Daytona Flea Market Shopping Tips:
- The indoor booths have lots of new items, including imports, seconds, and other bargain-priced goods. Visit the garage sale area outside if you're shopping for used or vintage goods.
- Wheelchairs and strollers are available for rent at the information station at the main entrance, just past row B. You can save your car space for your purchases instead of bringing your own.
- Brush up on the 20 Do's and Don'ts for Flea Market Shoppers before you go.
- If you're unaccustomed to the heat, go to the flea market early and visit the outdoor booths first. Then, when you need to cool down, head inside to the air-conditioned indoor spaces for a break.
- Concessions are available, including beer.
- Wear comfortable walking shoes, even if it's not your most stylish pair. The Daytona Flea Market is huge, and your feet will thank you after a couple of hours. Bring the sunblock too.
- Many of the vendors are open to haggling for lower prices. If you're shopping the used goods in the outdoor booths where the sellers have to pack it all up at the end of the day, you'll get better deals the closer it gets to closing time. Since admission is free, you can leave and come back late in the afternoon if needed.
- Bring your treasure hunting tool kit, including a lightweight rolling cart. The Daytona Flea Market is too big to tote armloads of purchases around by hand.
- For disabled and wheelchair-accessible parking, use the west parking lot via the Bellevue Avenue entrance.
- Make note of where you parked and which entrance you used so you don't have to hunt for your car at the end of the day.
