Taking place at the Warren County Fairgrounds in Indianola, the Rustique Marketplace is a unique combination of flea market, antique show, and vintage marketplace. It is held 3 times per year, and hosts over 60 vendors selling a selection of vintage, industrial & barn salvage, prim, upcycled, junk, rusty treasures and one of a kind items.

The Rustique Flea & Vintage Marketplace is budget-friendly, touting free admission and free parking, in classic Iowa style. Kathy & Judy, the dynamic duo behind this market, grew up in families who had a love for thrifting and antiques. Their love of ‘junk’ drove them to start collecting and selling at yearly garage sales, then being vendors at Antique Jamboree.

In 2014 Kathy and Judy were approached by local businesses that began shopping right out of their garage, and a year later, they purchased the Rustique Ranch Flea & Vintage Marketplace, which became the Rustique Flea & Vintage Marketplace. And when they’re not supervising the Rustique Flea & Vintage Marketplace,  Kathy & Judy can be seen peddling their own wares at other junk events around Iowa, always with a friendly smile!

Nowadays, Rustique Flea & Vintage Marketplace continues to bring in vendors that present old tools, upcycled furniture, wood & farm salvage, primitives, shabby and antiques. The layout of this flea market is easy to navigate & oftentimes held in conjunction with other local events, so it is often recommended to make a day out of visiting here. Last but not least, food and refreshment vendors on-site curb those tummy rumbles.

"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."
