week for first time. Best buy was planted herb pot from vendor on outside. Inside a lot of booths look like they shopped at dollar store and now were charging $2. Some folks did have some interesting things, and I am sure once season hits variety of things will increase.

This is a classic flea market - less busy and some of the booths empty in the summer months. It is full and busy in the prime season. Stop by for the food too - it is near the entrance. We have eaten at the Cgrape and other places and enjoyed the friendly service and home cooking. There is a... More

I am comparing my experience to the Mesa flea market... I found this to be a giant waste of time but we chose this over the mega market in Fort Meyers due to the 3 littles with us. To be fair it was/is off season so there were a lot of empty booths. What was open was way overpriced! We... More

This is not a criticism, but a fact. Most flea markets are the same. That being said Flamingo had a nice fresh produce market at the entrance. Otherwise, the vendors are pleasant and helpful. The other good part was it was not too overwhelming so two hours is probably enough time to do a walk through.

A friend recommended this to us. It only takes a couple hours at most to see everything. We found some interesting little treasures to purchase and would definitely go back. There is a Greek Restaurant in there that had the most amazing greek salad I've ever had. Sorry - but I don't remember the name of the restaurant. Prices on... More

They have some neat things but there's a lot of redundancy. One shop I really liked was BEADS. She has all kinds of beads and beaded jewelry at reasonable prices so that was a good find. If I went back again I would go to that one shop. I also purchased a very pretty sterling necklace from an Irish woman... More

Went with a friend to see what kind of treasures we could find. Was NOT what we were expecting at a flea market. We were expecting antiques and such but ended up finding a lot of new items. Not a lot of clothing for a 30-something year old female. Some touristy type shirts, cheap knock-off type items, jewelry, linens. A... More
