Nashville Flea Market (The Fairgrounds Nashville) - Nashville, TENNESSEE

For country music fans and aspiring songwriters from around the world, a trip to Nashville, Tennessee is the ultimate pilgrimage. But Nashville has something else that makes the trip worthwhile: the Nashville Flea Market, a monthly flea market also known as the Nashville Fairgrounds Flea Market.

On the fourth weekend of every month, from Friday through Sunday, the Nashville Flea Market takes over the state fairgrounds and becomes one of the largest flea markets in the United States. Thousands of shoppers flock to this truly massive flea market, which has something for every type of flea market shopper.

From bric-a-brac to antiques, refurbished & vintage furniture, dollar items, wholesale stuff, crafts, jewelry, vintage clothing – you name it, the booths at the Nashville Flea Market probably have it. You just need to plan enough time to browse. Don’t be discouraged by booths selling fake purses or tube socks for a dollar. It is easy to avoid these booths because there are several buildings and different outdoor areas around the Nashville Flea Market.

In addition to the excellent variety of booths, the vendors at the Nashville flea market are very friendly, excited to talk about what they are selling, and willing to haggle – especially if you can pay in cash. Just follow the regulars to find vendors who bring quality items to sell at the fairgrounds, and keep our tips in mind to get the most out of your Nashville flea market experience.

When you are in Tennessee, try to return several times to get a feel for where the real treasures are. When planning your trip to the Nashville Flea Market, keep in mind that not every month or even every day brings the best flea market buying and selling experience. Because the Nashville Flea Market is open year-round – January through December – some days are more convenient than others. Sundays may give you better prices and the Fairgrounds market will be less crowded. Also, keep in mind the best season for the Nashville Fairgrounds Flea Market: choose a cool day – you will need your energy to browse through all those stalls.
