Big Pevely Flea Market
Market Square: Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Outdoor Market: Sunday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
It’s the real deal at this St. Louis area market. “There’s no counterfeit merchandise here,” owner Lynn Parker says. “We’re members of the National Flea Market Association, and we work real hard to keep this a family-friendly place.”
And the whole family could find something special in the two indoor buildings or at the outdoor vendors who gather here. “You don’t know what you’re going to find here from week to week,” Lynn says. “It is true that ‘one man’s junk is another man’s treasure,’ and that is the heart and soul of flea markets. I can’t tell you what the most valuable piece has been to leave here, because it is all valuable to the person who found it.”
In case you discover something special, Lynn’s crew is prepared with regular visits from experts who provide appraisals on the spot. But it’s not just treasures that can be found here. Services are big on the vendor list as well. Watch and jewelry repair is available, Lynn says, and a hair salon is set to open soon.
