CARYVILLE — Chair Henry Chambers informed the Caryville Town Council during their March 11 meeting that soon there would be two additional booths built at the Caryville Flea Market.

During the previous meeting it was approved, however delays prevented it from being built that month.

Chambers had voiced at the previous meeting that he hoped the expansion of the flea market indicated a growth of the town, as the influx of visitors and vendors to the flea market seems to have been growing over the last few years.

Supervisor of Caryville Flea Market Paron Beeco informed the Council that there were 30 days left until the next Flea Across Florida.

“We’ve got Kountry Carter doing a free concert on April 25 and hot dog fundraisers all throughout March,” said Beeco. “The Governor of Florida thanked us for inviting him to the Flea Across Florida but sadly he will not be able to attend this year.”

He said that on March 1, 8, 15 and 29 the flea market would be selling hot dog plates for $3 and on March 22 there would be pulled pork on a bun plates sold for $6 per plate, with all hot dog plates including chips and a soft drink and pulled pork plates including baked beans, coleslaw, chips and a soft drink. Proceeds from the fundraisers go to purchasing entertainment for the weekend of Flea Across Florida.

Chambers informed the council that the town would be looking into replacing a broken light at the Caryville Ball Field and would inspect the surrounding light poles for potential damage due to age and rot. He said he would present his findings to the council at the next meeting.
