Looking for treasures for your home including some of this year’s offerings like vintage linens, books, crystal, furniture, lamps, decorative garden accessories and housewares? In addition to these great Flea Market finds, artists and crafters will also sell their wares including handmade pillows, doggie bandanas, creative signs and beautiful photographs and cards. We have also added a workshop from 10:00 – 10:45 “Putting Your Garden to Bed for the Winter” by Sean Halloran of Parterre Gardens, Inc. and a demonstration on “Creating a Tasty Italian Tomato Appetizer” from 12:00-12:45 by chef Lucia Marinai
We will have coffee, soft drinks, hot dogs and homemade sweets and savory goodies as well as lavender sachets, herbed vinegars from the garden and planters and pots and more for sale. There is also a kids’ play area.
Join us in the community garden for a great day of shopping, eating, learning and enjoying the garden. The Gardens for Charlestown garden is located at the intersection of Main and Bunker Hill Streets, near Sullivan Square. There is MBTA bus service Rt. #93 (and Rt. #92 Sat. only) from Haymarket and Sullivan Square dropping you off at the garden. The Orange Line station at Sullivan Square is a 10 minute walk from the Garden and there is street free parking available.
Gardens for Charlestown is an independent, a not-for-profit
organization dedicated to education, beautification and gardening.
Proceeds from this event support maintaining and operating the Garden.
