WOW! I am one of the largest venders at US1 Metro Flea Market in Columbia and been there since 2003. Is there problems, sure as with any large Flea Market your going to have counterfeit items, and stolen items sold. If you pay the extra fee and have the correct permits to sell food you should be able to sell with mgt approval just like many flea mkts. Yes most flea Markets run all food vending. As for stabbings and shootings I know of 2 in the 10 yrs ive been there. Where I get gas gets robbed, it seems like once a year or more but I still get gas there. I believe there is good in everyone but you have some idiots that will steel/cheat and cause trouble anywhere you go. Maybe you shouldnt got to boston because of one bombing and call it unsafe. Or New York because of all the murders. On a nice weather day both sides are packed, the east side is more new stuff and the west is mostly used stuff. The West side starts early, so be there before 9 am to get the best deals. The Building on the hill (the Castle) is part of the Flea Market and is open Sat and Sun with a lot of used furniture and appliances.

People I haven't experienced this flea market just yet.. BUT.. reading the reviews lets me know the same person (or friend of same person) is writing the negative reviews, and making this very unfair to flea market. My best friend lives in Columbia, and he likes the flea markets, and I plan on being there this coming weekend. If you don't like what someone is selling, don't buy it. And be cautious, but don't go off what this negative person is trying to accomplish (sour apple wanting to spread the sourness to others). I hope you are smiling and having a great day!

The negative reviews about this flea mkt. are true. This place is not safe not so much for buyers, more for vendors. On section known as Far East is a bootleggers heaven on any given weekend (wed. also) you can find mannnnnny counterfeit items purses. shoes dvds and cd. I know this firsthand have vend here for years. John is the manager and has no personality at all. Have been some major incidents stabbings and robbery here. no police presence at all. They are more concerned with whos selling food and taking money away from them. Use to be a decent place, cant even make money here anymore.

This used to be a flea market where you could find things brought out from peoples garages and attics. Now it's nothing but counterfeit products. You will find at minimum three vendors selling bootleg CD's and DVD so obvious that two don't even put labels on their illegal product, just handwritten titles. I used to go 2-3 times a month, now it's once every 5-6 months and I remember why I stopped going. There are no good flea markets in Columbia, there's this one and the other one which is nothing more than permanent vendors selling junk or counterfeit items.

Tables are over priced, security sucks, theft is high,conerfieter are taking over aqnd the people that have cash to spend are scared to stop at this market, the crooked people will be at your car door to try and sell you fake gold in the parking lot.

If Your looking for a safe clean place to sell check out the Barnyard Flea Market just up the street

Us 1 Metro Flea Market is a wonderful place to go to sell items that you have either lying around or from your business. The prices for the tables cannot be beat and if you are selling items that are in demand, you'll make that back before you finish unloading good. There are lots of options to chose from and they accept Visa or Mastercard.

PROS: Inexpensive
CONS:

we went to this market evry week for a long time, the vegitibles are so fresh, price so cheap, second hand stuff so many, but teh problem with it is that no traffic light at the entrance, to get out of the market is hard, when the cars are driving at 50 miles per hour and with out traffic lights to curb the two way cars! there was a a severe accident last year, we heard a big bang but did not knwo what's going on, when we tried to leave, we found that a helicopter blocked the road!

PROS: goos price, variaty of stuff
CONS: hard to get out

My family and I spend many Sundays crusing the US 1 flea market. I love the fact that this flea market not only has the usual dealers but also have tables set up outside for yard sales. There are at least 200 sellers set up each weekend. I usually buy my produce, the prices are great. There are also several sellers set up each weekend selling fresh seafood.

I just read the other reviews and find them to be both unfair and unfounded! If you have ever been to a flea market then you know that no matter where it is, you're going to have some bad apples! You will find counterfiet items at them all! That does not mean that ALL sellers are bad! Dont let those comments take away from all of the honest, hard working vendors! I've sold at both markets. This one & Barnyard & decided to stick with this one due to the amount of traffic that comes thru! Be sure to look at all of the sellers who are not under the awnings because these are the ones that are selling stuff from thier homes or grandma's attic! Lots of treasures to be found! I hope that this review will help clear up the 'fear factor' that obviously some rival is trying to use!
