“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” or so the proverb says. In Fargo-Moorhead this summer, you could say “One gal’s junk is another lady’s craft”.
If you’re looking to find that one-of-a-kind piece of junk to complete your living room décor, check out these events and storefronts for this season’s craft fests and junk sales.
Friday, May 20th and Saturday, May 21st is the Junk Market hosted by EcoChic Boutique at the Scheels Arena. It’s bigger and better this year with over 75 vendors! Find your re-purposed furniture, antiques, vintage finds and handmade items from crafters across the region.
Early Bird Tickets | $20 (Ticket sales are closed)
Doors open early Friday morning from 8am-10am to give you the chance to make your purchases without the crowds.
General admission | $5 (Ticket sales are closed)
Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 9am-4pm an expected 4,000 shoppers are sure to find a treasure or two.
If your weekend is booked with carb-loading and recovering from the Fargo Marathon, there’s still hope. There’s always local festivals, the Downtown Street Fair (July 14th-16th), the Island Park Craft Show (August 27th & 28th) or Corks & Canvas Art and Wine Walks as alternative excuses to shop ‘til you drop.
(New Info!) Did you miss the Junk Market? You’re in luck. The Drekker Brewing Company and Unglued Market are teaming up to host the first-ever Late Night Summer Craft Market on Thursday, June 2nd from 5-10pm in the Drekker taproom (630 1st Ave N, Fargo) and the best part… it’s FREE! Must be 21+ to attend this event showcasing 20 curated makers and their work that will be sure to spill out into the back alley with Blackbird Woodfire Pizza and Unglued hosting free craft projects for attendees.
Visit some or all of these unique shops any time this summer for gifts, handmade and uniquely local items.

One last proverb: May the hands of time bring you delightful junk!
