Find it at the Nashville Flea Market

July 25, 2012 in Editorials

Every fourth weekend the Nashville Flea Market sets up at the Fairgrounds in Nashville Tenn. No matter if you collect pewter, teapots, books, quilts or just jewelry, the Nashville Flea Market is sure to have it. There are homemade jams, country ham, fresh vegetables and fruit. You will find both new and vintage. I have my favorite booths, one being Jackie Chitwood’s in the Women’s Building. Oh what fun treasures she has there! There are toys, movies and all kinds of goodies for children. I have found everything from crocks, coverlets, furniture and food to cat toys and books. Also, there is homemade kettle corn made fresh daily, and a cafe if you want to rest a bit and have a bite to eat. The prices are a little high but the food is note worthy.

Most anything you are looking for can be found at the Nashville Flea Market located at 625 Smith St. off Nolensville Road at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. There are 1300 booths or more, so plan a long visit and wear comfortable shoes. It is definitely worth the trip to Nashville! Hours through November are Friday 8-5, Saturday 7-6 and Sunday 7-4.
