What most people don’t realize about First Monday is it has developed into a business not only for the City of Canton, but for several private individuals as well. The original First Monday Trade Days was started in the 1850’s on the streets of downtown Canton and was moved to six acres off the square during the 1960’s. Various individuals have acquired property in the area surrounding the six acres and developed their own “First Monday” sales areas. The following map shows the locations of the different areas:

It is recommended that you contact any market you are interested in by phone and talk to a live person to get a better understanding of each markets terms and conditions. Each market controls their own spaces and rental pricing along with all details and rules of use, etc.
