After much deliberation and negotiation, we received approval to hold indoor flea markets this winter at the former Tree Paad Fun Center building on Route 9 in Malta. (Actual address is 2381 U.S. Route 9, Mechanicville, NY 12118). This location provides us more than 20,000 sf of sales space, with 25 foot ceilings, a 150+ car parking lot, restrooms and a snack bar. Of course, we're still in the midst of a pandemic, so we will operate with a modified setup and COVID-19 guidelines to maximize social distancing.
Modified Flea Market Guidelines
Maximum of 75 Vendors per show
Vendor spaces to be separated by 6 feet
Maximum of 400 people allowed in building at any time
All customers must wear a face covering
No handling of items for sale. Vendors will pick up items for closer examination.
Try to limit restroom use and wear face covering while in restroom. Restrooms frequently sanitized.
