Outdoor Flea Markets
Our outdoor flea markets have grown to be some of the most loved markets by both sellers and buyers. These flea markets are well established well managed and well attended.
Over 100 spaces of bargains galore from vendors from all around the state. Held the 3rd Sunday of every month April-October in the huge parking lot of our busy mall and as always FREE admission.
Terry VanHorn from Zack's Tunes DJ service plays music and entertains you while you eat great food and enjoy the great fellowship of our flea market vendors. Don't be surprised if we just bust out and start doing the Cupid Shuffle or the Cha Cha Slide! Dealers and shoppers really look forward to each and every one of our flea markets. Flea markets are held from 10am-3pm but many vendors stay past 3pm since the mall is open until 6pm.
Anybody can be a vendor. You can't have a successful flea market without great vendors and I truly have the best bunch of traveling vendors plus a large amount of newbies that continuously come and often "sell out." We can accommodate 100 spaces and most times sell out in advance. The secret is to keep it simple. Our flea markets are one day. Pre-reserve your space by going into the Mega Mall or calling us at 517-487-3275 with a credit card. Just your name and your money will secure your space. The cost is $25.00 if pre-reserved 30 days in advance. Late registration all the way up to and including the day of, if space is available, is $30.00 for a huge 18 x 20 space (2 parking spots).
All shows are held rain or shine. Since we heavily advertise all shows in advance there are no refunds or credit if you chose not to show up due to inclement weather or other reason.
Dealer set-up starts at 6:30 am (NOT BEFORE) and is advertised to start at 10 am but customers start to show up around 9 am. Upon your arrival I will assign you a space. You may pay for the entire season or remainder of the season in full to permanently reserve the same space and to gain early set up rights (prior to 6:30 am) if you choose to. You may choose to use your car on the same space with you but it must be within that 18x20 space. You may also pull up to your assigned space, unload and then park in the customer parking lot. Bring your own tables or rent our 6 foot tables delivered to your space for $6.00 each.
I have saved the best for last!!!
Free doughnuts and juice to all participating dealers!
Remember anybody can be a vendor and sell anything from antiques to garage sale stuff. Our flea markets even commonly include produce. No food or beverages unless you are one of our food vendors. Our flea markets are also a great way to advertise or market your business cheaply to a large amount of people in a short time. We encourage and welcome new faces!
The third Sunday of every month April through November.
