Rusty Roots Show rolling into Tulare Sept. 16

Famous traveling “junk” show brings treasures new and old to the International Agri-Center


tulare – The Rusty Roots Show, a famous traveling marketplace boasting more than 150 vendors, will roll into the International Agri-Center in Tulare, Sept. 16.

Started in Visalia in 2012, the swap meet-style show—which now travels to three California locations—provides visitors a fun and eclectic shopping experience, featuring goods ranging from new to antique, vintage, junk, re-purposed, cleverly up-cycled and more.

Free to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Rusty Roots patrons can enjoy an afternoon seeking treasures within the variety of booths—many of which feature carefully curated collections or handcrafted items from the local community. Food trucks, offering a variety of tasty fare, are also onsite.

“The incredible participation and support from our community members is what makes Rusty Roots so successful,” said Whitney Scarbrough, event founder, and Visalia native. “Many of our vendors are local families, husband-and-wife duos or best friends, who are either carrying on a family tradition or just love having this side business as a creative outlet. This close-knit dynamic really drives the fun, positive energy of the event.”

For the ultimate collector, early bird tickets are available for $5 and allow entry to the event at 7 a.m. For more information on Rusty Roots or to purchase early bird tickets, visit
