Best Flea Market (2000)

Opa-locka/Hialeah Flea Market

Entering this flea market seems like a trip to the Caribbean. Meandering among the throngs of customers that cram the hundreds of stalls every weekend, one can hear a Jamaican lilt, Haitian patois, and Dominican-accented Spanish. The blaring music is equally eclectic; it ranges from gospel to salsa. You can buy almost anything here, from palm readings to power tools. The most frequently proffered items, though, seem to be toiletries and children's clothes. At the southeast end's bustling food market, you can purchase fruits, vegetables, fish, and meat. Or you can enjoy fresh-squeezed orange juice and coconut milk. Settle back. Take your time. You're in the islands now.
