When people hear the term flea market, one thought usually comes to mind. That is a large space where many deals and bargains can be made on unique items. While this is very true, the fact is flea markets offer much more than rare items to purchase. Over the course of the last decade, these places have evolved into areas to enjoy food, entertainment and many other events. Even if you have no desire to make a purchase, a flea market is a super venue to enjoy the day.

Many Options for Non-Shoppers

Markets want to attract all customers, not just shoppers. To do this, a wide range of activities are offered to all ages. Movies have quickly become one of the most popular additions to the flea market line-up. A good number of the films are aimed at kids and younger teens.  This is part of the trend of markets becoming a terrific alternative for a unique family outing.

But movies are just one option. Musical groups, magicians and face painters are also frequent flea market visitors. In fact, live entertainment is one of the biggest draws besides great deals at any venue. The music and bustle just add to the ambiance and provides a lift to the spirits.

Many shops also feature seasonal specials like back to school days or holiday themed items. Halloween parties and other games abound this time of year. And as we head closer to the end of the year, take advantage of the holiday fun. No matter how you celebrate, you can be sure there will be something for you.
