Finnegan’s Market, a popular family-run business in Hudson, Que., shuts down – Montreal |

A beloved family run flea market in Hudson, Que. has closed down after working for decades in the small community.

Finnegan’s market, which operates on Storgatan, has been a mainstay in the municipality since 1972. It could receive up to 2,000 visitors – and it was popular. It attracted customers from as far afield as Vermont, New Hampshire and Ontario.

The owners wrote on their Facebook page with “heavy hearts” that they chose not to open the seasonal business again, which showcased a range of products from antiques to homemade meals.

“We did not take this family decision lightly and hope it will be received with understanding,” the post said.

However, the Covid-19 pandemic presented a number of new challenges. The health crisis forced Finnegan’s market to close for the 2020 season.

It also appeared to be closed for most of 2021, with the company referring to capacity and health restrictions.

However, the family had a message of gratitude to everyone who has visited the iconic market over the decades.

“We thank our loyal suppliers, customers, employees, friends and neighbors for their unwavering support for almost 50 years,” the owners wrote.
