20 Vendors Each Week! Sustainability-Focused Egleston Farmers Market Every Saturday
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."
