New indoor flea market preps for relaunch

Rodmill Indoor Flea Market

The Rodmill Indoor Flea Market is the market “under the water tower.”

A new indoor flea market in upstate New York is set for a spring re-opening that promises to be even more successful than its brief start at the end of last year. The Rodmill Indoor Market is located, as the market Web site says, “under the water tower” in Rome, N.Y. It launched in the fall in a former warehouse for a company called Echo Beach Industries.

“We opened up in October, and that went great, wonderful,” says vendor manager Ann Brown. “We had approximately 75 vendors.” After going on hiatus for the winter, the market is set to reopen in early March. The venue has undergone some construction and improvements over the winter break that should serve to make the market even more attractive to shoppers and vendors, according to Brown.

The former warehouse in Rome, N.Y., can host 200 vendors.

The market has room for 200 vendors, and is charging $20 per day for an 8′x8′ space, $25 for a 12′x12′ space, with discounts for longer term vendors. Non-profit groups can set up tables at no charge. Before the market went on hiatus, the vendors were selling Amish products, scented candles, homemade jewelry, massage services, and food, according to a report in the Observer-Dispatch.

For more information, call the market at (315) 336-3111. Vendor info for the Rodmill Indoor Market is also online.
