The Largest Outdoor Market in the World Is Not Too Far From Us

I’m a firm believer that there is nothing you can’t find at First Monday Trade Days.

The weather is warming up and the road trips are calling our name. We long to hit the road and experience this thing called life. One of my goals is to get my behind to First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas. We have some fabulous outdoor markets in our area, but this one is the largest in the whole wide world.

They do say that everything is bigger in Texas, but how big are we talking? says that Canton’s outdoor market sits on more than 100 acres, playing host to more than 3,000 dealers who set up to sell their goods. You can take part in First Monday Trade Days each Thursday through Sunday preceding the first Monday of every month. More than 300,000 visitors attend. My family has attended in the past and they’ve come home with anything from home and garden items to food and even new pets.

Think that’s crazy? It gets better.

Canton’s outdoor market also features restrooms with showers (in case you sweat too much while shopping) and an RV park in case you want to park it for multiple days. The Spruce has also named First Monday Trade Days one of the Top 10 Flea Markets in the country.
