Third Weekend June 2019

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.

Restaurant Update:

Toni’s Kitchen is featuring fresh Chef Salads and cold plates this weekend. Beat the heat and grab yourself one of these this weekend. Heck, get it to go and enjoy at home later. (Oh, yea beating the heat with these!)

Diane’s Restaurant has a great Baked Ham and Homemade Mash Potato Plate this weekend as well as their daily homemade spaghetti dinner plates with homemade sauce and your choice of meatballs or Italian sausage (YUMMY!)

Vendor Update:

Some of our vendors are moving around, sprucing up, down-sizing or up-sizing and a few are just taking the summer off but will be back in the fall.

Market Update:

With vendors downsizing, leaving and moving around there are a couple of booths that are now open for rent. Come by the office to see what is available and how you can create your very own small business. Great opportunity for craft person’s of all kinds as well as Fruits and Vegetables, Specialty Items, etc.

The market is still working on upgrading their brochure, adding more events to attract more people and sprucing up the market. They are also asking the monthly vendors to try and keep their spaces clean and not quite so crowded.
