An astonishing 130 vendors participated at last month’s flea market and craft fair. The record-setting booths offered a wide variety of antiques, handmade crafts, collectibles across many genres, and unique products and foods. Despite the needs for social-distancing, booth registration has almost tripled over the summer events.

Only two flea markets remain on the schedule for the 2020 season. Don’t miss this month’s event on Saturday, September 19. Shoppers may browse a wide variety of booths at the Dodge County Fairgrounds from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm. This FREE event will be held rain or shine. Beaver Dam is conveniently located between the Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay areas.

The events are held both indoors and outdoors and parking is always free. Attendees are encouraged to dress appropriately for the fall weather, bring their own shopping bags, totes and wagons and wear a face covering, while respecting social-distancing measures.

When attending the September event, expect to find unique pieces of furniture, more vintage clothing, toys and dolls, handmade crafts, seasonal décor, metal and woodwork pieces, vintage glassware, tools and more. These events are a treasure-hunters delight!

Interested in participating among the record numbers this fall? Even more vendors are welcome to host a booth at the fall flea markets. Only one direct-sales booth per business is allowed at each market. Questions regarding availability should be sent via email to [email protected]. To register, simply complete the easy online registration form to secure your space for September. Vendors who wish to register for October should use the following online registration form. The booth rental fee is only $20 per event (plus a $1 online processing fee).

Vendors have been very thankful for the overwhelming support of their local, small businesses throughout the summer markets. Many vendors report having record sales during the 2020 season.

Seasonal produce and decor will also be available this fall. You may also find pumpkins, apples, seasonal baked goods, nuts and dips for fall entertaining. Concessions will continue to be offered, supporting Frosty’s Fosters Animal Rescue.

The final flea market is scheduled to be held on October 17, rain or shine.
