North Carolina's Largest Indoor Flea Market
The Cooks Story
Tobacco Warehouse to Flea Market
Cooks Flea Market began in Cooks Tobacco Warehouse in 1982. The flea market took place in the tobacco off-season usually October - July. Then the flea market vendors would move out and the tobacco auction would move in.
In 1990 a “Members Warehouse” building became available, very near the original Cooks building. That became Cooks Plaza Flea Market. In 2001, the markets were combined. By this time, tobacco auctions had become a relic of the past.
