A charming combination of both flea market and farmers’ market, Country Market Days is the meeting points to vendors from the region, who gather together once a month between July and October, to create a shopping bonanza that should not be missed. Country Market Days is really easy to find, just off Highway 275 at the Old Pilger Rest Area – about 15 miles east of Norfolk, so there is no excuse not to mark the dates and make sure to attend.

More than 100 vendors bring their goods to please the crowds of hundreds at Country Market Days. The mix of both flea and farmer means that a day can easily be spent at this event, as there is so much delicious food, coffee and other refreshments dispersed among the market stalls. Therefore, it is too easy to recharge and keep on bargain hunting!

The crowds that attend Country Market Days are made up of locals and some that travel in from wider states in search of a bargain and a great day out. It is a well known event in the area, and looks to just keep gaining popularity. Some will be there seeking specific collectable items, but most seem to enjoy casually browsing and grabbing whatever curio catches their eye and imagination. There is row upon row of tables spread out with everything from jewelry, toys, knickknacks and purses to beer mugs, herbs, james and antiques. It is a mish-mash of everything, and easily keeps the family entertained.

The scenery surrounding Country Market Days is incredibly pleasant. The location is marked by a large wooden windmill and overlooks the historic site where Omaha and Sioux Indian tribes battled in 1848. On a clear day, it is said that there is a view of three counties from this single spot. It all adds to the fantastic, festival atmosphere and makes being here all the more enjoyable.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
