Third Monday Trade Days, McKinney’s ‘oldest business,’ is closing after 135 years

It’s the end of the road for Third Monday Trade Days, the iconic McKinney flea market that’s said to be the city’s oldest operating business.

Operators announced last month on Facebook the flea market would shutter.

This weekend, from Dec. 17-19, is the final hurrah for the market, which sits on historic ground, according to NBC 5 (KXAS-TV).

The 18-acre location is where the Kiowa tribe once lived, owner Darrell Lewis told the station, and where the tribe’s chief is buried.

“This was the first county seat of Collin County,” Lewis told the station.

The market started in 1886, and in the 1960s, moved to its current location along Highway 380, west of Interstate 75.

Lewis bought the business with wife Karen in 1995, according to the station.

But because it’s open for only one weekend per month, the owners felt the location — and city — deserved a tenant that made more use of the land.

“While the market property has not been sold, the property’s pivotal location would be more productively used and beneficial to the community as a whole and the city if used by businesses open daily rather than used by a business that is open only 3 days a month,” the announcement about the market closing read on Facebook.

“We are thankful for all the vendors and shoppers who have maintained this market over many years.”
