Part farmer’s market on steroids, part flea market, part concert destination, this giant place offers up jewelry, wind chimes, clothing and tons and tons of other one-of-a-kind treasures. Set aside a whole day to visit Fleamasters so you can see it all. The market also offers fresh produce and snacks along with vintage items. And when the shopping day is done, you can stay for the live music in the new music hall. You may have to rub elbows with the tourist crowd at this popular place, but it will be well worth the experience.
If you like a little fresh Red grouper with your retro find, then this flea market is your go-to place. Not only can you get luggage, musical instruments and clothing from over 600 vendors, but also fresh produce and just-caught fish. Scoop up some tomatoes and peppers and you have dinner along with a start to your Christmas shopping.
Getting up early has its rewards and at Northside Drive-In Flea Market those rewards are plentiful. Start your day with a $4 breakfast at their 50s style diner, then plunge into the 300-vendor facility where you can peruse the jewelry, linens, books and antiques. You can even get fresh fruit and vegetables. But make sure you stop for a rest because you don't want miss the show in the evening. Northside features a drive-in movie to end your day of treasure hunting.
True to its name, this 4500-square-foot market offers all kinds of old, classic furniture.

Take some time to hunt for the perfect item that is different and unusual. Put on comfortable shoes, head to one of these cool places and enjoy your own little treasure hunt.
