Vendor & Flea Market in Downtown New Bern. I have rented out the Farmer’s Market in Downtown New Bern, to hold a monthly Vendor & Flea Market. I moved here 3 years ago. I was thinking New Bern, needs a market where anyone can sell what they want. After trying to get into the Farmer’s Market for over a year, I decided why not rent it out and sell spots to people to use as they wish. (Please note I am not associated with the Farmer’s Market, so please do not call them.) The Bear Town Exchange (at the Farmer’s Market) will be the 1st Sunday of every month (except Holidays – so, no Bear Town Exchange in January). For information please go to BearTownExchange.com or call Lisa at (315) 430-7951.
