FLEMINGTON, N.J. – The first Flemington Flea, a new monthly event for people who enjoy browsing for antiques, collectibles and special finds, has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 17, after being rained out last Sunday.

The kickoff event, running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will cover three locations on Main Street and is now aimed at giving fathers something different to do on Father’s Day, with free chocolate chip cookies for dads, live music and many places to stop for a meal with their families. 

“We were disappointed it rained last weekend, but the weather is supposed to be great on Sunday,” said Ann Meredith, executive director of Flemington Community Partnership, which is sponsoring the event. “We hope anyone who was planning to go before will stop by on Sunday – and bring their entire families, because there will be a lot going on.”

Antique and flea market dealers from around the region will display their wares throughout the borough while musicians serenade visitors and local stores conduct sidewalk sales. A variety of restaurants will be open all day for anyone who wants to have a special meal on Father’s Day.

Flemington Flea is designed to add another layer of adventure to the community. With six antique shops and auction houses, as well as a monthly flea market at Forge Marketplace, Flemington is already becoming known as a center for antiques and collectibles, but this may be the first time an entire town is the backdrop for professional vendors from the flea market circuit, along with local sidewalk sales and live musicians.

Flemington Flea will be repeated on the second Sunday of each month through early fall, on July 8, August 12, September 9 and October 14, with rain dates the following Sundays.

The vendor locations are Teaberry’s Tea Room, 2 Main St.; Camp Flemington Antiques, 78 Main St.; and Flemington Filling Station, Main and William streets.
