Diamond Flea Market vendors are getting back on their feet just one week after watching their livelihoods go up in flames.

At the time of the fire, the market contained 40-50 booths filled with unique items from various vendors.

As soon as it was possible, those vendors were eager to see what they could salvage among the rubble.

Now, they are inviting the community back to their parking lot to showcase what their vendors still have to offer with a Pop-Up Flea Market event.

Along with vendor booths, there will be hotdogs and hamburgers for sale. All the proceeds from food and drink sales will be donated to vendors who were impacted by the fire.

The Market says this pop-up event is a way to show the community that they might be down ... but they're not out just yet.

The Pop-Up Market will take place right on Diamond Avenue where the building once stood.

Food and vendors will be out in the parking lot on Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 5.

Wednesday morning marked our coldest start to a day in nearly 3 weeks - morning low temperatures dove into the single digits for much of the Tri-State and our northerly winds routinely drove wind chill values well below zero throughout the Lower Ohio Valley. If there was any silver lining, our clear skies did allow temperatures to climb back into the mid 20s later in the day; though Evansville’s peak temperature of 25° remained 17° below average for this time of the year. The clear skies are expected to linger throughout the evening and much of the night ahead and will allow temperatures to fall back down into the mid to low teens early Thursday morning. We will fall to 14° in Evansville around daybreak Thursday.
