What to Expect as a Vendor:
The hippie hootenanny is an outdoor pop-up market held at Wild Raven's Nest at Old Mill Marketplace in Canton, TX.
Old Mill Marketplace was once a unique and thriving place to visit and spend time with family. Over time, it has experienced loss due to fires, and a slowing crowd believing it was gone forever. Many people remember it's glory days and the potential lives on. The Hippie Hootenanny is a grassroots movement to revive and reclaim this amazing marketplace for artisans, creators, and makers.
Along the way we are building a strong community of small business that are there to support each other. Wild Raven's nest is a space that lives and breathes community and hosts many small businesses both in the workshop space and in the retail space. We want you to be a part of our vision!
The event takes place during First Monday Trade Days, the largest flea market in the world. Old Mill Marketplace is a part of First Monday's and is not on the main grounds. The event takes place in front of Wild Raven's Nest and the Village.
