US giant flea markets

The right places for buyers and sellers

Are you looking for the best deal?

Let’s go get it among the several giant flea markets of the United States.

The terms “flea market” come from the French “marchè aux puches”, the pescky little parasite that infests old upholstery. Flea market is the singular world of bazaar in which antiques, collectibles, vintage clothes, cheap items and every kind of used good has sold by the vendors in their booths. Usually seasoned these markets are hold in big warehouse, school gym or wide parking car and sometimes vendors use their trunks as storefront.

Everyone could be a vendor, from families who want to discard old furnitures to the  expert ones who rove the country seeking all sorts of  unthinkable stuff for sale.

Between this and that deal, buyers usually are hungry and in every flea market there is often a wide variety of typical street food booths. 

It is not unusual to find flea markets in United States: some of them are very famous and tourists prefer to escape from shopping in the mall to get involved in something very typical as these crowded markets buying authentic souvenir to bring at home.
