How Are Rankings And Ratings Determined For Flea Markets All Over The World?

Before I even get started, I do have a question. Don't worry, I'm not asking you specifically. It's just a thought that came up in my mind. How are the rankings and ratings determined for flea markets all over the world?

Does an "official" from the "W.F.M.A.," the "World Flea Market Association," (by the way, I made that up) travel to all the flea markets across the world to determine which is the best? Are there standards each location has to meet for consideration? Does the winner receive a title belt, trophy, or ring for the championship?

According to thecrtazytourist.com,

Named by Jet Setter Magazine as one of the “Top 10 Flea Markets in the World” alongside Paris, London, and Oslo is one of the best fleas to visit in Illinois.

 

Running for over 40 years, the busy market is the perfect place to browse, find unique collectibles or take the family for a fun day out.

 

With hundreds of indoor, outdoor, and shed vendors – selling everything from jewelry to books, furniture, and clothes – the market has become a popular place for members of the film industry to find unusual pieces and props, as well as a treasure trove for real collectors.
