Anyone in Utah who loves browsing through flea market filled with nostalgic treasures has probably already heard of the Urban Flea Market. Taking place one Sunday each month in Salt Lake City, this flea market is one of the most loved and best attended in The Beehive State. A well organized and established market is a rare thing in Utah, as it is more an area for impromptu yard sales, so this is definitely an event that any collector or thrifting enthusiast will want to save the date for.
The Urban Flea Market really stands out from the other well-known flea markets in Utah. These others tend markets to be a little over-run with vendors who source cheap and newly made items, and as a consequence, each stall can tend to be a bit of a copy of each other. This could not be less true for the Urban Flea. Curios and oddities crowd the stands, and it is hard to find the same item in more than one place! Because of this, visitors usually end up with quite a list of goods that they want to take home and collectors too can fill their bags.
Rather than summarize items that can be found at the Urban Flea Market, it may be easier to simply say you will find a little bit of everything. If it is old and holds a dear place in the memories of visitors, it will probably be for sale somewhere here. It is a large flea market, and though it is open for the full day keen shoppers will find that it can take the best part of the day to fully explore it. Therefore, it is a good idea to arrive early and make the most of it.
With so much to look at, so many toys and so many friendly people to talk to, the Urban Flea Market is the perfect way to spend a Sunday with the family.
