The Market will be held on the second and fourth Saturdays May through October of each month in the fields west of the Merc from 7 AM to 2 PM.

The fee for a space is still just $10, and we offer optional tents for $15 and tables for $10 each. Vendor fees support the library. If you have questions, contact Ellen McMahon at 505-404-8657 or email

If you have gently-used items to donate for the library’s sales table – costume jewelry, housewares, accessories – they can be dropped off at the library.  Please, no clothing or large pieces of furniture.  Sorry, but sales of foods or drink are not permitted.  Firearms are also prohibited.

The location is the Homestead Village Shopping Center field west of the Merc, 221 Hwy 165, Placitas.

Want to help? We need volunteers to help with the set up of the flea market area, putting up and taking down signs, and the library’s sales table. Sign-up sheets for volunteering will be at the library’s Help Desk.
