Is This Wisconsin Town the Center of the Flea Market Universe?
This weekend, the Center of the Flea Market Universe is in the village of Hazel Green, Wisconsin.
The Freedom Flea Market and Craft Fair is a must-do Fall activity with over fifty-five vendors spanning 100 booths; it's sure to be a great time!
The event is sponsored by the town's two sizeable and fun antique anchor stores, True Vine Antiques and Hard Scrabble Antiques - both open and fun to explore. Read about True Vine in a previous feature article.
In addition, the community Main Street fair is also a fundraiser with a portion of booth proceeds to benefit the local food pantry and Veterans Memorial Park.
It's a flea market and craft shopper's discovery zone with antiques, memorabilia, vintage wares, collectibles, furniture, and more. Whether its clothes, vinyl records, or kitschy yet usable household items one seeks, treasure hunters will have plenty to pick from over the three-day event.
Main Street will be blocked off for three fun-filled days:
- Friday from 11 am to sunset
- Saturday, 8 am to 5 pm.
- Sunday, 8 am to 3 pm.
Food and beverages will be made available with food trucks, coffee vendors, and Main Street taverns open for business serving cold beer and tasty bites. A pumpkin patch for the kids is also available to top off the festive fall vibe.
Grab your friends & family because it's time to go antiquing in Hazel Green.
