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.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
