Help us grow on Social Media!
The success of this event is based on patron turnout. We are lucky enough to be situated in a well-traveled thoroughfare, with an entrance to the Market easily accessible off of Route 30. We will be investing considerable resources into advertising through print and radio and other local news outlets such as Front Porch Forum, Brattleboro Chamber of Commerce, etc. We will also have rack cards placed in rest areas and welcome centers along local boarders and in local Inns, B&B’s and other high traffic areas. In this day and age, a huge resource for free advertising is through the use of social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. We ask that all vendors who are able participate in our advertising campaign through posting Market-related content on Instagram and tagging the Market: @newfaneflea. This helps us grow our reach and expand our web of potential patrons. We appreciate your participation!
