First Monday Trade Days (Three to Four Minutes Walk From Our Inn!)

From the website: “What started more than a century ago as a flea market has become home to some of the most exciting, cutting-edge home furnishings, antiques and collectibles that can be found anywhere. Over the past 150 years, lots of things have changed in the Original First Monday Park; but the genuine, down-home human relationships between vendors and shoppers are the reason people keep coming back. This is a place where you can slow down, visit and ask questions, talk to collectors and antique dealers and meet the artists and craftsmen who create one-of-a-kind items.”

Van Zandt Country Club

From the website: “Van Zandt Country Club is the place to be if you enjoy golf, wonderful food and recreation for the whole family. The friendly atmosphere of VZCC is located in Canton, Texas, home of the First Monday Market Center (world’s largest outdoor market).

The golf course is an 18 Hole Mini Verde Bermuda greens course. This Par 72 course will challenge any golfer.”
