Labor Day Weekend Flea Markets in Louisville
Need some fleas? A holiday weekend in Louisville always brings the Kentucky Flea Market to life at the Kentucky Expo Center. Terminology somehow becomes so commonplace that we forget its origin. Occasionally it becomes difficult not to wonder about terms like flea market. Flea market originated from the French "march aux puces", a name that was used for a stand in Paris that specialized in shabby second-hand items that possibly contained fleas. Fast forward to the modern flea market. Full of new items and valuable antiques, the Kentucky Flea Market is most assuredly flea free.
