The Melrose Trading Post is an organization that raises money for school funds and programs at Fairfax High School. The admission fee will be $3 beginning on Sunday, August 4. The flea market takes place every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fairfax High School.


The increase in price is reportedly due to the need for better school funds, and since the flea market is a popular attraction for both tourists and residents in the area, the Melrose Trading Post is taking the opportunity to raise more money for the high school.
