The Mower's of Maple Lane

The Mower fleamarket is held each Saturday May- November on a two acre grassy field in the center of Woodstock. It is were John and his family grew up. In 2007 we celebrated the ownership of the property- for 100 years. The history of the flea market and the Mower family is written about in the new book, American Tapestry, the Mowers of Maple Lane by
Janine Fallon Mower. Contact her at to obtain a copy.
