Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market, aka The FARM, announces its annual summer flea market - with live music this year!
Held the third weekend in June, the annual summer event brings numerous buyers to the antique mall’s parking lot which is full of vendors selling their antiques, collectible toys, vintage vinyl, mid-century furnishings, rustic garden items, repurposed furnishings, and other vintage wares.
Along with the booths outside, all the vendors inside the antique mall will be having sales as well. The Holiday Hayloft and Tool Shed have been restocked with fresh items - which will also be on sale.
In addition to the antique picking, there will be live music at this year’s June flea market.
The Bluegrass Association of North Dakota (B.A.N.D.), a local nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of bluegrass music in North Dakota, will be in attendance both days of the flea market. B.A.N.D. will be performing live jam sessions on Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm until 5 pm.
Kristi Bixby, owner of the antique mall, says, “The FARM values being an active member of the Fargo-Moorhead community. And naturally, as an antique mall, we are all about preserving history, which B.A.N.D. is doing. Besides, after the year we've all had, who doesn't want to hoot and holler - maybe even dance a little?”
The FARM’s Annual Summer Flea Market runs Saturday, June 19th, from 10 am until 6 pm, and Sunday, June 20th, from noon until 6 pm. It is free and open to the public.
See you at The FARM!

Things are a little different this year - but we are still going to have our annual holiday event at Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market!

Worried about social distancing for this event? The flea market will be held outside in the parking lot and the antique mall itself is large, making social distancing relatively easy. We also have hand sanitizer at the door and a washroom about halfway through the antique mall too. Masks are recommended, but not required.
Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market is proud to announce that local educator and author Amelia Lemar will be signing copies of her first book, It's Okay: The 8 Things All Children Need to Hear, this weekend at our Annual Flea Market!
Lemar, who teaches fifth-grade in Fergus Falls, has just published her first book, It's Okay: The 8 Things All Children Need to Hear.
It's Okay seeks to address the gaps in mental health education, inspiring and guiding caregivers with tools to better help children build confidence, self-respect, and motivation, leading to greater achievement, success, and happiness in adulthood. The book is not just for teachers, childcare providers, social workers -- it's for parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, and anyone who has or works with children!
Released in late May of this year, Lemar's book has - in just a few weeks - already ranked number one in its category on Amazon!
Attendees of this free event can also hear from the author about her future book plans, which include a series of children's books involving her dog, Maverick, as the main character.
Amelia Lemar will be signing copies of her book inside The FARM on Saturday, June 20th, from 10 am until 2 pm and Sunday, June 21st, from noon until 2 pm. Limited copies of the book will also be available.
You can follow the author on Facebook here.

Worried about the Corona virus? As our FARM friends know, the antique mall is large & social distancing is relatively easy (and we have hand sanitizer at the door, a washroom about halfway through too). Masks are recommended, but not required.
Since Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market first opened its doors in October of 2015, we've carried Cottage Paint. Many of you know & love Cottage Paint - as you should! But we thought it was time to tell you more about what Cottage Paint is and why it is so great to work with.
Cottage Paint is both a chalk paint and a clay paint. It is made with both clay and chalk components, providing a flat, matte, chalky, velvety-aged, time-worn finish that so many love.
And there are practical reasons to love this furniture paint too.
Simply put, Cottage Paint takes all the best qualities of milk paint, chalk paint, and clay paint - combining them into an inexpensive and easy to use, no fuss medium for renewing and restoring your furniture, cupboards, frames, and other creative DIY decor projects.
Whether your decorator look is shabby chic, country, cottage, rustic, farmhouse, bohemian - or you're simply a fan of vintage and antique looks, and you want more of that worn, weathered, homespun, casual feel of lived-in charm, Cottage Paint is the key. And an easy to use key at that!
The FARM is proud to be one of the very few places in the region to carry a complete range of Cottage Paints - from furniture paints and supporting decorative finishes, to other DIY furniture paint essentials. And we now carry Cottage Paints in our online shop - you can purchase online & pick it up in the store or make curb-side arrangements!
Posted below is our complete Cottage Paint color chart - if we do not have a color in stock, contact us to order it!
As you may have heard on our Facebook Page, Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market will be reopening on May 1st!
Our current hours will be: Monday thru Saturday, 10 am til 6 pm and Sunday, from noon til 6 pm.
The past few weeks we have all been busy at The FARM, cleaning, revamping, restocking - but we certainly have missed you! Feel free to come in and see all the changes - and meet the newest vendors too!
As we've noted before, we've always had an automatic Purell dispenser at the entry and hand washing availability - since day one. In our large shop, there's plenty of room to move around and still practice social distancing. (However, we will still reserve the right to limit the number of folks in the shop at one time, in order to keep the shop safest for everyone.) And we continue to clean and disinfect common areas for everyone's safety.
We hope to see you soon at The FARM!
If you feel unable to come into the shop, we understand - and are presently adding items to our online store for in-store & curb-side pickup!
With heavy hearts and an assortment of other feelings, The FARM announces that we are temporarily closing our store to the general public through April 6th. Like so many other businesses, we have to do what is best for our friends, our vendors, and our community.
For those of you who do feel up to going out & about, we currently remain open by appointment. Call the store at 701.356.9199.
We sincerely thank all of you for your concern for our small business and the numerous self-employed vendors that make Fargo Antiques & Repurposed Market the great place that it is. We are doing everything we can to stay strong and be here, be an active part of our community, for years to come.
To stay informed, and remain in contact, be sure to watch our website & social media.
Meanwhile, we can always “see” each other in our new Farm Friends Facebook group!
