Want to Have Fun this Weekend? Go to The Orange County Marketplace!
Wondering what to do this weekend?
For those of you without any plans, I would like to recommend you to the Orange County Marketplace! This is an amazing place where you'll be able to find anything from a pair of shades, some vegetables, or even your next car. With hundreds of vendors, you'll be sure to find something you want here.
The adult admission here is $2, and children under 12 are free to get in. If your admission ticket ends in "00," well, you're in for some luck. You've just won yourself a free hotdog at the food stands. I've been going to the OC Market Place for many, many years, and have won the hot dog....... once!!
The Market Place is HUGE, and you'll need a good 2 hours to just walk through it all. If you spend some time shopping, you'll need to budget your whole morning or afternoon browsing this place.
One of my really close friend has worked at the OC Market Place for over 10 years selling surf clothes. You can find anything from clothes, shoes, accessory, furniture, crafts, to cars here. You'll also find fresh produce and bread here as well.
Personally, I love to shop for my veggies here because they are such a good deal. And fresh too! I've also purchased shoes, shirts, and socks here at the marketplace. You can shop around to find your bargain as well.
There's also another swap meet right across the street going on every Saturday and Sunday at Orange Coast College. If you have enough energy, I dare you to go and check that one out after you finished with the Marketplace. :)
