    Referred to as one of the “largest yard sales” in the Southeast on 20 acres with over 100,000 square feet selling area, SMILEY’S FLEA MARKET is a fun adventure of bargain hunting!  As you would expect from any flea market there is a huge variety of almost anything you can imagine for sale at bargain prices.  It’s even a great place to buy your fresh homegrown produce and plants. There are permanent buildings including a giant antique mall as well as the huge outdoor area with 700 selling spaces.  Open since 1984 in Fletcher NC, this well-established flea market is a weekend tradition to many shoppers (from 12,000 to 17,000 people attend each weekend!). 

    Hours: They are open Saturday and Sunday from 6 AM to 5 PM….but the outside venders are usually gone by 1 PM so plan to shop in the mornings. 

    Location:  Smiley’s is located a half mile north of Interstate 26, Exit 44 at 5360 Hendersonville Road (Highway 25), Fletcher NC 28732.
