“I was a vendor at the Super Flea Market in Evansville, IN for over 20 years,” says Terry Walters, the new General Manager of All Peddlers Flea Market in Henderson, KY. The original Super Flea Market closed down in 2014, and All Peddlers was reopened in June of 2015 across the Ohio River from the original location. Just this past February, Walters acquired the market, and has already begun taking steps to align the market with his vision. “I used to run a flea market in Arkansas about 20 years ago,” says Walters. “When the previous owner of All Peddlers discovered this, he asked if I wanted to take over as General Manager.”
Under it’s new ownership; All Peddlers has approximately 85 vendors each weekend spreading over 185 booths. The market consists of a large foyer, a main showroom, and three side rooms named Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee after the market’s bordering states. Walters is in the process of repainting, resigning, advertising with a new billboard on highway U.S. 41, and adding more rest areas to the market for shoppers and seniors. He is also working on building community engagement, by encouraging local organizations such as churches and scouts to utilize the large market foyer for their own fundraisers. “Last Saturday we were almost full to capacity,” says Walters. “A large crowd like that is really encouraging.”
All Peddlers’ vendors offer everything from computer services, antiques, used items, furniture, Amish products, flowers and floral arrangements, knives, coins, t-shirts, and lots of new merchandise. “About 80% of our products are new items,” says Walters. Vendors can rent for just one weekend or the month, however there is a discount for renting monthly. Both outdoor and indoor booths are available.
The market is located in Henderson, Kentucky and is open the 1st and 3rd weekend of every month Friday – Sunday. Winter market hours are Friday 10 – 4, Saturday 9 – 5, and Sunday 10 – 4. Summer hours are Friday 10 – 5, Saturday 9 – 6, and Sunday 10 – 5. Thursdays are available as a set-up day year round. Parking and admission are free for all visitors. “My family has been in the flea market business for over 30 years,” says Walters. “We encourage everyone in the tri-state area to come out and visit these entrepreneurs,” he continues. “Whether your here for collectibles, antiques, bargains or just to see friends, come and help us grow.”
