" Raising her family in her mother- in laws house must have been awkward for Anne at first. Eventually, Esther and Anne began to share the household chores. There was a big, deep white enamel sink in the kitchen, which made it easy to hook up the copper topped automatic wringer washing machine. They would drag the washing machine from the hallway where it was stored and push it into the kitchen. The only draw back, it had to be emptied by and with a pail. It seems as though every clear day was wash day on Maple Lane" American Tapestry, the Mowers of Maple Lane, Janine Fallon Mower 2007, p. 92).
Not just a fleamarket, but a home to many. Anne Mower with her children, John, Barbara, Patty, Kay, Linda and Maureen.
If you plug in 7 Maple lane on google maps, you will be able to find our location. Over the past 36 years, vendors have changed and so has the landscape of Maple lane. Once a family home and farm lot, now a thriving seasonal business can be found at the same location
John loves to browse around the fleamarket. You just never know what you are going to find
Mower's fleamarket in Woodstock would not exist without our loyal vendors. We are truly grateful to our vendors who return each year.

Yes, it is chilly here in Woodstock. Maple lane is getting a much needed rest. We would like to see a little more snow on the field, and perhaps a giant snowman. We'll see after today what the ground hog predicts.
Jason and Colleen evolved from food vendors and makers of the best fresh lemonade at the fleamarket to
the new managers of Wednesday markets at Maple Lane. In July and August, we are open on Wednesdays in conjunction with the Woodstock Farm Festival. If it's Wednesday, your calendar should say WOODSTOCK!
Don't let their age fool you. These guys watch everything John and Janine do at the fleamarket, and someday, they will take over and put their own unique stamp on Woodstock and the fleamarket. They are the 6th generation of Mower's to know and love Woodstock, NY
