The Flea Markets of Jacksonville

Whether it’s a computer from a traditional storefront that accepts major credit cards or a used lawn mower put out by someone simply attempting to de-clutter their garage, you can stumble upon nearly anything imaginable at a flea market. Fruits and vegetables, canned food, clothes, electronics, and vintage items for low prices are all up for grabs.

According to the Pecan Park website, Pecan Park is the largest flea market in Jacksonville, boasting over 750 storefronts in an open-air, covered establishment. The Pecan Park market has been open for over 20 years and also contains and RV park. Although larger than Ramona Flea Market, the Pecan Park market is free, and contains a couple of attractions outside of the standard flea market fare including bounce houses and mini golf.

Miss the Bargain House of Fleas on Blanding Blvd. Was a regular when I lived there. Sorry to see that one flea market charges admission. That is crazy. That's what they do up here in Richmond. I refuse to ever go to a flea market that charges admission. They are getting money from the vendors. I am not paying to shop. That's like charging admission to a mall. As Nancy Reagan would say, "Just say No!" :-)

Grew up going to both Beach Blvd and Pecan Park. One thing not really mentioned are some of the little differences you see at each flea market around town. Pecan Park is more "Southern", Beach Blvd has substantial Hispanic and Asian ethnic beats, Ramona tends to be one large yard sale, etc.

Drove by Beach Flea Market around noon yesterday on way back from beach. It was packed, even in 100 degree weather. So people love their Flea Market!
