Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Flea Market features more than 500 dealers. From this number, 450 sell antiques. If you are searching for the right antiques and collectibles, this is definitely the market for you.

Started in 1982, this market is strategically located because it is right in the path of several other markets along the way, which are held the same weekend. Together they draw 75,000 people looking for treasures.

When touring this market, there is plenty of food available either at the market or around the area. There are 16 food vendors serving Mexican, German, Indian and barbecue. Of course, there are still the favorites - like hot dogs, hamburgers and tenderloins that are out of this planet.
