  • Pretty neat place to check out....not to many deals most shops refuse to even negotiate with prices...I like negotiating when your at a flea Market setup, just don't expect that here. Most shops are the same and carry the same merchandise. Prices for clothes are normal $15 tops $25 pants/jeans nothing special not many deals. Produce Market has good prices and good food....awesome cars...Drive In Movies is pretty neat!!
  • This is a fun experience. It's always exciting. Several places inside to eat. Parking can be a pain on the weekends, usually because it is packed. They charge a couple dollars to park on weekends. Awesome car collection to check out inside. You never know what you will find here when shopping. Easy to locate. Fun place to just wander around and window shop.
  • Good place to shop and sell your stuff. Plus they have good food and a huge arcade. Lit af
  • Nice place to do shopping for odd things. Lots of stuff. Can easliy spend few hours. Remember to bargain and usually you can get good deals.Can be hot in the summer. Parking can be difficult. lots of fun to just walk around.
  • Used to be incredible with all the different vendors . Business has been bad and a lot of vendors left. Still good for certain items though.
