A Flea Market, in Sarasota, is a type of market where usually second-handed goods are sold or exchanged. The products are far cheaper than those available in regular shops or markets. Factors like location of the market- part of the country, urban or rural area, popularity, economical condition of the local people, size of the market, etc., determine the quality of the products in the market.
Such a flea market can exist indoors, for example in a school building or in a warehouse. It can also have an outdoor venue, such as an open field or under a tent.
Patrons buy drinks & snacks from many food-vendors in the Flea markets, which may be associated with concerts or carnivals. Sale of counterfeit or imitation brand clothing, shoes, handbag, perfumes or accessories, pirated movies & music have been halted by targeting law enforcement efforts on the vendors of some Flea markets in Sarasota.
