For the past 22 years, the Awesome Flea Market in pastoral Shepherdsville, Kentucky, just 15 miles from Louisville, has welcomed buyers and sellers from all over the state as well as surrounding regions. The indoor and open-air flea market is not only famed for its mix of eclectic retailers—from leather goods to gourmet dips to pet supplies—and local food vendors, but also for its own Awesome Lazy River, which provides miles and miles of floating fun for thousands of guests each year. There are indoor and outdoor selling spaces available every weekend—the ideal test market for new products and ideas. Open every Saturday and Sunday.
