Every May and October, our home town, Canton, Mississippi is transformed into a maze of booths lining the streets and filling the historic lawn of the Madison County Courthouse. The Canton Flea Market Arts and Crafts Show began in 1965 with local artists showing their work by hanging beautiful paintings along the wrought iron fence that surrounds the courthouse. It has grown significantly over the years and is now a nationally famous event and is the largest outdoor crafts market in the South. The city of Canton halts all operations as up to 1,000 artists and craftsmen flock to the area to show off their creative ware.
If you haven’t ever been, consider a trip to our quaint little town to grab some of the fun.
