Treasure Hunting in Key Largo,
for Landlubbers
The Florida Keys have
always been a haven for
treasure hunters. Whether
you are scuba diving deep
waters in search of shipwreck gold or bargain hunting our unique island shops,
nothing quite beats the thrill
of finding something special.
Key Largo's flea markets
are a great place to start.
The U-Haul Flea Market
at the cut (MM103.5) has
seen better days. Twenty
five years ago it was on a roll
but it has been a downhill
roll. The market has only a
few dealers. The manager
explained to me that people
are renting storage space
just to store items they sell
on Craig's list so there are
fewer dealers.
The good dealers left are
Jack's Used Bicycles and the
lovely Merle, who has the
most delightful, gently used
clothing at her charming
shop called Lunatique. The
downside is that the location
is hot and dusty, it‛s hard to
park, among the trailers, and
walking among the pot-hole,
rocks and boulders is treacherous. It is open Friday thru
Sunday but only a few of the
dealers open every week.
The Lion's Club Flea
Market, open Sundays only,
can be hard to find. Look for
it oceanside at the traffic
light at MM 100, behind the
bank. There is a wide range
of mostly new items there in
the parking lot. It stretches
around the corner and down
a busy road. Be careful walking with children and watch
for traffic. Get there
before 2 or you'll miss it!
The Island Market Mini
Mall located at MM 102
inside/outside the Dollar
Tree Shopping complex is by
far the best and most versatile and rewarding shopping
experience on the island.
Outside there is a food
court, car wash, fresh fruit
and vegetable market, seafood market (fresh from the
fishermen!), vapor dealer,
orchids, flowers and plants,
lawn statues an antique/
thrift shop and a teak furniture outlet. Sometimes there
are vintage cars on display.
Inside and behind the
Dollar Tree Store you will
find a mini mall with 11,000
sq. ft. of air-conditioned
shopping comfort. The bathrooms are spacious and
everything is sparkling clean.

Everything imaginable solar!
Beautiful fish carvings.
If you are looking to
become a merchant this is
the place. There are still a
few spots available and you
can even try it out on a daily
rate. Everyone there is so
friendly and helpful you will
want to stay forever!
My favorite shops are,
well, all of them! The Amish
Cheese and canned goods
shop has wonderful stuff,
the bakery items are delicious, the artists are amazing, you can get handmade
soaps, healthy organic teas,
jewelry, fabulous nautical
signs and all kinds of items
at the best prices, the latest
style island sun dresses and
clothing, collectables... whew!
There‛s also a used bookstore where you can trade in
your old books, and the largest wholesale distributor of
beautiful teak and patio
furniture in the Keys, supplying hotels and commercial
businesses as well as residential customers. And then
there‛s the southernmost
largest “everything solar”
distributor. You can install
your own solar panels at a
fraction of the price and
they pay for themselves in
no time!
The Island Market is
open from 9 to 5 Friday,
Saturday and Sunday. For

merchant call 609-287-1767.
