  • Where's the bargain? At the Swap Shop! This phrase is absolutely accurate. This flea/farmers market is filled with great food, and treasures for everyone. There's a beautiful car collection and lots of antiques for your viewing pleasure. Also, if you enjoy the drive-in, yep, they have one. Kids under 5 are free, up to age 12 are $3 and adults are $7.
  • Cheap things, mostly. If you can, it's better to shop in regular stores... The quality is better. Swap shop sells cheap things. Pretty much. Now you can get good deals on phones and other electronics. But you'll see the same clothes, watches, luggages, etc been sold by different vendors. Plus, it's a nice, long walk so plan to walk and I don't like the food there. And the bathroom is gross.
  • Authentic Latin/Carribean flea market, with exceptional super car and vintage car permanent exhibition, also great food, fresh market, coconut water, etc. If you want to feel out the US for a bit, go roam around and enjoy this meeting pot!
  • not the cleanest place but it is super fun to go to and the prices are wonderful and you can find so many amazing and unique items.
  • I highly recommend coming here if you are ever in the Fort Lauderdale area. A lot of fun filled with food, shopping, arcades, amusement rides, fruit market, ect. It's a Great Flea Market
