Come prepared: Wear comfortable shoes and clothing  suitable for the weather, as you’ll likely spend a few hours exploring  the market. Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunscreen, and a reusable  shopping bag or wagon to carry your purchases.

Arrive early: If you’re searching for the best deals or  hoping to snag highly sought-after items, arriving early is key. The  early hours of the market often provide the opportunity to browse  through the selection before it gets crowded.

Bring cash While some vendors may accept credit cards,  it’s always a good idea to have cash on hand. Smaller vendors may not  have card-processing capabilities, and having cash allows you to  negotiate prices and make quick purchases.

Keep an open mind Flea markets are all about  unexpected discoveries. Embrace the element of surprise and keep an open  mind as you wander through the market. You never know what hidden gems  you might find!
