The weekend before the school kids go back is fairly hectic time of year. Even though most of our vendors here don’t have all the usual “school” supplies you just never know until you try. So we hope to see you and yours coming by and enjoying the great food at our two restaurants, finding treasures in many of our booths and even pick up some of your supplies for the coming school year. Remember next week to be aware of our school zones and please stop when school buses stop to let children out. Going back to school earlier than usual is through everyone off just a little so please be patient.
Happy 4th everybody! Hope you and yours are having a safe and wonderful holiday weekend.
We had quite a few storms passing through yesterday in the county and surrounding area and not everyone was able to have their fireworks display. A few places around the tri-county area will reschedule. Even though they are loud and disturb our pets it is still awe-inspiring to watch a really good coordinated fireworks show.
We have finally reached the last weekend in June. It is sad when we wish the days to pass quickly but most of our vendors hope for cooler weather and the return of our northern visitors. Don’t get get us wrong we love our local buyers too but right now everyone local is on vacation, spending money keeping cool and spending time with their kids swimming, boating, fishing, etc. Also, the summer crops are in and everyone is pretty busy getting those to market hoping to make lots of money to catch up on the bills before they can even think about spending money on collectibles and other fun things our vendors offer.
You wouldn’t think that June would have 5 weekends but strangely enough this year it does. We have had quite a bit of rain lately which is nice as everything is going green again but when it stops it seems to get hotter and muggier, if that is possible. That is really a shame as it probably means that July and August are going to be worse?!?!?!

Happy Father’s Day to all those who fulfill that role for someone
The Chiefland Farmer’s Flea Market today is not as busy as it will be tomorrow but come on down anyway. You just never know what you’re going to find, the crowds are lighter and our hard-working vendors have lots to offer if you are shopping for the father figure in your life. Most vendors open up around 8:00 am every Saturday and Sunday. We are working on getting more to open on Fridays as well. So, please, come on down and check us out on Fridays as well as the rest of the weekend.
