Day 326 – Flea World Sanford – America’s Largest Fleamarket
America’s largest flea market FLEA WORLD was torn down in 2016. Below is an old article I wrote about a visit at Flea World many years ago. I am keeping this post up for nostalgic reasons 😉

Sanford is home to America’s largest flea market, Flea World. Located on highway 17-92 (you know you are getting closer when you pass Bargain Boulevard), this huge area of air conditioned warehouses (though open on sides, therefore not really cool) offers its visitors pretty much anything you might be looking ford, from clothing and accessories to perfumes and electronics. There are also lots of “specialty booths” present, like custom license plates. Flea World is definitely worth a visit if you live in the Central Florida area. I have bought some smaller items here in the past, including perfume, CDs and handbags. If you are a patient shopper bargain hunter or negotiator, you will definitely find something to your taste here :o)
Local businesses are also encouraged to start their own booth here. It can get them great exposure and is not as expensive as you might think. Vendors, visit the web site for more information about the process and Flea World in general.
Here is their information:
4311 S Orlando Dr
Sanford, FL 32773
Flea World is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 6pm.
Flea World is located right next to Fun World (only open Saturdays and Sundays), a little amusement park with carousels and racetrack but also a monthly changing free entertainment program (August is Elvis month).
