Wichita Flea Market New Location
The Wichita Flea Market’s new permanent location is the Farha Sports Center South, which is located at 3405 S. Meridian Ave. in Wichita.
Farha Sports Center South is part of the Richard A. DeVore South YMCA near I-235 and Meridian in southwest Wichita.
The local market is permanently moving its monthly event to the Farha Sports Center located at the South Wichita YMCA.
The flea market had to move to the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane several years ago because of scheduling conflicts at its original location (Century II).
“The Kansas Star Arena has been a great location for us, but we have maxed out the space,” said the company’s owner, Jimmy Spillman, in a press release. “The move to the Farha Sports Center will allow us to eventually double in size. And our name, The Wichita Flea Market, will make more sense again. We’re very happy to be coming back to Wichita!”
Spillman believes the new location will work for decades to come, allowing them to eventually double in size. In the beginning, the flea market will be able to fit 209 10×12 booths, but that number could grow to over 400.
Wichita Flea Market Prices
Vendors’ prices will stay the same for booths, table rentals, and electricity at the new Wichita Flea Market location.
Admission for adult shoppers will also stay the same, which is $3 for one day or $5 for both days of the market (Saturday and Sunday). Admission is free for kids 12 and younger on either day of the Wichita Flea Market.

About the Wichita Flea Market
This is the biggest flea market in the city of Wichita with hundreds of high-quality vendors of all types with treasures. And because it’s indoors, the flea market will happen rain or shine. It’s definitely the place to be on a weekend day.
There will be a concession stand at each market, and the whole place is climate-controlled so you can shop in comfort – unlike the old Coliseum flea market, which would get pretty sticky in the summertime!
Support local and regional vendors by “Shopping Small” through 200+ booths that include antiques, crafts, vintage items, collectibles, primitives, reclaimed items, comics, artwork, jewelry, toys, and so much more in this monthly flea market operated by a local Wichita Family.
The Wichita Flea Market is fun for the whole family. Kids 12 and under get in FREE to the Wichita Flea Market! The Kid’s Zone will be open with cartoons, games, puzzles, and coloring books. And as always, they’ll have the Grown Up Zone with the big game on tv.
The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Tickets are just $3 for everyone 13 and up; free for kids 12 and under. If you want to attend both days of the market, get the discounted weekend pass for $5. Tickets can be purchased at the Kansas Star Arena box office or look on Facebook for free ticket giveaways.
