There are always special events and great activities taking place at Barkley’s Gourmet Marketplace!
2012 Turkey Trot is returning to Main Street in Flemington
Come and join the several thousand walkers, runners, and revelers (many in costume) who come out in support of a great local non-profit and for a great time.
Please come down to cheer the runners and walkers on as they celebrate the early part of Thanksgiving morning in support of our neighbors and friends at the Center for Educational Advancement and Spring Run School. Barkley’s Gourmet Marketplace will be on the course, providing treats for our four legged runners and spectators.
Here are a few tactical items you should know…
Much of Main Street will be closed to traffic in early/mid morning, as will Court Street between Park Ave and Main Street.
A no-parking area of Main Street will exist from Fulper to the War Memorial on Thanksgiving morning until 10:30 am.
In order to address safety concerns for our visitors the North side of Bonnell Street will also be a no parking area from 8:00-10:30 am on Thanksgiving Day. (DPW signs will be posted on November 21, 2012.)

|Update Regarding The Flemington Street Fair! Unfortunately due to the weather the Flemington BID had to postpone its first ever Street Fair. It will likely be rescheduled because it is sure to be a huge success with over 12,000 people estimated to be coming to the town of Flemington.
When a new date is selected, we will announce it here. You may expect the show will run from 11am – 5pm, with Main Street closing from 7 am to 7 pm in order to accommodate the more than 100 vendors, crafters, and musicians offering a full day of food, entertainment, and fun right in the middle of town.Make sure to take some time and visit all of our businesses while at the Street Fair. Many of the businesses will be staying open on Sunday and having specials and sales.This is truly one of the biggest yearly events planned by the Flemington BID.
*** DRIVING / PARKING ALERT ***
Due to the upcoming Flemington Street Fair, Main Street will be closed to all vehicular traffic. We suggest you consider parking behind 99 Main, the lot behind the Flemington Police Department, or on Broad Street.

The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc or MAGDRL, was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. The organization is a DC corporation and has a charitable tax-exemption under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. and like all humane groups, MAGDRL is in the unique position of helping both humans and pets. In our case, the pets are Great Danes and mixed Dane dogs, and the people are those who have or want the companionship of the breed or, often, just dogs in general. http://magdrl.org/
