The Bristol Flea Market is holding its Grand Opening this weekend inside the former Walmart at the intersection of Veteran Highway and Bristol Pike.

Doors open at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, though early birds are welcome starting at 6 a.m. The venue closes each day at 4 p.m.

With 120,000 square feet of space, more than 200 vendors will be selling their wears. The heated, indoor space will have a food court and is handicap accessible.

Originally, organizers had planned for the Bristol Flea Market to start up this past January and only last a few months. But an issue with the fire alarm system delayed the opening.

This delay may have been a blessing in disguise. In the meantime, enough vendors signed up for the flea market to keep the market open even longer. Now, the Bristol Flea Market will run every Saturday and Sunday all year long.

Some vendors will be selling antiques, while others will be selling handmade merchandise. There is a list of prohibited items to sell, including weapons and live animals.

The cost for vendors to set up shop is $30 per day, or $50 per weekend.

Parking and admission are free. The new market is located at 100 Commerce Circle in Bristol Township.
