I love this flea market. Great buys on brand new Health & Beauty items. Lots of brand new shampoos, body washes, deodorants and razors.They have everything here. I got Dove body wash for women and men, Venus and Fusion razors,Secret deodorant, Tide pods, Glade air freshener kits, new rugs and some brand new brand name cookies, cereals and candy at a great discount compared to regular retail prices. Saved a lot!

First of its.. Its a flea market people, get over it. If you dont like buying second hand stuff, keep your shiney white elitest butts at the mall. Im sure in your facist world smoking should be banned everywhere..well its not so get over that too. The person who wrote about the dogs and animal abuse, well Im sure their pants are on fire or should be. They dont sell dogs there anymore and havent for years. In my opinion, a flea market is about the only real place you can go these days. Everything else is so whitewashed and anticeptic its disgusting.

I've loved going to the Dallas flea market ever since I was a kid, and it has only grown more diverse and interesting over the years as new immigrants have come to participate in buying and selling.
The market offers a fine indicator of the economic and demographic changes that have reshaped Gaston County over the last twenty years. As another poster said, don't expect this place to be neat, orderly, or nice-looking; home to all things cheap, defective, reused, copied, stolen, unregulated and possibly illegal, it offers a place for enterprising people to make something out of next to nothing, from mixtapes and bizarre household nicknacks to low-priced necessities for families who struggle to stretch every dollar. To get a better look at what the Dallas flea market is like, check out my photo essay here:

I have just returned from the Dallas Flea Market. I almost didnt go due to the reviews. Im glad I didnt listen to the negative reviews. This flea market was just fine. Please remember folks it is a flea market. Yes, there is dirt. Its outside. Yes, there are people smoking. Its outside. If you know what a flea market is, I dont think you will be disappointed. However, if you want to go to the mall, go to the mall.

This flea market has exsisted for many years, because of its low mantaince ,low cost, easy acess, and most of all its not a big shots place. So those of you who worry about who smokes, and who sells what at what price,or what for sell. ,stay away. Shop at the mall or where ever. There are still commom folk in this world that just enjoy simple things.If you don't like flea markets ,stay away and have your own yardsale where YOU are in charge!!!!

I have been a customer of this flea market for about 20 years now. I love going there, the place has really come a long way from what it used to be. The one thing I wanted to write about is that game gambling thing that was going on. I thought it was ridiculous and I complained to the manager last weekend (11/13/10) about this. I thought it was a rip off. I came here to start shopping for Christmas presents and they were gone. Thankfully! I thought those people that were playing the game were crazy for even playing. I am so glad they don't allow that crap at that place!!

The place is nicer now. BUT!!! over 50% of the people who sell there are the problem. Look people, this is a FLEA MARKET. Not a department store. Lower your crappy prices. Flea markets are where you are supposed to get great deals on used merchandise. Another commenter said his friend got a NES video game for $15. ARE YOU CRAZY? Guess what dude, you paid way to much for it. And I know exactly which vendor he got it from too. That guy has been overcharging for stuff for years. And idiots keep buying for some reason. I can go right over to the hwy 161 flea market and get better deals and actually find a parking spot.

Ok #1 It's a flea market so its going to be outside there is going to be bootlegged stuff and used stuff hell youll find somethings that are broke too. #2 if your worried about smokers smoking outside in the open then go to the hospital where they don't allow smoking outside ( which i dont understand i mean it is outside for god sake). #3 have you ever been to petsmart???? Their animals my not be out side but they are stuck in cages big enough to maybe turn around if they are lucky. Now with that out of the way 321 flea market is a good place to go they have indoor and outdoor areas and a variety of food places to eat. They have a bunch of interesting things to check out so its a pretty good place to go. If you dont like they first 3 things then dont go please dont be one of them people that complain because you dont like something and get it shut down and mess up everything for other people

I also have been going there for 30 years and had stopped completely because of the condition until recently. The bathrooms are clean other than occasional slob but you find that at Wally World. I was so impressed with the upgrades that I started selling there.

