Go sale-ing in New Castle Saturday
Western Garfield County Staff
NEW CASTLE ” If you’re into bargains, you’ll want to be shopping in New Castle on Saturday.
The second annual New Castle Flea Market will start up for the summer, and the annual Castle Valley Ranch Yard Sale runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This will be the second year of the flea market, which takes place in the parking lot of the New Castle Community Center on Main Street. Along with traditional yard sale items and antiques, the flea market will also feature a farmer’s market this year, with fresh Peach Valley produce.
“They’re going to set up here and have different types of produce and their own homemade honey,” said Robin Burkett, administrative assistant with the town of New Castle and coordinator of the event.
The flea market will start this weekend, and be every other Saturday through August.
Vendors will be allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis for the 16 spaces that are open, for $10 a piece.
“Last year was wonderful,” Burkett said. “It went really well. We had people here from Glenwood Springs, El Jebel and Grand Junction.”
Bargain hunters can also head up to the Castle Valley Ranch Yard Sale held every year in early June, where subdivision residents can put out items for sale on their front lawns.
“The yard sale started off with the baby-sitting co-op in Castle Valley,” said town clerk Lisa Cain. “The town took it over a couple of years ago. We’ve gotten such a good response to it that people now start calling several months in advance. Since there are so many people having it at the same time, they get a lot of customers.”
The yard sale is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
