Alamo has a wonderful blend of Texan and Mexican cultures, and there is no better place to experience the combination than the Alamo Flea Market. Because of Alamo’s proximity to the Mexican border, visitors can enjoy traditional street tacos and dance to the sounds of conjunto music, all while purchasing a new pair of cowboy boots. The giant outdoor market attracts hundreds of vendors and customers from Mexico and the U.S., including Winter Texans staying in Alamo.
Food, Music and Goods
Since 1984, the Alamo Flea Market has been a place for local vendors to sell used, new and homemade items. The bazaar features countless booths that feature a variety of affordable items – everything from homemade salsa to used cars. Owned by Valley’s Market Place LLC, the market also houses the Alamo Dance Hall. Every week, the hall features Mexican musical acts that play traditional conjunto, Tejano and Norteño music. Stages are also stationed throughout the venue at every corner featuring local musicians.
A Winter Texan Favorite
The flea market is adjacent to Alamo Rec Veh Park, a popular recreational vehicle and mobile home park. The community hosts Winter Texans and retirees 55 and older from all over the country each season, offering a convenient private entrance into the Alamo Flea Market.
A Staple of Alamo
For more than 30 years, the Alamo Flea Market has attracted out-of-towners far and wide who are seeking a multi-cultural experience. With Winter Texans spending as much as $800 million in one season in the South Texas region, the eclectic venue remains the place to go for bona fide Mexican eats and bargain buys that can’t be found anywhere else.
