By 2015, Flea World had taken the title of the largest flea market in America. Having begun in 1980, the market had become a legend among shoppers due to its untraditional nature, according to VisitFlorida.com. Boasting over 1,700 booths, some unusual services offered at Flea World included wedding reception services, psychics and hair stylists. Visitors could have their taxes prepared at the market, and Flea World’s Fun World offered a miniature amusement park for children. Some attractions at Fun World included miniature golf, bumper cars and go-karts.
Flea World also offered traditional flea market products and services, such as dollar stores, electronics and a pet store. Unofficial sellers could offer their unused home items via Flea World's Garage Sale Row. The market also included a variety of restaurants, which ranked among the cleanest in Central Florida according to the State Restaurant Inspectors Department.Learn more about Business Resources
