Long Description: 
This documentary travels from the gigantic Rose Bowl Market in Pasadena, California, to the busy but modest-sized Eastern Market in Washington, DC, talking with organizers, vendors, food merchants and shoppers. This program is a celebration of the unusual people and the enticing things that can be found in parking lots, fairgrounds, drive-ins, sidewalks and anywhere else someone has posted a sign saying, "Flea Market." It's capitalism mixed with craziness. It's amazing old stuff, great salespeople, the ancient tradition of the open-air market and the possibility of finding a bargain, all uniting shoppers across the nation.
