Flea Market re-opens on Saturday

The 2009 State Fair has ended, but that doesn’t mean the fairgrounds shuts down until next October.

In fact, as soon as the gates were closed on the last night of Fair, we all took a deep breath and started to reorganize and prepare for the many upcoming events.

Throughout the year, the State Fairgrounds hosts everything from coin shows to a roller derbys, but there is one event that happens nearly every weekend — the Raleigh Flea Market.

Raleigh Flea Market re-opens Saturday, Nov. 7

Raleigh Flea Market re-opens Saturday, Nov. 7.

On Saturday, Nov. 7, at 9 a.m., flea market vendors will re-open their shops, where you can buy swing sets, salsa and so much more. There are food vendors, lots of interesting antiques and gadgets, and definitely something for everyone.

Free parking is available on State Fairgrounds property, including many spaces inside the gates, and admission to the flea market is also free.  The Raleigh Flea Market is open every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., except during the month of October. (You can probably guess why!)

Other events happening at the fairgrounds this weekend include the Capital Area Handbell Festival in the Kerr Scott Building, Junior Woman’s Club Fall Furniture Consignment Sale in the Holshouser Building, 25th Annual Neuse River Train and Railroadiana Show and Sale in the Expo Building and the Duke Children’s Hospital Benefit Hunter Horse Show at the Horse Complex.

About Blue Ribbon

Natalie Alford blogged for the 2009-2011 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: I work at the Fairgrounds year-round, so I'm always in the middle of the fun! During the Fair, I work with the press office team to organize events and exhibits, and log a lot of miles on my pedometer. I'm also the County Agricultural Fairs Coordinator, which means I license, promote and visit North Carolina's agricultural fairs and enjoy thousands of blue ribbon entries every year. I hope to see you at the Fair!
