Our History

Starting out as a self-storage business, founder Richard Ferkich, Sr. noticed some of his tenants had begun selling items out of their units, and in 1980 the Oldsmar Flea Market was born. Nearly 40 years later, the Oldsmar Flea Market has been one of the largest markets on Florida’s West Coast, featuring hundreds of vendors selling furniture, local produce, gourmet food, antiques, modern and contemporary household items, clothing, electronics, jewelry, and much more.

In 2018, the market was purchased by Saint Petersburg entrepreneur, Grady Pridgen, who he has some great plans to spruce up the market and bring in new fun elements over the next couple of years. The Future is Coming!

Great Future Ahead

Pridgen and his team would like to eventually have the market stay open 7 days a week since there will be more to do here. Between the restaurants, events and shopping, the Oldsmar Flea Market will become a more lively and fun experience for tourists and locals alike.

The vision includes different sections for craft vendors, food vendors, farmers market, entertainment, fast food, hubs of restaurants, and the big 12,000 SF Event Center. Customers will be able to go bargain shopping while also enjoying weekly events at the amphitheater, game nights at the sports bar, and dining out for tourists visiting the area.
