The Inside Scoop:

  • Concessions are available, but somewhat pricey. You might want to bring your own drinks.
  • ATM machine available.
  • There are exceptions, but indoor booths tend to have the new items, and antique and vintage merchandise is mostly outside.
  • Beware of booths full of faux antiques -- new items manufactured to look old.
  • For large items, there are several designated pick-up points along the edges of the market. Your seller should tell you which pick-up point to use. Make sure you get a receipt and a pick-up pass. You'll need both to claim your purchase.
