Vending fees are as follows: $15 reserves a vending area, but you must provide your own table. $20 includes table rental. Proceeds from vendor registration will go toward 4-H programs.

“The 4-H Flea Market is a great opportunity for collectors and bargain hunters, but most of all, it allows vendors to give to a worthy cause,” said Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “Please consider bringing your treasures to help our 4-H program.”

“The 4-H program of Middlesex County allows students to learn life skills and develop their natural talents,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee. “I urge shoppers and vendors to attend this event: you may find that special item you’ve been looking for, and you’ll definitely find that 4-H will appreciate your help.”

For information on becoming a 4-H member or volunteer, call 732-398-5261.

4-H programs are open to all youth, grades 4-13, regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.
