The Egleston Farmers Market is back at a new location, and with a focus on sustainability.
The market is taking place in the Community Servings parking lot (179 Amory St.), just around the corner from the Stony Brook T station.
The market is being organized by local sustainability organization Mendi, which was started in 2018 by designer/researcher Will DeConto and event organizer Caitlin Kenney.
"Mendi’s Boston fights 'throw-away' consumerism and fast fashion by helping people invest in what they have and redistributing our community’s excess through our events, workshops, and publications," said a press release. "Our Style Revival events have repaired, upcycled or redistributed over 5,000 units of unused clothing within our community so far - over 1,500 of those went to non-profits helping Boston’s homeless or people in need."
Each month there will be different workshops including a monthly mending circle, community swaps, live tailors, bicycle repair with Bikes Not Bombs, and a monthly e-waste event. The market will be a drop spot for textile recycling every week and for electronics recycling the first Saturday of each month. There will be swaps for books, kids clothing/toys, housewares, and more -- and any leftovers go to local nonprofits. A calendar of programming will be available on EglestonFarmersMarket.com.
And every week there will be around 20 vendors including local artisans and non-profits.
The market takes place every Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, rain or shine. Below is a list of some regular and pop-up vendors:
