Correct me if I’m wrong, but are you talking about all the “bargain hunters” who are looking for deals prior to the actual event time?
( I could use other words to describe these people but I won’t here).
That is the case at every single Hamfest I have been to and Swapmeet.
As they say, “ the early bird gets the worm“ and sometimes you just have to deal with it.
The only fix is to come earlier. Ha!

Thanks for running it - i was super-happy to be there and do shopping.
Unfortunately, the real 'problem' is something that's the case in any
hamfest, swapfest, etc. 95% of the 'dealing' is done before hte
public arrives. I am as guilty of this as the next person, but I was
in there 20m after the official opening date, and the piles of 'sold!'
gear was enormous. Too many buyers, too little gear maybe?
I don't really have a fix for this. Perhaps a chunk of it is
post-pandemic "YAY we can start doing this again!" enthusiasm.
