Uncle Billy's Trade Lot - held on every first Saturday of every month. It is one of the country's oldest flea markets, and attracts people from as far away as California and Florida. "First Saturday", as it is usually referred to, began as just a farmer's market selling such items as flour, corn, and livestock from Uncle Billy Lane's farm. Over the years, it added items such as tools and eventually turned into the big flea market it is today. You had better get there early though, after 9 o-clock, you're going to have a tough time getting a parking spot!
