In a rare opportunity, the Quakertown Farmers Market and Flea Market has open spots for vendors to join their busy and successful market. Most of the current vendors at Quakertown are loyal, multi-generational merchants that have been part of the Quakertown family for years. “We are doing a blitz for new merchandise businesses,” said John Chism, General Manager of Quakertown Farmers and Flea Market. “We are looking to bring in new blood and start them off on long running operations.”
A perennial favorite destination for area shoppers, the Quakertown Farmers Market and Flea Market has been in business since 1932, and is a well-known staple in the farmers and flea market industry. The market is a long time member of the National Flea Market Association (www.fleamarkets.org).
Unique and dedicated merchants who are looking to start their own businesses or expand an existing one and be part of a high traffic market, will find a happy home at Quakertown. Some key categories open at the market are for dollar store merchandise, all types of apparel, and even services from hearing aid vendors to shoe repair.
Chism says that they believe in blending services and the traditional flea market experience together. “We have the farmers market and our indoor and outdoor flea market. We want to offer a blend of categories to offer one stop shopping. We see this as an opportunity for new vendors to interact with our existing vendors and our established shopper base.”
