Ripley's First Monday Trade Days and FleaMarket is here to provide a safe, family oriented, inexpensive venue for craftsmen, artist, farmers, ranchers and all walks of life to gather once a month for the opportunity to present their goods and services to the Public. It's our mission to do this, along with making every effort to provide the general public an enjoyable and memorable shopping experience that is unique to Ripley and the entire Mid-South area. Ripley and Tippah County is a very friendly and welcoming place, having hosted the Trade Days for over a 123 years. During that time, crowds of up to 70,000 people, over a single weekend show, have descended on the Ripley Trade Grounds just South of the city limits to explore the wonderfully diverse array of goods, services, and livestock on display. Over the last few years, an estimated annual average of 100,000 shoppers visit and explore the over 600 vendors seeking that opportunity to sell and trade their goods.
Therefore, just like in July of 1893, you are requested to be on hand and bring your friends and neighbors to help make the first Monday weekend of each month a successful grand bargain day for all.
