Shady Hollow Flea Market

Shady Hollow Flea Market

I’m spending a quiet Memorial Day at home with Derrick and baby Eli, but I’m looking forward to hitting the Shady Hollow Flea Market later on this season.

Nothing says summer  like a nice, sunny day of wandering and treasure hunting, and it’s even better when it’s so close to the lakes.


If you’re in the Detroit Lakes area today, you should stop out — Memorial Day weekend is one of the three long weekends that the market is open (keep reading for more details below).

The market is located east of Lake Melissa, just five miles south of Detroit Lakes on Highway 59 south.


Shady Hollow features 23 permanent vendors in their boutique cabins, over one hundred daily vendors from the region and lots of free parking.

The owner, Chad Stenerson, has made some nice changes since my last visit, especially to the Shady Hollow Grill Area, where he added a pergola to shade the courtyard so you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch or snacks in a little more shade.

If you go, let me know if you find anything cool! I’m having shopping withdrawals and can’t wait until I have the little one on a schedule and can take him on shopping adventures with me.

No matter what you’re doing today, I hope you have a fantastic Memorial Day. And veterans, thank you all so much for your service.

  1. This weekend was the first I have been to the flea market and it exceeded my expectations! I got some amazing deals and I plan on making it a regular trip to find new goodies!

  2. Hi Alicia,
    Thank you for your interest and kind promotion and representation of Shady Hollow flea market.
    You may be interested in knowing that new in 2014, Shady Hollow will be open every Saturday all summer. To pique interest, we have a farmers market, artisan fair and the flea market.
    Thanks again for your blog post.
