You Could Spend Hours At This Giant Outdoor Marketplace In Iowa

There’s a little town in Iowa with a very quirky name: What Cheer. It was once a booming coal town but the mining days are long over, and What Cheer is now a sleepy place.

Most of the time, that is.

For three weekends each year, boom times return to What Cheer, as thousands swarm this little hamlet for the What Cheer Flea Market. It’s a huge event and if you haven’t been to What Cheer, you need to make the trip.

Here’s why.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Each day that the market takes place, the gates open at 7 a.m. Arrive early for the best deals! Interested in more great finds? Here are some more amazing flea markets you absolutely have to visit.
