Since its opening 1996, Mesa Market Place Swap Meet has been one of Arizona’s famous destinations for tourists and locals alike.
Located in Phoenix’s East Valley, this enormous breezeway covers more than a mile of shopping lanes, composing of more than 1500 shops from around 900 merchants. The venue is pretty convenient and accessible to anyone, young or old, who would want to lull for a moment enjoying the ambiance and great live music or shopping from a bevy of unique finds to choose from.
“There is plenty to do, much more than anyone can see in one day,” says Mesa Market Place Swap Meet marketing director Joan Wells. “The place is enormous, yet the pace is relaxed, our merchants are friendly, and there are lots of places to sit and people watch, too.”
Great Finds in One Place
Mesa Market Place Swap Meet is packed with huge groups of tourists and locals visiting their hometown especially during the winter season. It offers traditional, one-of-a-kind merchandise from cheap finds to lavish, museum-quality pieces. Items include apparels and accessories, shoes, home decoration, backyard and kitchen furnishings, landscaping, and built-in barbeques.
Shoppers can enjoy relishing palatable dishes coming from different cuisines at the food court. Breakfast is served from the opening time to 10:30 a.m. “Hundreds of shoppers take advantage of this great breakfast, and then venture out to visit the market. Lunch, pizza, salads, deli sandwiches, smoothies, snacks and more are offered until closing. Shoppers stay longer because they can enjoy a beer, a meal, a sandwich or a smoothie while listening to music,” says Wells.
