Every child should know the joy of spending hours with your family at the flea market- dawdling, window shopping, playing, and eating the delicious foods. No matter which part of town you live in, there is probably a flea market near you. We’ve rounded up all of the best flea markets across Houston for your shopping, bargaining, street-food-eating pleasure!
The flea markets in Houston are open on the weekends and often have special events in addition to their regular shopping. Each vendor decides his own payment type so be ready with multiple forms of payment. Many flea markets may also have parking fees, so have cash on hand for that.
Most of these flea markets have both indoor and outdoor areas and offer plenty of room to safely space out so you can enjoy bargain hunting while practicing social distancing. Many are also currently operating with limited capacity and requiring face coverings to further keep visitors safe.
