The fruit and jam vendor booth might be a familiar sight to those who drive on the Edgefield Highway often, but another cluster of vendors pops up from time to time near Reynolds Ponds Road.
The Marketplace on Reynolds is a mini-flea market offering an assortment of goods.
“It's a little bit of everything,” Richard Tuck, land leaser, said.
The setup has been open for a year and a half, he said.
“We charge $5 for a 15-foot spot,” he said. “Most other flea markets charge $5 or $10 for a 8-foot spot – a table.”
On days when no one is there, people can set up their section for no charge.
Tuck has been in the sales business for 20 years, going to places like Augusta, Johnson, Springfield and Greenwood.
He has been leasing the land for about a year.
Josh Garvin and Celeste Connelly are just two of the many people who have visited the site.
On a bright Saturday afternoon, Connelly came out with her mom and knows the owners.
Garvin and Connelly were scanning around the books, pictures and furniture.
Vendors have come out to sell plants, clothes, shoes, movies and toys.
Those interested can simply come to the site and set up.
The market will be open this weekend.
