If you need help navigating through the sellers and finding what you'd like, an office in the center building is staffed and ready to point you in the right direction. The market is open throughout the year on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Hartville Marketplace & Flea Market

1289 Edison St. NW, Hartville, OH 44632

The folks at Hartville Marketplace & Flea Market must be doing something right since they've been in business for over 80 years. They've moved from their original location to one with 12 acres of outdoor space and 3 acres of indoor shopping. The marketplace also hosts special events such as coin and bike shows throughout the year and has been named a Top 20 Flea Market in the U.S. by Flea Market Insiders.

Four Seasons Flea & Farm Market

3000 McCartney Rd., Youngstown, OH 44505

The Four Seasons Flea & Farm Market is located on the grounds of a large former airport just three miles west of Pennsylvania, so you'll have plenty to explore when you visit.

In addition to flea market finds, including home decor, clothing, toys, and much more, you'll also be able to shop for fresh fruits and veggies, home-baked bread, and other farmers market goodies. The market is open Wednesdays and Sundays year-round.

Peddlers Flea Market

A post shared by The City Flea (@thecityflea)

You'll find The City Flea, a curated urban flea market, once a month at Washington Park and other locations from April-December. Currently, in its 12th year, the flea market has attracted many shoppers over the years and now sees thousands attend each market, and some of its sellers have grown from hobbyists to full-time business owners. Vendors sell items that are unique, creative, and visually interesting, including everything from plants to artisan pizzas, so there's truly something for everyone. Even kids can get in on the fun and money-making since some of the markets also feature kids' booths.

Treasure Aisles Flea Market

320 N. Garver Rd., Monroe, OH 45050

Drive north from Cincinnati about 25 miles, and you'll come to Treasure Aisles Flea Market, which covers over 44 acres and has over 500 shops. Make a day of it and enjoy some live music and entertainment on two stages. You can even start your day with breakfast from one of the concession stands and stay to enjoy a hot dog or taco for lunch. The market is open Saturdays and Sundays year-round, and admission costs $2 cash per car.

Westland Flea Market

4170 W. Broad St., Columbus, OH 43228

The broad mix of vendors sells everything from trinkets to high-end items such as TVs, computers, and antiques. A snack bar is available, serving sandwiches, fries, ice cream, and other treats. The market is also home to a "flealess" version of the market, where flea market owners sell goods for dealers who aren't available. This convenience means that even if one of the dealers is away or their booth is closed, you can still buy from the flea market's owners and employees.

Greater Columbus Antique Mall

1045 S. High St., Columbus, OH 43206

Located close to the Scioto River, Greater Columbus Antique Mall offers five stories of eclectic items housed in an interesting historic building.

South Drive-In Theater and Flea Market

3050 S. High St., Columbus, OH 43207

The South Drive-In Theater and Flea Market shows drive-in movies and serves as the site of a large outdoor flea market. You'll find various goods for sale, including electronics, tools, clothing, vintage pieces, art, and more.

Try a wine slushie at the following eight spots around Northeast Ohio.

West Main St. Winery, Brewery & Cider House

234 W. Main St., Ravenna, OH 44266

At West Main Winery, Brewery & Cider House, all of their libations are made in-house using the finest ingredients from throughout the world. You'll find a variety of slushies to suit your tastes, and they all start as non-alcoholic versions until your favorite wine is added. Try the pomegranate, which uses nectar of the vine pomegranate frappe, mixed with Six Seeds Wine for a refreshing taste of summer. The Very Very Berry, with nectar of the peach mango frappe mix and peach wine, is also a customer favorite this time of year.

Named after the year in which the barn it calls home was built, 1875 Winery & Restaurant has plenty of space in which to gather with friends and enjoy a slushie. The barn has three floors of dining area, and the winery and restaurant has two outside patios, two pavilions that sit on a lake, and more. You can even sit up in the silo or by a 24 feet tall, four-sided fireplace or a water wall. While you're there, order a slushie of one of their wines, such as the Drop'd Out, a sweet and fruity pink option, or the Gatsby, a semi-sweet red.

