image of flea across floridaThe Flea Across Florida lives up to its name, crossing from Live Oak, FL to Pensacola, FL and covering 272 miles. Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Monticello and Jefferson County, with special thanks to the First Baptist Church of Monticello, the flea market attracts crowds from all over the state during its three-day run. Last year’s event was a great success, and this year is expected to be no different. “The buyers were frequent and made interesting selections,” noted vendor Terra Carni of MarketSCENE, LLC in New Hampshire, following last year’s event. “Shoppers travelled the route as far as they could and many stopped by. I’d very much like to participate in this flea market next year, and will encourage others to, as well.”

The town of Monticello has seven areas dedicated to selling space to vendors, located along Highway 90, where vendors pay $35 to have a 12-foot by 12-foot space for three days. Alternatively, the Chamber of Commerce’s website features a shopping cart so that vendors can purchase spaces online, as well. Vendors have an option to be featured in a listing on the official flea market map, for a fee of $10, or to purchase a small add for $25 in order to boost visibility.

The Flea Across Florida takes place on September 14 through 16, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., featuring both new merchandise and typical flea market fare. Vendors will have the opportunity to move into their booths on Thursday, September 13, following a check-in after 5 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce, located at 420 West Washington Street in Monticello. The event is taking place rain or shine, and vendors are to be aware that electricity is not available. More information is available at www.monticellojeffersonfl.com, or by calling Melanie Mays at 850-997-5552.
