Mesa Market Place Swap Meet

If you haven't been to the Mesa Swap Meet yet now is a great time to go. This time of year the vendor booths are full. Once the weather gets hot, and it will come quickly, the vendor booths pair down.

I love to take out of town visitors to this swap meet to get souvenirs. The prices are great and the variety is excellent.
You can find everything from cow skulls to cactus.

The vendor areas are shaded and you can buy food and drinks there including a nice cold beer.

There is usually some live entertainment near the food court. A great spot to enjoy a hot dog and a beer or a soda.

The odds are good and the goods are odd. You will find all sorts of interesting items that you may or may not be able to live without.

I think anyone would enjoy this place. If you are traveling and don't have enough room in your suitcase to bring something back, well you just buy a suitcase there. They have a ton of luggage and purse vendors.

This past weekend I saw vendors selling jewelry at discount prices. There were bead vendors, home decor and of course t-shirts galore.
(The only thing I can think of that I don't like about this place is the loud speaker with a man talking incessantly about the booths and deals you can get. I think it is wasted breath and unnecessary and sort of obnoxious.)

The place is nice, clean and safe. I would recommend it to anyone.
