Over 800 vendors descend into the parking lot of the Valley view Casino Centre every weekend for one of the best bargain flea markets in the state. It started in 1976, and since then the weekly crowds have swelled to around 25000. Produce, gifts, jewellery, antiques, auto parts, weird masks, and interior decor are only some of the varieties of goods for sale. It's best to get here early in the morning, or all the good stuff will be gone. Rummaging has never been so much fun!

Visited my friends, did some business. Have a search going for some antique vinyl, picked up much needed cologne, incense and ten ounces of silver.
Always find good deals. My girlfriend found a certain makeup. In stores $28. At swap meet, $4.!!!
Kobey's Swap Meet is one of the best swap meets. They have everything in there. They have clothes, shoes, video games, plants, cell phones screen repairs. You name it they have it. The vendors are always so friendly. I like talking to them making small talk, or even talking to them to get a better deal. What i like more about Kobeys Swap Meet is that there is plenty of staff there to help. There is also security there, that controls any unruly people that might be there disrupting the peace. One time there was a man acting crazy and yelling, the staff quickly reacted and escorted the man out of the premises. That was awesome. Other swap meets allow the sellers to drive their vehicles around while the swap meet is going on. Either some vendors are going home or some vendors are coming in. That drives me nuts. I have to dodge cars with my kids while im out shopping? Thats why I stick with Kobey's Swap Meet. Their rules prohibit their vendors from doing exactly that. I used to sell there as well. Thats how I know. Once the come in, vendors can start their vehicles after 3:30pm. So enjoy this place, and no I did not get paid to write this review. Nor do i work for them. I'm just a guy that enjoys eating breaksfast on a weekend, then going for a walk there.
Just a regular plain swap meet. Nothing special here. Its only $2 admission and free parking. The vendors are friendly. The portable toilets were clean. However there are not as many vendors, not much variety of vendors and hardly any food and drink choices. So nothing exciting. You will have better chances during those holidays when there are many more vendors and people. Its all outside so don't forget to wear sun screen! Updated Review +1 star! I recently visited another swap meet and it was terrible.
Amazing! A huge array of inventory, and a ton of cool items. Definitely worth a visit.
