  • Extensive range of new and used items and merchants. On site there are vendors where the prices are a little inflated, but have those where the bargain will be very good. Operates Friday, Saturday and Sunday. $2.00/person to enter. You can find Dave Hester of the program "can" (Storage Wars, original) working hard and with many good items and trinkets. The place is huge, it's in the parking lot of the Valley Casino, with easy access by bus (in front) or car (the Sports Arena Boulevard. We found more interesting than the Farmers Market of Little Italy, where things are very inflated and "gourmetizadas".

  • This place has all kinds of different things to choose from. It's a good place to walk around even if you don't intend to buy anything. There will be something there that will catch your eye. The main food area is closed for some reason. Maybe closed untill summer. There is a little snack shack in the middle of the swap meet. You will also smell Phil's BBQ while you're there. I used to think that the food court area had BBQ there. It was always Phil's BBQ in the shopping center next door. I highly recommend that you try out Phil's BBQ while you are there.
  • I work here every weekend. Great deals. Bring money and good shoes. A wagon or cart is a good idea, too. Very pet friendly place. I sell new knives and swords at space K-7. 10% off for fellow map contributers during December.
  • Great swapmeets for Antiques and Home decore. Sat is a good shop2pibg day
  • Oldest swap meet in local SD area. Crowed. 2/3 regular venders. Not the funnest place to spend 10 hours as a seller emptying out your garage. Be prepared to basically give the stuff away
  • I enjoy this swap meet. Lots of diverse stuff, good prices, interesting and nice people.