CLE Urban Winery

2180 Lee Rd., Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

CLE Urban Winery, located in the historic Cedar-Lee neighborhood, hand-crafts and bottles their wines onsite from premium grapes. You'll find the winery's atmosphere to be chic and interesting, so you'll be comfortable unwinding with a refreshing Frose Wine Slushie. Order a glass or carafe of three-plus glasses of the slightly sweet drink made with the winery's Rust Belt Rose. Or for some extra refreshment, try the Frose on Vacay slushie, which is topped with a floater of Malibu Coconut Rum. If you'd like some to take home, three varieties of Frose Wine Slushies—Hometown Heroes Peach Chardonnay, Rust Belt Rose, and Buckeye Blackberry Merlot—can be ordered for takeout.

Lost Trail Winery

5228 State St. NE, Canton, OH 44721

You'll find Lost Trail Winery on 13 acres in Marlboro Township on the outskirts of Canton in a setting and building inspired by Adirondack camps in New York. Their wines are made from carefully chosen grapes and then hand-crafted in small batches. Favorites include Kienuka, a sweet wine that will remind you of the grape juice you drank as a child, and the Altitude, a dry Chardonnay with aromas of yellow apple, pineapple, cantaloupe, and more along with tastes of pear and peach. If you'd like to try one of their wines or a wine slushie made for the day from one of their signature wines, you might want to time your visit for when a band is playing to further increase the fun quotient.

Hans' Place

6011 Old Route 39 NW, Dover, OH 44622

A wine manufacturing facility, tasting room, and cafe, Hans' Place aims to offer something for everyone on the menu. One of its two outside decks is the perfect place to sit since it creates a natural amphitheater surrounded by hills and woods. Instead of looking out, you look up and see woods and a waterfall, so it's a great spot to take selfies with your friends. Order a white, red, or blush wine, or choose one from the large fruit and berry wines section. Blueberry, blackberry, peach, and strawberry are ideal for ordering as a slushie, either by the glass or pitcher. If you can't decide what you want, try a four- or six-glass flight of two ounces each before ordering.

Winery at Wolf Creek

2637 S. Cleveland Massillon Rd., Norton, OH 44203

Winery at Wolf Creek lives up to its slogan of "wine, romance, and a view for miles." The beautiful setting feels like it's a world away, making it the perfect spot to enjoy mostly Ohio-grown wines. Bring a picnic or buy a cheese and cracker basket at the winery, cool off with a slushie, and spread out to enjoy the view. If you'd like to bring your dog along, visit from 5-8 p.m. from May-October, when pooches are welcomed on the patio, food trucks visit, and local rescues are supported.

Sunny Slope Winery

12251 OH-39, Big Prairie, OH 44611

Sunny Slope Winery has been a part of the community since 1927 and caters to wine connoisseurs as well as those just starting to expand their interest in wine. The small-batch, hand-crafted winery specializes in delicious fruit wines bottled right at the winery. Try the Big Prairie White, a light sweet moscato grape wine, or the peach, strawberry, or plum wines. Each is delicious on its own or in a refreshing slushie.

Nauti Vine Winery

3950 S. Main St., Akron, OH 44319

If you're looking to relax with a wine slushie in hand, Nauti Vine Winery's cozy, laid-back atmosphere and great views of the Portage Lakes makes the perfect spot. The menu includes a nice number of reds and whites as well as a rose from Nauti Vine, and additional guest wine selections are also offered. If you need help finding a favorite, you can try three wine tastings for $5. Once you've made your choice, order it in a cold, refreshing slushie in a glass or a tumbler if you're feeling even more thirsty. Head outside to the brick patio on the lake, and enjoy the view along with your slushie and an appetizer like a meat and cheese plate.

Cheers!
