Walnut Creek Flea Market

This was my first visit to Walnut Creek Flea Market. I enjoyed the busy atmosphere, vendors' wares and the way the building was built to accomadate handicap people. I rode my scooter with ease through the short distance to a door. I loved the many doors to gain acess into the building, instead of hunting for a "main entrance." I noticed a horse drawn wagon shuttling people to the building and to their vehicles. That was a definite plus for customer care. While shopping, my scooter's battery died. I was stranded in an aisle. Vender's were very kind and tried to be of help. Although there was nothing anyone could do, I appreciated the fact that so many offered ideas to get me moving again. In a few minutes my husband came up and pushed me out. I was disappointed I didn't make it to the Food Court Section. I was told there was a scooter rental but it was 4:30 p.m., almost closing time so I declined renting one. However, I think that is a great feature, allowing customers to use the Flea Market scooters. There were many different types of items I had never seen at other Flea Markets. One shop, My Abby's Attic was the type of place I really enjoyed. The faux food was great! I made some purchases and am having fun with the fake tea cup filled with tea, cola in a glass and a cake. I already have other faux items in my kitchen so this was a special "find." I also liked the Tee Shirt shop. They offered bigger sizes and the shirts were priced reasonably. Very seldom do I find 5X & 6X shirts. Keep the big sizes in stock for us portly customers! I purchased some baskets that were very unique and picked up extras for gifts. I would definetly return to Walnut Creek and enjoy this Flea Market again.

Flea Markets
by: Sam Donn

I have been coming to the Amish area for many years and the OLD Market on the Hill was great. We have visited both Markets, the one in Walnut Creek and the one in Berlin. We feel the one in Berlin - which was the one that was on the hill in Walnut Creek, was by far the best of both Markets.

When we went to the Walnut Creek Market and asked a vendor if there was another Flea Market close, she and the owner both said that this was the only one. We found the other Market driving into Berlin and relized what had happened. We will never go back to the Walnut Creek Flea Market!

LOVE THIS MARKET
by: Bob & RoseLee

We are from Fairmont, WV and we have been to this flea market several times since it opened. It is one of the nicest markets we have ever been to and the selection of merchandise is great. RoseLee loves to shop in the leather purse spot. Bob loves to eat the BBQ chicken. We will see you next season!

GREAT FLEA MARKET
by: Barry & Sue

We stopped at this market last week with our friends and we just loved it. First, it is very easy to get to it and we found lots of activity outside in front of the market. Elvis was singing and kids were watching them make kettle corn. There were lots of vendors outside. The staff is so friendly and the food is great. We had some BBQ chicken and it was delicious. The inside is just full of lots of vendors and there is so much to see and buy. We bought several items and found them to be fairly priced and of good quality. We met the market manager and she was a very friendly lady. This is the best flea market we have been to in a long time. Don't go to Amish country without seeing this market.
