Jasper Flea Market

I visit the Jasper Flea Market in Pickens County every now and again. What I wrote a couple of years ago is still true. "It was a pleasant surprise.  This small market has cleaned itself up. I found antique tools, glass and ceramics along with the usual flea market thrift store items. One shop had an amazing collection of cookie jars and I spent way too much time in another  shop with antique radios, tools and other stuff from yesteryear. Prices varied but for the most part were less than the larger markets."

Once upon a time this small market had thrived but over the last decade came on hard times. Well before the recession hit the place began to take on a junkyard feel with piles of broken and useless articles cluttering the edges of road that loops through. That's all gone.

Though not a large market this place is worth the stop if you are on Hwy 515 passing through Jasper. Located just off Hwy 515 at Allred Mill Rd. and Flea Market Rd, Jasper, Ga. it is easy to find. Traveling north from Marietta, after you pass the red light where Hwy 108 crosses 515, look for the cell tower on the left. That will be Allred Mill Rd. Turn left. The entrance to the market will be the first road on the right.
