the market only makes money for the owner who cares little about the dealers who keep the place open.After 3 years of insane rules and constantly declining sales we left.The summer months are a joke and the winter buyers spend very little but they keep raising the rent on the spaces.EBay is putting these places out of business and this owner is clueless how bad the market has become.Share Review
Webster Westside Flea MarketAdd to mybook
Great vintage and junque market. A favorite of mine (but I shouldn't be telling you this!). Everything from overpriced oddities and antiques to cheap treasures. I've found some super cool stuff here.
Some dealers are always grumpy and some are wonderfully fun. Some have permanent 'sheds' undercover but most of it is outdoors. Dealers bring their own tables in the front field and the backfield has wood tables provided. Some vendors are always there, some come and go...view more and some you never see again. .
Many vendors return north for the summer as do many of the customers, so in June, July, and August it's slimmer pickins. Large sized in other months.
Vintage jewelry, glassware, tools, metalware, WWII, signs, kitchen stuff, coins, collectibles of all kinds - plus a jumble of eclectic stuff. For men and gals. Lots and lots of variety but a bit too many guns and knives for my taste (Guns are supposed be locked or tagged shut). Local plants and produce (in season). Haggling's allowed but like anywhere, don't be insulting.
There are two (?) end rows undercover that have newer merchandise. I don't visit those aisles. Across the drive is another flea market with anything goes, produce and standard new merchandise. (knick knacks, imported stuff,,..). Not vintage or antique.
It's a ways off I75, but a nice "old FL" drive. Free admission but parking costs $2. There are several entrances, but they all get you there eventually.
Usually clean, centrally located restrooms with running water but other porta-potties located out further.
PA system for lost and found - and seperated parties. Occasional informational annoucements about restroom and snack locations. Wear closed shoes - the deep sand and scattering of stones will get in your sandals. Wear a hat. Bring a drink. It gets quite warm by 10 o'clock (except maybe in January) . Food vendors not abundant.
Hours: 6:00 am to 2:00 pm - Open Monday Only
