Maple Lane, what a great place to raise a family

" 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.

The changing landscape of Maple lane

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

C 1979-celebrating our vendors

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.

January 2013

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.

A family of helpers

Our mom's, Winnie and Annie, played a huge part in helping us run the fleamarket in the early years.
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!

Allan and Alexa

Allan and Alexa contribute to the management of Mower's fleamarket by adding in their talents of marketing and advertizing. We've got some great plans for 2013

Fleamarket managers in training

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
