Flea Markets

Here in San Antonio we have fine flea markets, influenced heavily by the vast indoor/outdoor mercados of Mexico. Looking to get a sonogram and a haircut, pet a donkey and ride a pony, eat some ice cream and a corn cup, play some videos games and pick up some new home furnishings? If you choose the right flea market, you can do it all on a Saturday morning — in one place. Here are a few of the best Saytown has to offer. — James Courtney

Trader's Village

A huge, new facility with standard trinkets and gifts, tires, appliances, local produce, a singularly diverse array of food offerings, a petting zoo, rides, an arcade, and much more. Trader's Village is clean, mostly covered, and also hosts events and concerts.

Bussey's Flea Market

Opened in 1978, Bussey's climbs a slight hill off the side of I-35 between San Antonio and New Braunfels. Bussey's is half open air, offers excellent garage sale finds as well as imported and discount merchandise, and boasts simple but tasty concessions.
