ANDERSONVILLE — Some of the area’s biggest resale shops will take to the street for three Sundays this summer as part of the first Andersonville Vintage Market.
The Andersonville Vintage Market will run 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday on Catalpa Avenue between Clark Street and Ashland Avenue. The fest will return July 25 and Aug. 22.
The market will see at least 15 local shops selling antiques, home decor, clothing, art, music and other goods in booths along Catalpa. Local shops participating include Scout, Andersonville Antiques, Edgewater Antique Mall, Mercantile M and Andy’s Art, Antiques & Oddities.
Food vendors will include Happy Lobster Truck and Downstate Donuts. For a full list of participating businesses, click here.
The Andersonville Vintage Market is the first special event since the pandemic for many participating businesses.
“The market is the first local event for Andersonville’s vintage retailers in over a year, and it’s so important, not only in showcasing local merchants, but also bringing the neighborhood together,” Mercantile M owner Mark McKee said in a statement.
A $5 suggested donation at the gate will help fund other special events put on by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, the business group said.
