First weekend for Pasco Flea Market

Posted: Updated:

Cars line the streets for miles waiting to get into the Pasco Flea Market today.

It's the first weekend for the market to be open. Managers say it's one of the biggest opening weekends and has continued to grow ever since it began in 1987. The market is free to the public on Saturdays and costs 75 cents on Sundays. Managers say it's also a good place to find work as a teenager.

 "This place is actually fairly special in the idea that it's one of the few places left around, if you're under the age of 18, to get a job," manager Kyle Anderson said. "You can come in for the weekend, walk around the vendors and find somebody that needs help loading or unloading. As a middle or high school students you can find a job here in this bad economy."

The market will be open every weekend until December.
