Bushy Run Market

April – September 2019 (4th Saturday of every month!)

8:00 a.m. – noon

Cost: FREE for both visitors and vendors!

Join us for Bushy Run Battlefield’s newest event, the Bushy Run Market! Beginning  Saturday, April 27, the Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society, Inc. (BRBHS) will host an open air market the fourth Saturday of every month during the 2019 season. A variety of vendors of all sorts of wares will be featured, and our concession stand will be open for drinks and light fare!

For Prospective Vendors:

On each Bushy Run Market day, the battlefield gate will open at 6 a.m. for vendors to set up in their 10′ designated space along ‘Memory Lane’.  There will be no set up after 7:30 a.m.  Vehicles will be allowed only to ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ during set up and closing time, depending on weather and ground conditions. Vendors are responsible for all tables, tents, and other equipment. No electricity will be provided. There is no fee for requesting a space, but vendors will be asked to donate 15% of their day’s sales to the society. Those who agree to a higher donation level will be recognized by a sign on their table listing their increased giving level. Vendor space requests will be on a FIRST COME BASIS! Products NOT acceptable at the market include: live animals, firearms (or ammunition, explosives, etc.), third party sales, or contract sales (products must change hands on the day of the market).

Contact for all space requests and other questions. NO reservations are to be made through the society or museum operations.
