Local market opens in Spences Bridge

This Sunday is opening day for the new Spences Bridge Farmer & Flea Market.

Spences Bridge is embarking on a new endeavor; a Farmer’s / Flea Market is coming to town!

The Spences Bridge Community Club (SBCC) has taken on hosting this exciting new opportunity for the town and surrounding area. The very first market will be held on May 4 at Clemes Hall on Hwy 8, from 10 am – 2 pm, and  every Sunday afterwards.

There will be a wide variety of things to shop for – from quilts to coffee! The following is a sample of what to expect; fine handmade soaps, quilts, pottery, jewelry, beaded arts, lavender products, plants, seeds, moccasins, drums, paintings, glass mosaic art, woodworking, clothing, body products, garden art. Second Hand items – from household to fine collectables Culinary Delights – seasonal fresh produce, certified home canning, jellies, pies, cakes, teas, herbals blends. We expect new arrivals every week, always something different. And of course there will be a concession selling snacks.

The committee is extending an invitation to local musicians to take to the stage and serenade the vendors and shoppers. The opportunity is there for selling cds and putting out a donation jar or hat. Please call the number below if you are interested in signing up for a Sunday.

Anyone wishing to rent a table (only $5!) or if you require any other information please call 458- 2489.

While planning the market idea the SBCC was very concerned about taking business away from the local businesses. It was this thinking that came up with a Sunday Loop idea. The club has been working with all of the surrounding businesses and has developed a brochure with a map advertising all the local fruit stands, thrift store, restaurants, and so on. Folks are encouraged to visit these businesses and they will receive a 10 per cent discount on their lunch or peaches or whatever the case may be (Sundays only).

The SBCC would like to thank the following for the support for our start-up costs: Bridging to Literacy, Gold Country, TNRD, and Cook’s Ferry – we couldn’t have done it without you!

So take the Sunday drive to Spences Bridge and join us for the fun and support LOCAL crafters and growers!
