This event is a fundraiser benefiting the historic and educational programs presented at the Historic Village at Allaire by the non-profit organization, Allaire Village Incorporated. Patrons of the Flea Market will wish to visit the restored 1830’s iron-manufacturing community known as the Howell Iron Works. There will be no admission charge to the Village for Flea Market attendees. A perfect day of fun for the yard sale, history, and nature enthusiast in the family! Authentically-clad museum interpreters, artisans, and craft demonstrators, such as blacksmiths and carpenters, present the story of the historic buildings and the people who lived and worked there over 175 years ago.
