Williston Hosts Fifth Annual Free Market in Honor of Earth Day

On Sunday, April 17, The Williston Northampton School will host the Fifth Annual Free Market. All are invited to bring unwanted, reusable items to the Athletic Center for donation and then to shop amongst all the free stuff. It is also possible to drop off items without shopping or to just “shop” without donating. This is a great opportunity to clean out attics, closets, cupboards, and storage areas in time for spring.
In past years, available items have included clothes, luggage, books, toys, game systems, small appliances, dishes, lamps, sports equipment, and more. Market organizer Nola-rae Cronan, Williston’s director of diversity and student activities, says that each year, the free market has gotten bigger. “It is always a joy to see so many items being carried away to new homes and not to the dump,” she says.
Drop off runs from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., with shopping from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. If you can carry it, you can bring it or find it at the Free Market.
