“Traders Village opened in Grand Prairie, Texas in 1973. Millions of people have browsed, shopped and traded within the 160 acres filled with thousands of dealers offering a little bit of everything, all at bargain prices. Only at Traders Village can you stroll through literally thousands of shops, wheel and deal with the shop owners themselves and get the bargain of a lifetime. From paper clips to bulldozers, on any given weekend, you can find it at Traders Village.”


Traders Village is handicap accessible. There will be picnic tables to sit at. Wheelchairs, electric carts and baby strollers are NOT available for rent.
