Say goodbye to lazy Sundays because the Beacon Flea Market is back for its third season. Starting on April 7 and running until October 27, the market is open on every fair weather Sunday from 8am to 3pm.
More than 50 regular and one-time vendors sell a variety of items, including furniture, antiques, purses, cookware, vinyl, books, handmade jewelry, and local crafts.
While meandering through the booths, you might stumble on Margie Flynn's handmade, brightly-colored baby hats, or a M*A*S*H vodka bottle drip from Paul's New World Antiques—both of which are highlighted on the market's website. Vendors are invited to submit photos of their items to the website, which is updated weekly to offer customers a sneak peek of the offerings for the upcoming Sunday.
Beacon Flea Market offers free booth space for Beacon schools who are fundraising and Beacon residents who wish to vend. In an effort to support the local community, the market does not sell food or new items in bulk, and the market workers encourage attendees to check out the local cafés, restaurants, and shops.
Located in the Henry Street parking lot behind the Main Street Post Office, the Beacon Flea Market is open on Sundays from 8am to 3pm; admission and street parking are free.
