The sunny, balmy heat in the state of Alabama means there are many nice days throughout the year to go antiquing or browse the shelves, booths, and tables of local flea markets. There is an abundance of great flea markets in Alabama; some of them are open on the weekends, some all week long, and some only sporadically throughout the year. Some of Alabama’s flea markets are held outdoors, and some are tucked away into old department stores or warehouse-like buildings, but all of them offer a great place to find a bargain on items like furniture, used clothes, collectible trinkets, or fresh, local produce.
