Choctaw County Flea Market planned

The Choctaw County Flea Market began in 2012 as part of the MSU Extension’s Turning the Tide on Poverty project. The flea market, which is held every Spring and Fall, offers families a venue where they can sell arts, crafts, yard sale items, plants, home-grown produce and more. “The flea market is continuing to grow. People are able to sell a variety of items from handmade crafts to yard sale items to help raise money for their family. We are expecting around 25 vendors on October 1. We do not charge a vendor fee,” stated Juli Hughes, Extension County Coordinator in Choctaw County.

Vendors will be selling hand-crafted furniture, cookbooks, jewelry, clothing, household items, cosmetics, Rada cutlery, plants, candles, monogrammed towels, and much more. Vendors selling homemade foods including jams, jellies, baked goods, breads, etc., need to have them properly labeled according to State Department of Health guidelines. Guidelines are available online at http://www.msdh.state.ms.us/msdhsite/_static/resources/5375.pdf    or at MSU Extension – Choctaw County office in the Courthouse Annex in Ackerman.

Flea Market will be open 8:00am – 1:00pm in the Main Street parking lot in Ackerman.
