First Monday Trade Days is the oldest and largest flea market in the United States. They attract around 100,000 shoppers every month including locals, shoppers from surrounding states, and nationwide. They have acres of land and usually have about 6,000 vendors every month. The First Monday Trade Days has been operating for over 150 years and has a deep history that truly makes it a Texas landmark.

Such a large and busy event may be overwhelming, but the shoppers and vendors form a community. First Monday Trade Days is a place to take your time and slow down. Shoppers speak with and meet the artists and craftsmen and are encouraged to ask questions about the one-of-a-kind items they find. Being such a large area there are some strict rules in place for both the shoppers and vendors to ensure everyone is on the same page and has the best possible experience.

First Monday Trade Days is an age-old tradition. Being the largest and oldest flea market in the country, it is one you do not want to miss!
