I drove by to see what might be new, like most flea markets, there was a healthy mix of usual vendors and new ones. I have been going here for at least a few decades! Now it is being torn down. No future for osowskis orchard.

The Osowski's Flea Market building has been demolished and the property was sold to new owners. The site will now be used by a tree removal company and chipping trees will take place on this land. Monticello no longer has a flea market.

Horrific mold smell slaps you in the face upon entering this facility. Extremely run down. We also wondered how food could be served under such disgusting conditions. EPA/OSHA where are you? Vendors wares looked like leftovers from a 3rd world country rummage sale. The whole place should be condemned. Why would Monticello want to promote this horrid place?!

It was sad to see the state this flea market is in. 20 years ago this place was amazing!!! But today only about 30% of the stalls were full and the building and covered stalls are in in horrible condition! 1/2 of the building is closed due to what they say is vandalism. But looks more like poor upkeeping.

This place should be condemned,black mold everywhere on the inside. How can they even serve food here. Womens bathroom only 2 our of 5 toilets worked. Outside buildings falling apart, hardly any vendors waste of time and gas! Annandale swappers meet is 100% better.

Don't waste your time going here. The place is run down and not worth the trip. The buildings and the outdoor shelters are rotting and falling apart. The venders are basically selling stuff that should hit the dumpster.

Osowski's Flea Market in Monticello, MN has been making improvements this year. They have both indoor and outdoor vendors but on different days. Indoor only on Sat. 8-3 and indoor and outdoor on Sun. 8-3. They also have fun foods inside the building like corn dogs and mini-donuts but also have great hamburgers and fries. Breakfast foods are served 8-10:30... More
