A new market is in the area and open as of Feb. 9. The Manchester Market is located at the Garey Business Center in Manchester.
Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. The market, according to Missy Emig, market coordinator, who said in an email, “is an indoor retail space that has been made available for people to rent a space and sell their wares.”
Any type of merchandise, “as long as it’s not illegal or indecent,” may be sold according to Emig.
“The idea behind it is a little like an antique mall where you can rent the space but don’t have to necessarily be there all the time,” Emig said, “The vendors will take turns covering the hours that were open. If you want to be there the entire time great but not necessary. We want a good variety of vendors/items available.”
The cost to rent a space is $40 for the entire weekend and the vendors are welcome to stay on for future weekends. There is currently a waiting list for people who wish to rent a space.
As of now, some of the vendors include flea market items, farmer market items, and direct sale vendors.
The business center is located at 3321 Main St., Unit A4, Manchester. For information, or to rent a space, call 410-419-8950.
