UPDATE: Due to nasty weather conditions this coming weekend, The Peddler will be postponed one week.
It’s that time of year again! The Peddler, the city’s only weekly outdoor vintage and retro market, is back and ready to kick off the 2013 season,
this Saturday, April 13th (the following Saturday).
The Peddler will once again be located in front of Parish Commons (a sponsor), at the corner of Elmwood and West Ferry (656 Elmwood Avenue). “The Peddler’s inaugural year was such a success, though it started rather late in the season last July, so we are very much looking forward to the opportunity of gaining real momentum by starting things off at this early stage in the spring season,” according to co-organizer Scott O’Connor. There will be a nice turnout for this coming weekend, yet The Peddler should see steady growth each successive week, based on several of the vendors returning from winter spent away, buying and selling in warmer climates. This should most certainly add to the already eclectic mix of goods that you can be sure to find at this distinctive flea market.
A telling development, The Peddler has implemented for the coming season, in response to last years traffic, an increase of hours of operation, from 8am-4pm every Saturday. They have also added Sundays as an option for rain dates, festival weekends, and for other special events, as needed. It will be very exciting indeed, to see how this fun, funky, community market will continue to morph, expand, change and grow throughout what’s sure to be a long, prosperous season ahead.
To follow the progress of The Peddler, “like” the Facebook page. And if you have retro, vintage or unusual antique items and you’re interested in selling at the market, this is a great time to get into the market. Even if you aren’t ready to start opening weekend, email us and we’d be more than happy to provide you with further information and/or reserve a spot for when you’d be ready in the season.
This Saturday, take a walk down Elmwood and see what The Peddler has in store!
