🌻 More than just flowers

Spanning 100+ acres, Traders Village boasts a massive flea market, carnival rides, and many food stalls. Here are a few places to hit up before you leave:

  • From bizarre finds to unique thrifts, there’s never a dull moment exploring the market’s hundreds of local vendors.
  • We recommend stopping by the Dinosaur George Museum for real-life fossils or The Pretty Duckling, the largest rubber duck store in Texas.
  • If you’re a thrill-seeker, hop on the many rides on the market grounds like Pharaoh’s Fury, The Fleafall, and Star Dancer.
  • Keep an eye out for food stands selling carnival snacks (Think: turkey legs, corn dogs, and funnel cakes), or head over to the food hall for authentic street tacos.
