The Providence Flea is an award-winning community market, returning to the Providence River Greenway for the outdoor season starting Sunday, May 12, across from 345 South Water Street, Providence, from 10 am - 4 pm, and every Sunday through September 29 (except September 15 due to a conflicting road race). Featuring the area's best local vintage vendors, artists and makers, plus community nonprofits, food trucks, and live musicians! Always free with free on-street parking throughout the city on Sundays. (Accepting vendors throughout the summer.)
Save the Date! The Office of Sustainability is once again partnering with the Rhode Island Sierra Club, Green Energy Consumers Alliance, the Racial and Environmental Justice Committee, and others to host the 2019 SustainPVD Fair. This year we've teamed up with The Avenue Concept to host the fair at their creative hub in Upper South Providence.
Events throughout the day will include a Compost Workshop at the SustainPVD Fair hosted by Groundwork Rhode Island and a Rain Barrel Workshop at the SustainPVD Fair hosted by the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council. You can visit our many vendor tables for details on how to make your home more energy efficient, how to go solar, and more. You'll also be able to access The Avenue Concept's Paint Bar and contribute to their graffiti wall throughout the day!
This community event is family friendly and will include food and entertainment. It is free and open to the public, however the compost and rain barrel workshops will have a separate registration process and small fee, which include the supplies and materials for participants to take home their own compost bin and/or rain barrel.
If you are interested in getting involved with the event, sponsoring, or hosting a table, please email SustainPVD@providenceRI.gov.
