Heard Up North: Another flea market opens in Canton

Listen to this story
You may have noticed flea markets, where different vendors can sell all kinds of new and used things under one roof instead of having their own storefront, becoming more and more popular in the North Country.

There are now three flea markets in the Canton and Potsdam area alone. The newest opened yesterday. The village Mayor, Town Supervisor, and vendors were at the grand opening of North Country Neighbors Too.

Tim Connolly and his wife Cathy also own North Country Neighbors in Potsdam. The Connollys rent spaces to people where they can set up their own wares. Vendors are provided with a venue and can sell things without having the burden of running their own store.

What does it take to run a flea market? "It involves keeping different groups of people happy," says Connolly. "Not only do you have your customers, but you've also got the vendors, each with their own special needs."

According to Tim Connolly, flea markets' popularity is increasing in more than just the North Country. "I think it's a national trend, because people's dollars need to go further these days. It's a good way to repurpose stuff."

North Country Neighbors Too is located at 21 Miner Street, Canton, NY 13617 in the old Jubilee Plaza.
