Flea Market returns to the State Farmers Market

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The State Farmers Market brings an old favorite, the flea market, back to Montgomery.

On the second Saturday of each month, vendors will set up shop from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on the State Farmers Market grounds near Garrett Coliseum.

The flea market made its official return to the Farmers Market last month, and today the number of vendors doubled. All of the vendor space is booked for each month the rest of this year.

The State Agriculture Department says opening the flea market is part of a plan to revive the State Farmers Market.

The state thought it would have to close the Farmers Market because of budget cuts, but with financial help from the city, it remains open.

The flea market will open again on October 8th.
