Vendors can pre-purchase tickets to the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market. The advance purchase of this ticket(s) will provide vendors the assurance that they will be admitted to the field and won’t encounter the dreaded “Sold Out” field. In addition to the guaranteed access to the field, these advance tickets provide access to the EXPRESS LANE. That’s right, no more showing up at 4:30am only to wait another hour or more to get placed onto the field. This is your chance to skip the line and proceed directly to the next available space. This benefit has traditionally been offered only to reserved space dealers who are making a monthly commitment. These advanced tickets are offered on a weekly basis, however there is NO specific location guaranteed, simply the next available space. So whether you want to get on the field bright and early or sleep-in and know you still have a spot these advance tickets are perfect for you (MUST ARRIVE BY 6:30am for ticket to be valid).
Advanced Tickets are subject to all of the same terms and conditions as standard vendor admission.
Advanced Tickets are not available for purchase at the gate or on the day of the event.
There are only 200 Advanced Tickets available for purchase each week.
ONE (1) Space per ticket. If you require multiple spaces you must purchase multiple tickets.
Vendors entering the Express lane with not enough tickets for the spaces they require will be charged $75.00 for any additional spaces.
You must have proof of purchase and the matching identification for your ticket to be valid. Please print your ticket or use E-tickets.
