Holmes County Flea Market 101


We are so proud of the way The Original Holmes County Flea Market has grown over the years! It's exciting to see new and wonderful vendors find their home with us. We also love it when our beloved return guests bring new friends with them to experience all that we have to offer!

But what if you are new to the Holmes County Flea Market? What should you expect? This little blog post is going to be your primer on how to have the most fun at the flea market!

First of all, you've got to be prepared. We open at 9 a.m., so if you are coming right away in the morning, you want to make sure you had a great breakfast! There are many delicious restaurants in Amish Country that you can be sure to find one that suits your tastes! Wear comfortable shoes. The flea market does have a large dining area where you can find a place to rest, but this is probably not the place where you want to wear your stylish stilettos!

Second, don't rush! We like to use a food analogy when talking about shopping (because we love both!). Some stores you go into are like a butcher or a baker, you find one specialized good there, so it's a pretty quick trip. Just in and out. The Holmes County Flea Market, however, is like the biggest buffet ever! We don't recommend you trying to take it all in in one trip! You'll be overwhelmed! 

We have so many awesome vendors (over 300!), that if you try to get to all of them in one day, you will definitely run out of time! To continue the food metaphor, take the time to savor all the flavors at the flea market. Browse each one of our vendors. You'll be amazed that the selection of goods you will find!
