This flea market is part of the rich history of the town of Yardley. In 1955, Yardley Friends Meeting moved to its current location at 65 N. Main St., just down the road from Lake Afton. It had been located farther south on Main Street, where the Sovereign Bank is today.
In 1955, in the new location, the members of the meeting held their first flea market. The ladies of the meeting put on a bake sale and sold their special turkey salad sandwiches, hot dogs, and sausage, peppers and onions. Some of these same foods will be sold this year, along with vegetarian options.
In addition to many vendors, the flea market will include a silent auction, live music, book sale, white elephant table, children’s activities, and food and baked goods for sale. The Habitat for Humanity ReStore truck will be back to collect donations of furniture and housewares from community members.
Recent years saw some slight changes in the flea market, but organizers plan to return to their roots, hopeful that many vendors will join them for a great event with visitors from Yardley and surrounding areas in Bucks and Mercer counties.
