2010 dates: germantown flea market


FleaMarket3The flea market is held on the first Saturday of each month during the warmer 2009 seasons:

dates: April 3, May 1, June 5, July 3, August 7, September 4, and October 2.

where: MARC train station parking lot, Bowman Mill Dr. off of Germantown Rd. This is next to the newer 7-Eleven convenience store and gas station.

time: 8:00 – 1:00p (don’t get there at 1:00p!!)

This flea market is an effort of Boyds and Germantown historical societies. (The Germantown Historical Society’s website may still suck.)

Susan Kim sent in this advice based upon her participation in the flea market:

Hey ya’ll. I participated last year. Here are some tips: -Arrive EARLY. I think I got there around 6:30 a.m. and there were already people setting up. -When you pull into the lot, you pay a flea market attendant for your space and then you can park wherever you want to set up (if you have a larger vehicle like a van or truck, I suggest parking on the side street as a courtesy to other vendors and customers). -You can purchase more than one space (each “space” is the size of two parking spaces). -You bring your own tables and chairs. -Have lots of dollar bills for change. It’s a lot of fun and I sold mostly everything. Have fun, Susan

also: This is the link for the 2009 Clarksburg Town Center Farmers’ Market. This is a farmer’s market, not a flea market. We’ll see what they do for 2010.

In 2009 the market featured fresh fruits and vegetables as well as other food products, including eggs, honey and baked goods. The market ran from 10:00a to 1:00p every Sunday throughout the summer and fall.

  1. Will the germantown flea market be happening on July 4th, which is the first saturday in july?

    • I am not positive, but 95% so that this flea market never pays attention to holidays. Rain, maybe. So it will most probably be held on the first Saturday in July.

  2. Thanks very much for the reply, Jack!

  3. Jack, I’m interested in vending this Saturday. Just show up with $15.00? Are tables available? How large is the space? I’m not familiar with the market but a friend has told me that the space is a parking space. What about parking my car after unloading?

  4. Do you have tables, chairs for fea market. Where do you unload and leave your car?

  5. do i need to bring my own table in chair ……in i just show up with 15 dollars in my things….. please e-mail me back thank…..

  6. Hi Jack,
    Hope to finally participate this year. Could you tell me, where do cars park? Are people able to unload and then move their vehicle. Are participants directed to a parking spot. Or are we given more than one spot?
    Thank you!

  11. I just heard about the flea market and was hoping to set up this Saturday, Oct 2 to sell hand made note cards and hand painted furniture (small pieces – end tables, side cupboards, etc). Is the fee still $20 for two spaces and how early should I come to get a spot and set up.

    Thanks, sharon
