Flea market Oct. 6
Harvard’s first Flea Market was sponsored by the League of Women Voters in 1972. Since then it has been an annual community event, held on the grounds of The Bromfield School on Route 111. In the 1980’s the Harvard Conservation Trust became a co-sponsor. In 2008 the Harvard Schools Trust became a third sponsor and replaced the Conservation Trust in 2009.
Each year thousands of bargain-hunters browse through more than 170 booths of antiques, collectibles, and household treasures. Local non-profit organizations sell a variety of foods and drinks. Don’t miss Harvard’s biggest and best event!
