Vendors are back in business at The Market of Marion in Florida after a recent fire that broke out, destroying the South C aisle. The market was closed for a couple of days, but quickly reopened on September 14th. The flea has a designated path for both shoppers and vendors to use to avoid the debris, but are working to get it completely cleaned up.
The building that was destroyed housed 10 vendors including a large estate sale, a shop selling birds and bird cages, a bookstore and a kitchen gadget shop. The vendors lost some of their inventory, but are ready to get back in business and selling their products.
The owner of the flea market, Adam Shaddix, said that the next step is to help all the vendors who were affected. The Marion Flea Market will help the vendors with their rent if they want to relocate and help in any other way they can. The cause of the fire is still unknown and will cost thousands of dollars to rebuild, but the good thing is that they’re back in business and vendors are back to selling their products.
