BACK OF THE YARDS — Plant Chicago’s farmers market will feature a free store and community swap Saturday.
The event is 11 am-3 pm at Davis Square Park, 4430 S. Marshfield Ave. People can bring clothing, accessories, sports gear or small home appliances to swap with neighbors, and they can pick up free personal protective equipment, farmers market coupons and tools from the Chicago Tool Library, organizers said.
Plant Chicago is partnering with Circulate Chicago for the event. The free store and community swap are the same time and place as the weekly farmers market.
“Swap events and free stores like this are crucial to build stake in if we are looking to make sure everyone in our community has what they need while lowering the environmental footprint of our consumption,” according to the event invite.
Registration isn’t necessary to attend, but people can register here.
