First Monday started in July 1893 and has taken place every month since; rain or shine, sleet or snow. It started as a day set aside once a month for people to come together and trade their wares with others. It remains that to this day. We like to say you can find anything at First Monday, from antiques to “as seen on TV” products, to a 100 year old cast iron skillet in need of a little love, to designer clothes, pedigree puppies & black & tan hounds, to finger-licking’ barbecue & street Tacos and everything in between. The place has a way about it, a call to yesteryear when things were simpler. When you stop by, you can take a leisurely stroll down the dusty aisles and enjoy the sights and sounds of days gone past, where the streets bustle with activity, people shopping, sharing stories, snacking on a hot dog, finding odd items, comparing prices and, of course, you can always hear some good old fashioned “haggling.”
Currently the market is managed by Jerry & Allison Windham and Keith & Cheryl Thurmond, with our goal to restore First Monday to its fullest potential, we are making changes to the marketing and to the grounds layout. We are committed to evolving our market with renewed interest in the preferences of the customers and to finding new and creative ways to better serve those customers and our Community. First Monday has been around for over a 127 years and I’m sure it will be here 120 more. If you’ve never been to First Monday, come check us out. If you remember coming as a youngster, bring your own youngsters and continue this time honored tradition of buying, selling, and trading. We hope you can join us sometime, either as a vendor or a shopper and experience the fellowship of doing business with friends and neighbors. And don’t leave without a fried pie, a funnel cake, or a Corn Dog!
