McKinney’s historic Tuesday trading day is coming to an end – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

For the more than 300 vendors that make up the Tuesday Monday Trades Day in McKinney, this weekend marks the permanent end of one of North Texas’ oldest weekend markets.

It’s an iconic market with roots going back to the 1800s.

Salesman Joe McKinney said: “The last time it was a really good weekend, and cold like this.

Joe McKinney said his grandfather started working at the historic market 70 years ago.

McKinney has worked here since the age of 15. He now works alongside his daughters.

“It will be very sad to miss all the people I have met over the course of my life every month, once a month, for 50 years,” McKinney said.

Owner Karen Lewis and her husband have decided it’s time to retire.

“We both taught high school for 25 years. We have owned this for over 26 years. Physically and mentally, we decided maybe it was time to stop,” Lewis said.

Many “for sale” signs signaled the end of an era, and many people visited the market for the last time.

“It’s 37 degrees and here we are. That is the last day. Customer Ashlea Thach said we’ve decided to launch this weekend.

Many suppliers said they plan to continue doing business in other markets in North Texas.

“All good things come to an end. And, I guess this is the end,” Lewis said.
