A new season, a new adventure! We are very excited for the upcoming year at The Exchange. This year we have an even wider variety of vendors coming to showcase their small business as well as live music, food trucks, and raffles to benefit local nonprofits here in New Hampshire.

Our first market is Saturday, June 11, from 9 AM to 2 PM. Can’t make it? Don’t worry, we will also be open on Saturday, July 23, and Saturday, September 24, from 9 AM to 2 PM, as well. Admission is only $2 and helps offset the many costs of operating such an event and keeps vendors’ costs low. We also allow local nonprofits some space for free. The location is 216 Cilleyville Road in Andover.

As The Exchange continues to grow, we still hold true to the same core values and mission since our start: Help small, local businesses and give them a venue to showcase their talent, feature sustainable businesses, and give back to the community all while helping to grow our local economy.

Part of our mission is to help small businesses around us grow into whatever size dream they have. Some wish to continue with pop-up markets while others dream of getting the keys to their very own shop. 

During just our first year we have helped many of our vendors find space in retail shops. One of our vendors from last year even opened their very own brick and mortar retail store! 

Whether The Exchange had a hand in any of these successes or not, we are extremely proud. It is bittersweet as we watch our vendors grow because they are so busy now they can no longer attend our market, but they are living their dream. These types of achievements fill our hearts.

Are you interested in becoming a vendor? Maybe you have your own small business or you’re in need of a venue to show the world what you do – The Exchange may just be the right place for you. We are a vintage and farm inspired market with handmade items, vintage finds, reimagined creations, incredible food (baked goods and food trucks) as well as local live music. We’re not a craft fair and we’re not a flea market, we’re something very unique indeed.

Be sure to take some time to visit us this year. We’re only hosting three markets in 2022: Saturdays, June 11, July 23, and September 24. 

Finally, thank you to the fans, vendors, and local businesses who have continued to support us by sharing our social media posts, allowing us to post flyers in their place of business, and for donating items to our raffles. We feel the local love.
