Whether you are looking to buy or sell bargains in the flea market or antiques and collectibles from the Antique Village, Waldo Farmers and Flea Market has it all. Vendors offer everything from home decor and housewares to apparel and fashion accessories, with both indoor and outdoor shopping areas.
Waldo Farmers and Flea Market began in 1975, when Al Killian came back home from a trip and wanted to start his own flea market. After purchasing a 40 acre piece of land on Highway 301, he started constructing several large pole barns and several months later, the market was born. In 1980, the Killian’s daughter Sally, and her husband Steve Blakewood, purchased the flea market from her parents. They expanded the market to 50 acres from the original 40 and also added a 20,000 square foot antique mall.
After more than 40 years, the flea market is still owned and operated by the Blakewoods. They boast over 900 dealers and 20,000 customers each weekend. The market is open to the public from 8:30am to 4:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays, while the Antique Mall is open Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 5:30pm and Monday through Friday from 10am to 5:30pm.
It is super easy to purchase a selling booth, and the market takes reservations over the phone or in-person at their office location. Sellers can rent a booth up to two weeks in advance, or the day you plan on setting up your table. More selling spaces are available the earlier you rent. Booth rates start as low as $11 for outside, and most spaces under the covered sheds are $16 per day. Electricity is available at most locations and costs $2 per outlet for basic use.
