This is the flea market of all flea markets. Circle City Flea Market boasts a total square footage of over 75,000, with tons of free parking. Best of all, admission is also free, and the shops are all indoors.
Flea markets have been around for thousands of years, all over the world. In ancient times, they were simply open areas where people congregated to buy, sell and trade. These days they rival top-notch malls and shopping centers for the attention of the public.
People come to the Circle City Flea Market from far and wide, especially from nearby Beech Grove Indiana and Speedway Indiana, knowing they can find anything from stained and leaded glass objects d’art to antiques to new and used DVDs. And they know, too, that the bargain cornucopia will be overflowing.
Rental costs for booths start at $40 per weekend, with a returnable one-week rental deposit required. Some booths have built-in shelves and security tarps. Setup hours are by appointment and every Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
