Flea market to promote Uruma City revitalization

Date Posted: 2009-04-10

Uruma City’s adding a new twist to the traditional flea market, gearing up for an American Town Market that includes not only the dozens of vendor booths, but live entertainment to keep the excitement alive throughout the afternoon and early evening. A variety of musical genre is expected, and the III Marine Expeditionary Force Band will perform.

The American Town Market will be held Saturday, April 18th, at Agenagea Market, near Agena Intersection close to Camps Courtney and McTureous. The flea market will run 1 ~ 4 p.m. The 70 individual booths are ¥500 each, with free booths being offered to schools, PTO’s, Boy & Girl Scout projects, and Okinawan college students.

There’s to be plenty of furniture, toys, used clothing and electronic goods for sale. Organizers are warning potential vendors, though, that tax-exempt items such as alcohol, cigarettes and leather items, including brand-new bicycles, Nike shoes, Coach and Louis Vuitton handbags, are not permitted. Vendors planning to sell food items are asked to contact ichariba@festa.ocn.ne.jp for information on health rules. All vendors are expected to be American families and Okinawan college students.

Musical entertainment will take place at the April 18th American Town Market from 3 ~ 7 p.m. Organizers say an inclement weather plan is to hold the event Sunday, April 19th, if it rains on Saturday. To reach the Agenagea market, drive south on Highway 75 from Camp Courtney, passing Agena intersection between Highways 75 and 8. Look for the Urumin Welfare Center building on the left at the first traffic light. After the welfare center, look for Okinawa Bank and a group of small shops. The Market site is on the right.
