First Monday in Canton is the world’s largest flea market. If you live in Texas, especially North Texas, you’ve heard about or been to Canton at least once. Canton is a city of approximately 5000 people. One weekend every month the population grows to over 200,000 visitors. A lot of people make Canton trips their fun girls outing of the month, a tradition of sorts. I remember being ,oh, 7 months pregnant and navigating the crowded flea market all day long with “the aunts” There’s lots of good food and tons of shopping. Most prices are substantially discounted from what you would pay elsewhere and the products are unique.
We are a Military family and have lived in a few other states and I have to say, probably because it’s the style of decor I’ve grown up with, I missed the homestyle rustic Texas accessories I’m so accustomed to finding around here. That’s not to say there wasn’t lots of fun stuff elsewhere, I just missed the things that remind me of home.
