The Boissevain Fairgrounds will be bustling with activity Sunday, September 4th with vendors and patrons taking part in the annual Dunrea Flea Market.

The pandemic has had an impact on the past two markets with the 2020 market canceled and last year’s event drawing fewer vendors and patrons.

The Dunrea Flea Market is hosted by the Kinette and Kinsmen Clubs of Boissevain. Brandt Bessant is a member and part of the organizing committee and he wants people to know this year’s market will return and be bigger and better than ever.

“We’re planning for the first Sunday in September. Like other clubs we’re constantly trying to raise money for the community. This is a community project and we do all this for free and we turn the money back into worthy causes around us. So if we can get more patrons and people to attend it turns into more money for those who can benefit to move the community forward.”

Prior to the pandemic the flea market would attract over 100 vendors and about 2,000 people. “We’re trying to get back to that number and last year we were slightly down because of people being cautious with covid restriction and we understand and respect that. Now that we’re moving through this we hope to see more happy faces” said Brandt Bessant.

Organizers are cautiously optimistic with this September’s market.