Last time I was there I spent a buck. Could'nt afford more. That bought me a nice juicy papaya and the watermelon was extraordinary (50 year old watermelon snob alert!). I will be there tomorrow selling my stuff; losin' the crib downsizing into a van. I'm glad there is a place I can pass along my tool collection and restored antique furniture, art supplies, electronics, rugs, grinders, buffers, sanders, metal tools, etc...Don't have to worry about hanging all those "garage sale" signs.

Even though it's under new ownership and has been cleaned up somewhat....the bathrooms are an improvement.
NC Dept of AG regulations on selling eggs are still not being properly followed. Being sold with signs stating "Hatching eggs only" but the vendors tell yet a different tale as a loop hole around selling eggs for human consumption, the eggs are usually cull eggs for a local hatchery...most of those eggs are fertile...not to mention on open display in 95 heat all day, hey you like your eggs over easy?

I've been going here since I was a little kid. Yeah, it's changed a little bit and recently they have been sending people out about the safety and health of the animals so I mean it's a place where you can go and meet new people and find things relatively cheap. I flea market isn't supposed to be about super clean, expensive, snobby visits. It's supposed be about finding things cheap, fast, and with little stress as possible.

In all reality, the place is a little dirty but come on! You gotta take the good with the bad, right? If you don't like it - don't go back =) It's simple as that.

A flea market is a flea market. I'm sorry, but I thought that being mostly outside it might tend to make is a little dirty because there are after all, tons of cars that drive up and down the dirt parking lot! A clean outdoor flea market? OK? The animals, I agree with. They need to be indoors only and have plenty of water. As for being a proud American, this does not define believing in your country and standing up for your country! OK so there might be boot legged or stolen merchandise, but hey, don't you find that at EVERY flea market? Simple solution, don't buy it or don't go back. No need to put Gaston County's ONLY flea market down. For the people who have not visited this flea market, I have been visiting it for as long as I can remember, and yes it was by the exit on I-85 when I started going. IT IS A FLEA MARKET!!! There are great deals, stolen merchandise and boot legged items, but what can I say? It's a true, real life flea market. PS I am a 35 year old female from Gastonia.

This has got to be the dirtiest flea market I have ever been to and poorly ran. I was VERY dissapointed. Half the stuff looked like it was stolen! It did not seem like a welcoming place AT ALL. I felt very out of place. I will NEVER visit that flea market ever again. Someone needs to shut down that place or do something to make it nicer. It looks like a hot mess of junk. This place doesnt even deserve a rate. It is like -1000000000. Ew.

I just read the two earlier reviews and could not disagree more. Not only can you find GREAT deals, like my friend who just bought a mint condtion Mike Tyson's Punch Out for the NES for $15, or a wireless router I picked up for $10, but it's also a meeting place for all kinds of people to interact. When I go to the 321 Flea Market I feel like it's what's America is all about, all kinds of different people, getting along & trying to make or save a little gas money. So if your a snob or hater, then stay away from the flea market, but if you love America and all it stands for then the 321 Flea market is just for you!!

This Place needs to be upgraded Badly, Dirty & boot legged products, This gives our local Dallas a bad rep! I am a local Business online & I have better deals on my web site than what most people sell up there! Can Gaston County step in to clean it up or shut it down! http://Gentlenterprize.com & http://youravon.com/rgentle

My Business is Clean & Hacker Safe is this Flea Market?

I never knew places like this existed in the United States! 321 Flea Market is a disgrace! It's filthy dirty, has so many bootlegged items it's a miracle the FBI hasn't raided the place. Smokers are more than welcomed and somewhere there must be an unwritten law that requires them to blow their stinking smoke in the face of non-smokers! The worst part of this h%^ hole is the poor defenselss animals being sold out of the trucks of cars, cardboard boxes, old playpens and hot cages. There are hundreds of them! No wonder Gaston County has such a huge problem at their animal shelters! Oh, I can guarantee you'll see MANY pittbulls and other aggressive breeds there. Not only are they for sell, but their owners proudly throw a chain or heavy rope around the poor dogs neck and walk him/her around proudly. With so many animals, it's only a matter of time before a tragedy occurs and of course, everyone will blame the poor dogs. This place needs to be shut down immediately. It's a haven for hot merchandise and animal abuse!

PROS: Absolutely NONE
CONS: Too many to even begin to list
