A recent visit to the Sunday Farmers’ Market at the Marin County Civic Center, took us to the adjacent outdoor antique market.
The Outdoor market takes place on the second Sunday of the month, April through October.
We enjoyed the interesting vendors who take pride in finding and providing items that they love. It reminded us of Alan’s mother, aka “Deb the Linen Lady,” who had a passion for antique linens. She bought linens, table cloths, etc. at house sales in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, cleaned and ironed them, and sold them on Sunday at the Lambertville Flea Market.
Madeline bought these purses from a vendor who had acquired them from the estate of a collector in Seattle.
You don’t have to wait till next April to attend. There is an indoor version of this market, also at the Marin Civic Center, in the Exhibit Hall:
- December 8, Saturday 10 am -6 pm
- December 9, Sunday 10 am- 5 pm
Outdoor shows have free admission. There is an $8 admission charge for the indoor show.
