Booth space at fall flea market sold out

Published 6:31 pm Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Booths offering a wide menu of food and a variety of arts and crafts will surround the Old Court House Museum Saturday.

“We are sold out,” museum director Bubba Bolm said. “We have no more booth space; we’ve had to open space on Grove Street for the first time in years.”

The flea market goes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and occupies the streets surrounding the museum, with vendors offering jewelry, clothes, backed items and wood art on Cherry, Jackson and Grove streets. Food vendors will sell their wares on Monroe Street behind the museum.

The menu includes meat pies offered by Christ Episcopal Church, funnel cakes from the Boy Scouts, barbeque and other delights.

The flea market has taken place annually for 36 years. The main market is held in October, and the spring market was brought back in April several years ago.

At one time the spring market was held in conjunction with Riverfest, but started being held at a different date in April separate from Riverfest. Last year’s April market was cancelled because of rain.

About 3,000 people attended the 2017 edition of the October flea market.
