Outdoor markets have proven no match for COVID-19, with many flea markets reporting better-than-expected turnouts for both shoppers and vendors. Consumers feel safer shopping at an outdoor market since there is more space, so now is the time for vendors to snag spots at some of the best fall fairs and festivals.
FleaMarketZone.com is a great way to find events happening near you, but we’ve also personally picked out some of our favorite outdoor fairs all across the country for vendors to check out. So see which one is closest to you and don’t waste time calling the market to secure your spot!
