Second Monday Trade Days Bowie Texas
Second Monday Trade Days Flea Market is over 120 years old and still going strong. Trade city is independently owned by Mark Shillingburg and has become a major part of the Second Monday Trade Days. Dallas Hutson started Trade City back in 1982. In the beginning it was just a parking lot then eventually a covered pavilion was built and later some enclosed booths along with outside spaces. As time went on Dallas built a mall building and more enclosed booths.
In 1997 Mark Shillingburg bought Trade City and continued the improvements such as putting in asphalt roads, installing new electrical hookups and adding more buildings. There are now over 100 enclosed booths, 100 covered spaces and 200 outside spaces. A new restroom with showers is complete and there are plans to improve parking in the near future.
The Second Monday Trade Days are over 120 years old and provide a unique shopping experience. Covered walk ways and pavilions protect customers from the weather and friendly vendors make you feel welcome.
Be sure to visit Trade City the weekend before the Second Monday of each month.
