Given the hype we had planned a day and allocated 2 hours. This was a big mistake, all done in20 minutes, to be honest we have seen more at a local car boot sale, so we're weakly disappointed. That sa... read more »
As flea markets go this one is fairly small but does offer a wide range of products and services. It is best "during the season", Dec - Mar but most businesses are staffed when it is open. Limited foo... read more »
I hate to say this but save yourself the trouble of going here. We walked through the entire market in about 30 minutes. Junk, dollar store items, low-end jewelry, and knitted crafts dominate. Small c... read more »
The previous review was by Chris King the President. Kind of bias and the the place just is empty and if he knew what he was doing in retail or Venice it would be not be empty or over charge on rates to trick or take advantage of people who do not know better. The worst,empty booths,rotten produce,no fun or typical flea market items,very odd. Maybe they want to go out of business to build condos because some one gave up at this place. My guess is the few good reviews are from vendors who deserve better. Hit the Red Bard or Sun Dome in PC. Dont waste the gas or time. Turn off the lights,the party is over.
Lots of interesting stuff to look at. Was surprised at how many cheap imports there were now. When I went it wasn't super busy. I remember the Dome being full and packed as a kid.
Not much here. If you want a really nice flea market (and big) go to the Red Barn in Bradenton.
The Dome was the first Flea Market to open in Sarasota, (March 1974) and also the first Farmers Market and great Tourist stop. Some of the comments that have been made on this review are not accurate and probably some form of small minded competition. Anyway, the front or original Dome building is not Air Conditioned, although if you walk thru to the back three buildings are A/C and full of local vendors, this is traditional Flea Marketing Nation wide, don't expect Dillards or Saks, although Cool stuff that you may find to be a great bargain, and very nice people. The neat thing about this Dome is you never know what unique and memorable fun you can have exploring it. I know, I've been visiting since 1975 and its always been Free
We are regulars at the fishing supply booth. Costs are half what the larger stores charge.
