Mondays are becoming more active on Ludlow Avenue, and this Monday, September 28, should be the biggest yet. The Clifton Plaza “Flea for All” will have at least three vendors from 4pm until they decide to go home. One of them, Niemeyer Farm, has been setting up for the last few weeks, and it always draws a crowd, as you can see from the photo at the top of this blog entry. On Monday mornings Julie Benthaus always posts what she’s bringing to Clifton on nextdoor.clifton, as in last week’s post: “It’s a PERFECT market day! Visit Niemeyer Farm for apples, tomatoes, plums, basil + rosemary plants, honey and peppers!” New to Clifton Plaza is Stu “VintageKing” Nizny, whose Pixel 19 has been selling vintage and retro clothes, t-shirts, artwork, jewelry, and furniture for decades. There will also be a vendor selling record albums for a very soft price. We encourage other vendors to set up as well this Monday or any Monday. It doesn’t cost anything to do so, and you don’t have to get a permit or anything like that – just show up and sell!
Also, hang around some, as Ludlow Avenue stores and restaurants are either continuing to run or adding Monday night specials.
- Los Potrillos offers half-price small margaritas;
- The Esquire Theatre continues to promote “Boomer Mondays”;
- Habaneros sells burritos for $5 and Tecate beer for $2;
- Arlin’s charges $2.50 for 23-ounce Yuenglings, Budweisers, or Bud Lights.
Be aware, too, that the vendors and specials will continue for many Mondays to come. As Julie Benthaus put it, Niemeyer Farm plans to keep selling “until it starts snowing.” So come out and buy or sell or just see what’s going on the Plaza!
