With an average of 18,000 shoppers hitting the aisles every weekend, the Tri State Swap-O-Rama has something to crow about. Vendors take note: the Swap has 400 inside seller spaces and another 300 spaces outside, so the busy shopping plaza has tons to see and do all year long, no matter the weather outside!
Founded back in 1969 by Rex Meadows, the market has grown and morphed into a Chicago landmark, visited by everyday folks and celebrities alike. The markets are held in three different Chicagoland locations located in Melrose Park, Ashland Avenue, and Alsip on West 129th Street.
As the oldest market in Chicago, the swap is known as “The First Name in Flea Markets” for their famed BBB A+ reputation for honesty, and the power of entrepreneurship and free enterprise. Whether you’re a seasoned market pro, or just starting out, you’ll want to check out the fun and business opportunities that abound at the Tri-State Swap-O-Rama.
