HILLSDALE, N.Y.–The Town of Hillsdale’s popular flea market returns on July 3,  the Saturday of Independence Day weekend, offering a broad array of goods ranging from household items and clothing to antiques and collectibles.

The market will take place in Hillsdale Hamlet Park, located just southwest of the traffic light at the intersection of N.Y. Routes 22 and 23. It will open at 8 a.m. for early-bird shoppers, at a donation of $10 a person. Free attendance will begin at 9 a.m. The market will end at 3 p.m.

The market will offer items ranging from kitchenware, toys, garden items and baked goods to handicrafts. Also among the confirmed vendors are sellers of vintage textiles, artwork and furniture.

Pampered Chef products will be on sale as well as classic women’s clothing. Power equipment, kayaks and sports equipment will also be offered, as well as jewelry ranging from vintage to handcrafted and make-it-yourself kits. Other vendors will sell records, pottery, books and ephemera.

 “The flea market has become a community gathering place and a fun way to spend an hour or two on a holiday weekend,” said Gaye Hoffman, a member of the  Hamlet Committee who is overseeing the event. “It’s also a great way for residents to get rid of unneeded things in an ecologically friendly way.”

Proceeds from the flea market space rentals will help fund town improvement projects overseen by the Hamlet Committee, including the redesign and restoration of Hamlet Park.

Applications for vendor spaces are still available by contacting Steven Tiger at stiger@taconic.net or by calling (518) 938-1404. More information about the flea market is available on Facebook at https://tinyurl.com/HillsdaleFlea.

Vendors have two options: a $35 donation for a 15-by-15-foot space, with one parking spot next to the booth, or $20 for a 10-by-10-foot space, with the requirement that vehicles be unloaded and parked in a designated spot. Vendors must supply their own table, small tent or other items. Note that the market is held on grass.

As this is an outdoor event, the rain date for severe weather will be Sunday July 4, at the same time. Notice of a rain delay would be posted on the event’s Facebook page.
