The City of Canton Welcomes You to First Monday Trade Days

What started more than a century ago as a flea market has become home to some of the most exciting, cutting-edge home furnishings, antiques and collectibles that can be found anywhere. Over the past 150 years, lots of things have changed in the Original First Monday Park; but the genuine, down-home human relationships between vendors and shoppers are the reason people keep coming back. This is a place where you can slow down, visit and ask questions, talk to collectors and antique dealers and meet the artists and craftsmen who create one-of-a-kind items.

Learn more about the history of this Texas landmark. Then, make plans to join us for the next Trade Days weekend and enjoy a shopping experience like none other.
