we have just been 2018 and we were really disappointed. The flea/antiques/vintage side is very little and it is more of a market selling new clothing etc. Really not worth the drive if you are expecting a flea market. Im not sure why fleamapket have given it such a good writeup as it was very misleading and a wasted trip from the uk.
