Visiting the Williams Grove Flea Market

Williams Grove Farmer's and Flea Market is one of the largest flea markets in the Mechicsburg, Dillsburg and Camp Hill areas in Pennsylvania. It's located in the parking lot and on the property of the Williams Grove Historical Steam Engine Association and is just a few minutes away from the famous Williams Grove Speedway.

If you're unfamiliar with the area, you can plug 1614 Williams Grove Rd. in Dillsburg Pennsylvania 17019 into your GPS for driving directions. The flea market & farmer's market has FREE admission to the public. If you're looking to sell your items or if you're a vendor, you'll have to pay a vendor fee for that. There are over 450 vendor spaces available every Sunday, so please reserve your space early.

The flea market is open every Sunday, weather permitting. The gates open at dawn and close at 2PM EST time. If you want to find the best of the best goodies, I suggest arriving early in the morning. You can still shop for fresh produce & find great deals in the late morning & early afternoon hours too, but the best pickings are bright & early in the morning.

Once you enter the area, you'll find several rows of vendors and the aisles are really wide. We took our grandchildren and had no issues with pushing a stroller or tugging along a wagon. You can shop for new and used household goods, tools, toys, clothing for the family, craft items, homemade foodie items, collectibles, antiques and more!

If you get hungry and thirsty while you're there, don't worry, you'll find plenty of food truck vendors along the way too! On the day we visited we enjoyed grilled hot dogs, ice cream and beverages. We found the food to be decent and affordably priced.

Every time we go I like to buy some fresh produce from local farmers. You'll find several vendors selling all kinds of fresh fruit and vegetables. I like to pick up my in-season corn-on-the-cob, peaches, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, watermelon and cantaloupe from one of the farmer vendors there. The product is reasonably priced and a LOT fresher than the stuff you find in your local grocery store.

One thing you won't find here is public restrooms with running water. I really wish they would build a nice public restroom for patrons which I feel would be better than the porta potties that sit on the property. I don't know about all of you, but I hate them and won't use them. I suggest patronizing a business BEFORE you go, so that you won't have to use them!

This sounds like a wonderful flea market with a lot to offer. I am sure I too would buy the fresh produce and enjoy looking for other items. My only problem is that I also don't like to use the PortaPotties.
