I'm not associated with the farmer's market at all... but speaking from the experience of planning events and managing a bookstore, it takes quite a bit of money to run something like this. I like to be thrifty, and I would be cautious about spending money on an entrance fee, it might be better to raise the price for vendors instead. But even still, I can see the reasoning behind it. I don't necessarily think the idea is fueled by greed. The economy is bad for everyone! Even companies that are hosting flea markets. Did you see all the renovations they did? Extending the parking lot, adding a security system and fire alarms? That stuff doesn't happen for free. $2 for adults, and kids under 12 are free. I don't think that's unreasonable. Think of the money you save on gas by not driving all over the place to go to garage sales - this way everything is one spot! I think you all should give it a try before you dis it. Just my 2 cents! : )

Its absolutely ridiculous to be reacting this way, especially when you are all misinformed. If you read the article that was posted before jumping to conclusions, it plainly states that its only $2 per person and 12 & under get in free. That is not even close to outrageous to me. And if you have not even gone, then how exactly do you know that the items they are selling and raffling are cheap? People who assume make an ass of themselves. That's exactly what's happened here. I can't wait to go and then I will post my review on the place. I don't mind dropping a small amount of cash to walk around somewhere new and exciting with my kiddos!

Ashley, I did read the article before I posted. I said I will not pay to shop. What everyone else does is their business. I hope it works out for the owners. Since it has been open awhile how come you haven't been yet?

Ashley Leonard name any Saint Charles County store that you pay to get in to shop, and do not list TENT CITY. You quote " It plainly states that its only $2 per person....." Are you really lacking that badly in "I.Q." or, are you just another dumb democrat ?

This information is incorrect!!!! The I-70 Shoppers Fair Flea Market does NOT charge to shop!!! We were charging $2.00 and giving shoppers a $2.00 credit for shopping with our vendors, and it also included a raffle ticket worth $5.00. It was a promotion during the first week to help our vendors. Please disregard the above information, and please don't listen t gossip, is always hurtful. Thanks for listening! Susie Stewart
