BEACON – The City of Beacon Flea Market will be returning to the Henry Street Parking Lot every Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. beginning April 18 through mid-November.
The city’s farmers’ market’s outdoor operations will run from May through November 2 in a new location in the DMV parking lot at 223 Main Street. Both markets will be following COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
The Beacon Flea Market is predominantly a vintage and antique marketplace that has been operating in the Henry Street parking lot for over a decade.
The city council recently authorized a new five-year contract with the market manager, Common Ground Farms, permitting the move to the middle of Main Street in order to increase foot traffic, expand operations into the larger space, and bring back live music.
Both markets will be following COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Vendors will be socially distanced and masks will be required. Hand sanitizer will be available, and the managers will be monitoring both vendors and customers in order to foster a safe and comfortable experience.
“The Beacon Farmers’ Market and the Beacon Flea Market have been widely popular with residents and visitors alike,” said Mayor Lee Kyriacou. “I look forward to another robust outdoor season. It’s been a pleasure to work with management for both markets; I wish them a successful and prosperous year.”
