back to the Shopping directory

Bargain World Flea Market
2401 Dutch Valley Rd. * 219-0140
Every Saturday and Sunday. It's air conditioned. Rent a table for $12 a day.

Esau's Antique and Collectible Market
Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park, at Beaman and Magnolia Ave. * 588-1233
A monthly mania of arts, crafts, antiques, and collectibles. Get there early—really early—for the good stuff, or go late to watch the frenzy. Third weekend of every month. Admission is $2 during summer, $3 rest of the year.

Green Acres Flea Market
Alcoa Hwy. * 681-4433/970-7824
Every weekend, this parking lot turns into a down-home bazaar of unusual stuff; inside there are some of the more typical craft items.

Knox County Regional Farmer's Market
I-640 at Exit 8 * 524-3276
Local produce and meat at United Grocery Outlet, local crafts and garden plants at Mountain Heritage Collection, handmade jewelry at One of a Kind, and creamy homemade ice cream at Cruise Farm—they make a mean root beer float. Arrive early Saturdays—"market day" for many local farmers—for the best selection.
