Due to increased demand for more shopping time and fresh local produce, the Ramona Flea Market announced today that it is adding a third full day to its operations schedule. Beginning Wednesday, August 8, the Ramona Flea Market will be open every Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the Wednesday market is free for the month of August and just fifty cents starting in September.
Any vendor interested in participating in the new Wednesday market will receive a rent-free space during the month of August.
The Ramona Flea Market was acquired in February by United Flea Markets, owners of the largest portfolio of flea markets in the industry. Since that time, the market has seen numerous capital improvements including a newly-constructed Farmers Market area where local farmers and growers gather to offer an abundance of fresh and seasonal produce. Other market upgrades, designed specifically to enhance visitors’ overall experience include:
· Ground improvements
· Upgraded Wi-Fi for sellers
· New rides and activities for children
· New food stands such as the Chuck Wagon, which serves fresh and never frozen beef patty hamburgers, and Pacos Tacos, purveyors of authentic Mexican cuisine including street tacos.
Rob Sieban, President, CEO and Co-Owner of United Flea Markets and former Chairman and President of the National Flea Market Association, said the decision to add a third market day was in response to demand from the Jacksonville community. “Our team was hearing from guests that they desired an additional day of shopping and socializing,” Sieban said. “Based on our research, it was clear that there were limited flea market options in the Jacksonville area mid-week. We’re thrilled to fill that void, now offering our farmer’s market, suite of vendors and variety of food options three days a week.”
The Ramona Flea Market is located at 7059 Ramona Blvd. in Jacksonville, FL. Hours of operation are Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please visit https:/www.ramonaflea.com
