Sutler List for 2016

The Market Fair is over, but you can still shop on their websites!

There are hundreds of campers all in 18th century clothing, and over 140 Sutlers (vendors) selling their 18th century wares!

The 2017 23rd Annual
will be held
APRIL 27th – APRIL 30th, 2017.


The 2016 Market Fair has come and gone...it seemed sometimes in the blink of an eye.  On behalf of the Friends of Fort Frederick State Park and the Market Fair Committee, I would like to thank all of the sutler and camper participants for an outstanding event this year – the best yet!   Your support, through the quality of artisan’s offerings and everyone’s portrayals of life in the 1700s, gave our public visitors a rich and rewarding experience.

I also wish to thank all of the members of the public who came out to enjoy the atmosphere of the Fair and who supported our sutlers through their interest in their wares.

‘Going to Market Fair’ is a wonderful opportunity to increase ones knowledge of the French and Indian War and the important part that Fort Frederick played in helping protect the Maryland frontier during that conflict as well as learning about the fort’s role after that.  Your attendance at Market Fair and other park events help preserve and protect this marvelous structure and it’s surroundings.  We all hope that you had a wonderful time and that you come back again next year to see what we have in store. 

Please check our website and that of Fort Frederick State Park at http://dnr2.maryland.gov/publiclands/Pages/western/fortfrederick.aspx  for other historical, recreational and educational events.
