offered bedding plants, flowering baskets and a variety of vegetable plants from Fitch Farm at Ringgold Flea Market on Sunday. Overcast skies and drizzling rain didn’t keep umbrella-toting bargain-hunters from filling up the parking lots, and aisles, at Ringgold Flea Market on Sunday. There were a lot of booths full of vegetable plants, bedding flowers, flowering baskets and produce as well as the usual mix of used household items, clothing, furniture and handicrafts. Al Fitch, Susan Fitch and Al Fitch Jr. had vegetable and bedding plants, as well as hanging baskets, from Fitch Farm, in Ringgold. Produce will be added as it is harvested. They have been coming to the Ringgold Flea Market for eight years, Al Fitch Jr. said. Though the flea market is open year-round, they only come from the beginning of April through the end of October, he said. The economy has not affected turnout at their booth — and even may be improving it, Al Fitch Jr. said.
“When things get tough, people go back to the old ways and plant gardens,” he noted.
