Local Flea Market moves outdoors to make room for FEMA

Posted: Updated:

In the days following Hurricane Harvey's landfall in the Coastal Bend, crews with FEMA have been a constant presence in the area, and that includes a local flea market.

The Flea Market on Agnes street would normally be hosting local vendors on the weekends, but in the wake of Harvey, FEMA has been using the building space for part of their recovery efforts.

FEMA's presence hasn't stopped local merchants from gathering for their regular market activities, however. They've instead moved over to Moon Plaza on Ayers Street.

That plaza is typically an indoor-only market but has opened up to the community, allowing vendors to set up shop in the parking lot to accommodate local merchants from Corpus Christi and the surrounding areas.

The market is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
