Opening day for 2022 announced for this popular and huge outdoor flea market in Illinois.

Flea Markets Are Very Popular In Illinois And Wisconsin

In states like Illinois and Wisconsin, flea markets are a big deal. That goes for both buyers and sellers. One trying to unload some stuff while others are trying to find deals. You will find them all year long in both places.

Flea Market Season Is Coming Up

Though you can find flea markets any time of the year, I would dare say that the official flea market season is when they can move outside. That would usually be from May until October. Pretty much as long as the weather is comfortable.

Illinois Knows How To Do A Flea Market

When it comes to flea markets in Illinois, they really know how to do it. They are not just a bunch of booths in a parking lot. I would say it is more like a festival with food and entertainment. Some will host celebrity guests. It could be a late-night market or early morning. One thing is for sure, once flea markets go outside, they are massive.

One Of The Biggest And Most Popular Flea Markets In Illinois

When it comes to one of the biggest and most popular flea markets in Illinois, the one right there near the top of the list is Wolff's Flea Market in Rosemont. This one is so big, they hold it in the parking lot of the Allstate Arena. It happens just about every Sunday throughout the summer, depending on events in the arena.

Fans wait all winter for this flea market to start back up and they just announced the opening day. It is Sunday, May 1st from 6 am to 3 pm. You might think that is an early start but the serious shoppers get there before the gates open.
