Maybe you’ve heard of Traders Village. What is it? It’s an outdoor shopping mall. It’s also America’s largest flea market with about 3,500 vendors every weekend. And it’s right in our own back yard! Located just off I-20 in Grand Prairie, Texas, it’s just 15 minutes from Treetops RV Resort.
What kind of goods can you find? Everything. And whether it’s new or used it’s bargain priced. You don’t want to read a list of merchandise here so got to their website and click on shopping. The advantage customers have at Traders Village is the number of competing vendors. If you want a pair of Texas cowboy boots, shop around at the five or six available vendors for the best price, and haggle a little till the price comes down. The arts and crafts shops are popular because they have the best unique hand-made items for gifts or Texas souvenirs.
Whether you’re searching for one-of-a-kind treasures or garage sale bargains, you’ll find everything you need at Traders Village. If you’re like me, you’ll also find many things you didn’t know you needed. If that isn’t reason enough to get out of the house you’ll find a real treat most weekends when they schedule festivals, demonstrations and special events. A few of the favorites in the coming weeks are: 52nd Annual National Championship Indian Pow Wow (Sept 19 -21st), 39th Annual Auto swap Meet (Sept 26th – 27th), Octoberfest (Oct 4th), and the 30th Annual BBQ Cookoff (Oct 11th).
For the kids Traders Village is a midway with rides, complete with corny dogs, turkey legs, and funnel cakes. Speaking of food, with over 30 food outlets and restaurants, there’s something for everyone. Hungry for Mexican? Go Tex-Mex, or try a traditional Mexican dish. Visit the Thai restaurant and experience something new. Get a Texas-sized burger that requires both hands, grab a seat and people-watch. Or grab a hot roasted corn on the cob as you stroll the lanes and cheek out the vendors.
This massive outdoor mall is spread over 120 acres, including an RV park, and traipsing through aisles and alleyways is a good way to spend a day, without spending a lot of cash. Besides, it’s a good, fun way to get exercise. Then you can go home and take that well deserved nap.
