Visiting flea markets and antique shows in the Midwest is a popular pastime for many Iowans. Every year my family visits flea markets throughout Iowa so when Only In Your State released a list of what they called the best flea markets in Iowa I was excited to see it.

Flea market

Personally, I've been to two of the four spots on this list and can say I have really found some great stuff at these markets. If you've been to one of these spots let us know what you think on our app.

The List Of Great Flea Markets

I plan on checking out all these spots when they are up and running again.

- The Geneva Market

Located at Maynes Grove,  They’re typically open a full weekend. Everyone is welcome to visit all day long. The organizers of this event are very proud of this market. OIYS went on to say,

You'll find vendors like the Iron Garden with incredible yard art, handmade items, and crafts. With up to 100 vendors, this flea market is worth the trip. Plan to visit the Geneva Markets twice yearly, usually once in May, and once in September

- What Cheer Flea Market

located on the main road of a small town at the Keokuk County Fairgrounds in What Cheer. This massive flea market often has more than 500 vendors, I've been to this one, and it is great! You can learn more on their website here. This is one of the biggest and best flea markets in Iowa.

-  The Wapello Flea Market

My personal favorite is located at 709 US-61 in Wapello. It is a great event to check out if you're a fan of flea markets and love shopping. Information about this event goes on to say
