For over ten years, tall grass and weeds occupied the front lawn of the former Mill Spring School, now the countys new Agricultural Economic Development Center. But this Saturday marks the centers second monthly Schoolyard Flea Market and Swap Meet.
Held the last Saturday of every month, the market opens again May 29 at 7 a.m. for vendors to set-up and at 8 a.m. for transactions to begin. This event marks another effort at the new Ag center to revitalize the building and lands use while helping boost local incomes.
“We want people to come in and vend their personal or professional/commercial items and for bargain hunters to find things they were looking for or didnt even know they needed,” says Carol Lynn Jackson, Ag Center organizer and owner of Saludas Manna Cabanna, a local organic agricultural marketplace.
Vendors this month include plants, custom wood furnishings, jewelry makers, produce and livestock producers, household items, The Poster Hut, The Lot Box booth, and more. No reasonable vendors turned away. Vendors provide their own tent and table. The market is advertised across county lines. Plan to stay until 2 p.m. Concessions are available.
Vendors may want a fanny pack for money, change, a hat, sandwich bags for jewerly, a rain tarp, a sun umbrella, rags to clean, etc. To register for this Saturdays sale, or for further questions, call Moira McCormick, Polk County Agricultural Economic Development Office, at 828-894-2281.
