Beloved Mississauga flea market closes down for good
When the COVID-19 pandemic forced thousands of businesses to shutter, we all knew that some would never open their doors again.
Sadly for Mississauga residents in search of a great deal or vintage find, the Dixie 401 Flea Market appears to have closed for good. The flea market is marked as permanently closed on Google and employees in the building told insauga.com that there are no plans to reopen the market that they're aware of.
The loss is profound, as the flea market once boasted over 500 booths and was known for its claim to give customers the “everything under one roof” experience with its indoor farmers' market and furniture warehouse outlet.
The flea market was a popular weekend destination for shoppers in search of antiques, rugs, kitchen accessories, vintage finds and more.
Fortunately for shoppers, all of the popular storefront shops are still there, including Game Experts and Gotham Central.
RIP Dixie 401 Flea Market, you—and your bargains—will be missed.
