The market , Daytona Beach!

Ok so let’s swing around and go over the pond or ocean the Atlantic for memories of old that never fade away! As said we love the markets and this is not just a new found thing, we go way back as a family our first experience happened in Daytona Beach Florida USA

This is a sentimental post for us but will tell you a bit about the flea market at Daytona Beach.

Wow I read that the Daytona Flea Market is ranked one of the top five markets in the USA and top 10 in the world! The market boasts hundreds of vendors, a top notch farmer’s market, specialty stores, antiques, and two indoor shopping malls!!! It has grown indeed over the years

I have been coming here since living in nearby Ormond by the Sea and going to college in Daytona Beach, the city I got married and my oldest son was born at Halifax Hospital, and baptized at St Brendan’s Catholic Church in Ormond by the Sea!  Memories galore of a wonderful place of fast speed and fast oh well everything in season. I have done some older post on this stories but not on the market.

My experiences here goes back to 1977! And ended in 2003 when I left Florida for France! Already a French citizen to brag lol! However, all my adult young history was base around here first alone, then with my parents, then with my wife and later my older boy and then visited with the whole gang before departing Florida. A one stop shopping and cultural experience recommended to all.

Hardly a photo left but here I am with my paternal grandfather of Tenerife!And my parents.

The Daytona Flea Market is another that makes a proper event out of the market. At least once a month it offers either an arts and crafts fair or the Classic Car Cruise-In. Daytona Flea Market features stalls stretching over 3 miles and there is plenty of shopping to be had. It is worth getting to this market earlier on in the day, for ease of parking as well as sourcing the best items.

Note that Daytona Flea Market is not the place to hit for specific antiques, but instead is a haven for all things second-hand and curious. Sellers are there to clear their tables, so barter away for some awesome bargains! Located at 1425 Tomoka Farms Rd, Daytona Beach, FL and open Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 9 am to 5pm or 9h to 17h year round.

Hope you enjoy the post and do stop by! for me it is wonderful memories and thank for sharing them in my blog.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
