From a press release:
The organizer of the hugely successful Fenton Street Market, in conjunction with the Old Takoma Business Association, will be bringing a new market to historic Takoma Park, MD in Spring 2013. The new Grant Avenue Market will showcase antiques, collectibles and other funky finds and will take place on one block of Grant Avenue in the Takoma Junction neighborhood in Takoma Park. Market goers can expect to find the same winning format as the Fenton Street Market – vendor booths, music and food – adding yet another activity to the busy Sunday line-up in Old Takoma which already offers the popular Takoma Park Farmers Market from 10am-2pm.
Continues after the jump.
The market will take place on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 10am-3pm on May 12th, June 9th and July 14th and will feature antiques including furniture and household items, vintage items such as clothing, collectibles, jewelry, records, books, artwork and ephemera plus repurposed items like clothing, jewelry, artwork. The Grant Avenue Market is excited to announce the participation of Washington, DC area favorite, Ruff & Ready Furnishings which will be bringing their unique mix of antiques, collectibles and “neat junque” each Sunday.
“We think Takoma Park is the perfect venue for this new market since there is not anything like it nearby.” says Fenton Street Market co-owner and manager Megan Moriarty. “Sundays in Takoma Park are busy and fun already – we look forward to using our expertise to add to the energy and the options already available.”
