Additionally, the Rice County Fairgrounds will be hosting the Cannon Valley Farmers Market simultaneously. Food trucks will be onsite during this event too. So it should be a great day!

It is exciting to offer this event once again at the Rice County Historical Society grounds, as we prepare it to be a Covid Aware event with everyone doing their part to ensure it to be a safe and positive experience to make this Flea Market as safe as possible for both the vendors and the shoppers. Vendors for the Flea Market will be spaced out on the grounds of this event in awareness of Social Distancing (6’+). Face coverings will be required for both the vendors and shoppers during this six-hour event. Hand sanitizer stations will be set up throughout the grounds. Social distancing signs will be posted for kindly reminders to stay 6’ apart. The RCHS will monitor the Governor’s mandates and will follow them if there is any changes for outside events. With the help of all, this can be a successful and safe event.

Vendor spots available are 10’x20’ stalls and can be reserved for $20 prior to the day of the event.
