Stormville Flea Market Shopping Tips
To get the most out of your visit, use these pointers:
- Take plenty of cash. Very few of the dealers accept credit cards.
- Don't eat before you go. Buy lunch from one of the many food vendors or try a sampling from several. Enjoy fire-roasted corn, fried dough, sausage and peppers, sweet potato fries, and more. For dessert, stop by the ice cream truck for a sundae.
- If you get tired or hot, refresh yourself with an ice-cold brew from the onsite beer garden.
- Go early for the best selection.
- Dealers are willing to haggle, but you'll get better prices at the end of the day.
