    This is a wonderful indoor outdoor flea market, so many booths I've been here 3xs and still haven't see it all. Fresh Produce at great prices, all types of food, beautiful art work, crafts, jewelry, clothes, shoes, health aids, essential oils, pure shay butter.. And everything in between. Fun way to shop

    I am in love with the produce here! Everything is so full of flavor and that is evident by the potency of perfumes. You can smell the wonderful smell of fresh produce a block away which is unlike the smells of the produce section in a store like Publix or Winn-Dixie where you barely smell anything when you are standing right in the middle of the section. The produce is much more reasonably prices than even the farmers market and everyone of the vendors are super friendly. The produce does spoil faster then something that you would buy from South America or Europe (what's sold at the standard grocery store) but that is because fruit is not supposed to stay picture perfect for weeks on your counter top. You have to shop like your grandparents did and only shop for the next 4-7 days and preserve what you don't eat or compost and grow your own produce.

    Typical flea market environment. Not exciting. Most of the shops sell the same junk as all the rest. However, the produce area is worth the trip. And there is a shop that sells Lego Minifigures that's also worth the trip. There is one place that sells paintings that are really nice, but way too expensive. And the guy that has the "pet shop" is a really creepy and I wouldn't let my kids around him alone, if you know what I mean. Also, in that "pet shop" the animals are shoved into cages, it's really hot and crowded and none of the chickens could even stand up. I am a little concerned about that place. Overall, it's hit or miss. Go for the food though... buy from local farmers.

    This flea market is awesome. Usually super packed but I expect that info a weekend flea market run. I love the 2 kitchen stores they have I find cool thing's. I go for the fruit and veggie stands, (there is a lot). I also go there to see the bison and alligators. And the goats, and the geese, and the peacock.

    Great and happy produce place in general. Other than that, nothing but multiple small identical appliance stores with all the same products that I could find online for a much more relative price, mass produced items from China and left over unwanted items from yard sales. Used to be unique in regards to selection of things to purchase. Personally feels like a low-class Wal-Mart now. But with even less selection. Definitely will not be going back, not what it used to be, will be looking elsewhere like a local farmers market.
