Be Your Own Boss. Control Your Financial Future!
If you have always wanted to own your own business, Mesa Market Place Swap Meet is an excellent place to make that dream come true. Mesa Market Place offers merchants an amazing venue to establish a business and take control of their financial future.

Shoppers enjoy Free Parking, Free Admission, and Free Entertainment in the Food Court. Breakfasts are reasonably priced, too, inviting in early shoppers!

During High Season, Mesa Market has 1600 shop spaces under one roof. Merchant parking is immediately behind their selling space. And Monthly Merchants don’t have to set up and break down weekly because this facility is used strictly as a Market Place.

A Great Value for Merchants!
Space Rental is as low as $250 per 4-week period for year-round Monthly Merchants. Seasonal Monthly Merchants’ space rent starts at $300 per 4-week period. Occasionally larger spaces become available at an additional cost.

Seasonal and year-round Monthly Merchants are able to set up their shop spaces with fixtures and merchandise for the duration of their lease.

Want a secure place to store your merchandise during the week? Steel storage units are usually available. If you already own your own storage unit, and it meets our requirements, you may leave it at the Market Place for the duration of your lease.
