Macon Indoor Flea Market to open next week

The Macon Indoor Flea Market on Eisenhower Parkway will open July 31, manager Sharonda Edwards said last week.

The market originally had planned to open in June, but the opening date was pushed into July. The market is in the former Kroger space in the Parkway Village shopping center and will have more than 250 booths.

Friday, work crews hung a large sign across the market’s storefront while some occupants worked inside fixing up their spaces. The market will feature permanent booth spaces occupied by small businesses that sell new merchandise or provide services, Edwards said.

Some tenants already signed on include a barbershop and clothing, shoes, jewelry, photography, tobacco and tattoo vendors. It also will have a food court and lottery game room, Edwards said.

The market will be open Wednesdays-Sundays.
