After months of no activity at the Onion Shed due to COVID-19, one regular event will be returning to downtown Farmersville.
Farmer & Fleas, the popular outdoor monthly market, will return July 4 in its regular space with lots of vendors to serve customers. For anyone looking to sell merchandise, there are still booth spaces available under the Onion Shed. City administrator Audrey Rubadue is handling payment and booking vendor spaces, so call 972-782-6151 to book your space now. The cost to rent a space with electricity is $25 and $15 without. In addition, spaces are available for $10 on the concrete space near the Onion Shed.
Rubadue says right now, they have vendors selling clothing and accessories, discounted personal care items, crafts, baked goods, fruits, veggies and plants.
“It’s a good variety,” she said.
The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Representatives of the Main Street Program say social distancing guidelines will be in order. Vendors and attendees are encouraged, but not required, to wear masks.
