Some go for the fresh produce. Some just look for bargains. When I spot a flea market, I love taking a trip back to the 80s. Seeing board games, tech and gadgets I grew up with for a couple dollars gets me all giddy. Especially when I’m tempted by 2024 technology like the Apple Vision Pro that sells for $3500. Yours truly also just bought his first electric vehicle. So as a big kid, being able to buy that tech that wow’d me back in the 1980s for a dollar or two is fun. And a lot easier on the wallet.

The Pinellas Farmers and Flea Market opens Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7am and wraps up for the day around 2pm. It’s a at 13600 Icot Boulevard in Clearwater. That’s at least what you would pop in the GPS. To me, it seems more like it’s located on Ulmerton Road in Largo. It’s right near the ice arena. After living in Pinellas for years, I finally stumbled upon the flea market recently. I’m not usually up early on weekends and by 3pm, when you go by the field, you’d have never known what was going on just an hour or two ago.

For those who miss the Wagon Wheel Flea Market in Pinellas Park, this is pretty much the next best thing. There are locally grown vegetables, handmade arts and crafts, very very used tools, antiques and some vendors even sell household products. If you’re hungry, there are plenty of food trucks. There’s quite a bit of Asian street food in particular.

But for me, it’s all about going back in time to my childhood of the 80s. And the Pinellas Farmers and Flea Market never fails. Here are some of my favorite recent finds I spotted.
