One of the joys of Saturday morning, other than not going to work, is the search for a bargain at a flea market. One man's trash might turn into your treasure. It's quite easy to spend hours searching tables hoping to find something for virtually nothing.
Here are some flea market tips.
Barrie Farmer's Market
Information: (705) 726-7880
The market is open year-round, every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Orillia Indoor Flea Market
Fairgrounds Rd, Orillia, ON

35 Vendors, changes all the time, antiques, collectibles crafts & more - like a giant indoor yard sale. New Vendors welcome.
The newspapers are an excellent source for who's holding a yard sale on what day, where, what they're selling, etc. There are farm stands, where farmers sell their own fresh produce, on the various country roads in the area.
