First Monday Trade Days

America’s Oldest Flea Market
This flea market is considered the granddaddy of all Texas fleas—and some say it is the oldest continuous flea market in the country. (Confusingly, it's not held on the first Monday of the month, but from sun-up to sundown from Thursday to Friday before the first Monday of every month.) Over 100 acres of land are flea territory here, with buildings like the Old Mill Marketplace, The Village, and The Dog Alley sheltering vendors selling everything and anything under the sun. The Canton Marketplace building is home to more than 300 vendors who proudly display finds with a particularly Texan country western feel, so if you're in the market for a new pair of cowboy boots (and who isn't?), this specific building is the place to go. The market is also rife with pure entertainment: free concerts, wine tastings and street food from all over Texas make a day out shopping here into a holiday.
