Cameron County Chamber of Commerce planning for the 2nd annual Fall Flea Market.  It will be held the same weekend as the Sinnemahone 50k, on Saturday October 18. 

 

“Last year was the first time this event was held.  We wanted to provide an event for those that traveled with participants of the grueling race,” explained Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Johns Solak.  “The race has a ten hour time limit, giving time for those supporting the participants’ time to browse.” 

 

The Fall Flea Market is open to anyone selling food, household items, or crafts, and not limited to Cameron County residents.  Vendors are assigned spots along Broad Street, Third and Fourth Streets.  To reserve a spot a $10.00 fee must be paid and vendors are assigned on a first come first serve basis.  Reservations are being taken at the chamber office at 34 East Fourth Street or by calling 814-486-4314.
