is something very wrong at the cowboy junction flea market?...
the owner of the Flea Market Buddy Maxx , uses a PA to address his dealers, He uses near violent threats and very obscene language, this is over a PA system that is very loud,( this can be substantiated by going there and asking a few dealers) does what appears as eccentricity change into rage when there are few witnesses?, is there also a KKK/anglo saxson israelite group that is in association with this place and white racism in the shadows?,,although sometimes Black people set up there and are quietly tolerated.
Buddy Maxx's son Johnny was murdered and were the person or persons involved ever found?, this happened out of state, but there have been many rumors at the market that it was a white supremacy style execution..sometimes a murderer can be close at hand...

Let me tell you something Buddy Maxx has not thing to do with verbal abuse it's his wife, and let me tell you something Freda and Buddy are family to me soo don't you talk about them that way. I was vendor at cowboy juction, and its a very family oriented fleamakert. Granted Freda yells alot over the PA, but if the vendors pay on time she woul'd have to yell like that. So Mr. Ogden don't bad about my family like that.

P.S. I want you to say sorry

Wow, so let me get this straight. You went there, heard loud harassing voices over a PA and lots of unsubstantiated rumors? Then you posted them here to see what kind of fire you could make. Sounds a lot like a UFO nut visiting Graceland and has all the intelligence of one as well. I see you are in Utah, how often have you visited our sunny little state? Do you come here enough and visit enough flea markets to see what cultural trends exist where before assuming the lack of one trend imposes the meaning of another? I have visited flea markets all over this state, the east coast, and the rest of the world and everyone has it's own cultural agenda. Few markets in the south have majority non-caucasion dealer/vendors unless it is a market that trends towards a certain culture. In the Webster market for example, the 'races' or cultural groups are all pretty much divided into little cultural zones, and not by direction of the market owner, it is the vendor's choice where they sell. It is this way at all of these markets. People tend to congregate in groups, if you don't believe me take a real leap of cultural faith and visit your local mall.

The manager at Cowboy's flea market I believe is a thief and a crook. He tried to charge me twice for a vendor spot that I had paid for the week before and he didn't mark it reserved. He is and arrogant ASSHOLE. They never have to worry about me returning. I'm also going to file a complaint with the better business bureau.

First of all, some of you should make an attempt at actually checking your sentence structure and spelling. When you compose remarks such as those posted here, you should read what you write before you send it on. Bear of Ohio is demanding an apology because he is kin to people who run a nasty flea market. He wants Mr. Ogden to apologize. Had he read the remark, he would have noted that Ogden is the city where the writer is from, not his name. Then you have East Coast Trader explaining that people separate according to culture / race. That is insane and illegal. At the Webster market, there is a Hispanic section because they deal with Hispanic products. The rest of this market is divided according to antiques, wholesale or other flea market, not by culture or race. The other markets I have set up at, Belleview, Stokes, Howard's and Port Richey have no cultural / race separation. That is illegal.
As for Cowboy Junction, I have set up there once and will never do that again. Both owners scream over the PA system in words consisting of vulgarity and racism. They insist on embarrassing vendors who are behind or even if they think they are behind. And, after insulting the vendor across from me, she showed him her proof of payment to him but never got an apology for his making the mistake. Many vendors are vile, racist and filthy. I worked there just once and heard racist remarks about Blacks, Hispanics and Arabics throughout the day from many vendors as well as their customers.

There is no longer a PA system at cowboy junction flea market! I am the assistant manager, and all of you on here should not speak on what you don't know on, or speak badly about people who have passed on!

Lots of people running their mouth about the P.A. system thats been gone awhile. Question for the manager. Was at another market today and rumor going around that Cowboy Junction is not going to reopen this fall. You know how rumors get started by want-to-be vendors so I want to get the real answer. A good seller and buyers market and in the area beats Stokes by 1000%.

I have been going to Cowboy's since the late 70s!This is my favorite flea market ever! I was there when it cost only two dollars for a space.I also remember when Buddy Max and his wife would make a big pot of spaghetti and offer anyone who wanted some. They also gave out calenders and cassettes.Also,they had Jam sessions outside, open to anyone that wanted to join in!They are no longer here to offend themselves,so if you can't say anything good about them keep it to yourself!For myself and others Buddy Max was a legend.May He rest in Peace!
