Bargain hunters and those looking for something a little different than a Saturday at the garage sales may want to pay a visit to the weekend flea market.

It is a place to shop for cheap fruit, to wheel and deal with the vendors or to experience the flea market culture.

It is a world rich with color. The images in this essay capture a glimpse of the character and style of our local flea market.

The El Rancho Swap Meet and Flea Market opens from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. It takes place at the El Rancho Drive-Thru Theatre at 555 El Rancho Drive.

For information, call 331-3227.
