First Monday Trade Days - Canton, TEXAS
Texas boasts the world’s largest outdoor market: First Monday Trade Days. Spreading over a ranch-size domain of more than 100 acres, Canton’s historic market dates back to frontier times, when people traded animals and produce while waiting for the judge to see them on First Monday court days.
These days, 3,000+ dealers gather to sell their wares from Thursday to Sunday before the first Monday of every month, drawing more than 300,000 visitors. Antiques, collectibles, and handcrafts predominate, but you’ll also find good deals on vintage clothes (especially Western wear) and all kinds of household stuff.
This self-contained community has an RV park, restrooms with showers, and a wheelchair-accessible civic center where the pricier dealers set up shop.
A special guide is printed for each market event, and you’d be well-advised to buy it; this flea market can daunt even the hardiest shoppers, so don’t even try to see it all. Take your time, and stop and smell the local color. This being Texas, there’s plenty of that around, too.
With so many iconic cities and trendy areas to explore, Texas is home to some of the most popular vintage shopping destinations in the whole of the United States.
