Festival Flea Market Hall is a modern-day indoor marketplace in Pompano Beach, Florida. One of those one-stop shopping destinations, you’ll find absolutely everything you need right here – and more!

 

There are over 800 stores under one roof. With everything from designer clothing to high-end perfume available at discounted prices, Festival Flea Market is the perfect spot to spend a rainy day in Florida. And, as it’s air-conditioned, it also provides a necessary retreat from the scorching heat of the Sunshine State in the summer months.

 

You can’t beat bargain-hunting inside the 400,000 square foot (37,161 square meter) Festival Flea Market Hall at any time of the year though. After all, it’s so much more than a mall. With an antique market, indoor farmer’s market, and family-friendly events and activities all year round, there is something to suit all ages.
