Berry Street Flea Market to mark 37 years this Saturday

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Residents on Berry Street are busy preparing for their 37th annual Berry Street Flea Market to be held on Saturday, Oct. 1.

Visitors will find just about anything they can imagine as they roam Berry Street from Jackson Street east to Bloomington Street as well as along the north/south streets in between.

A wide variety of food and sweet goodies will be available throughout the Berry Street area.

The traditional bean soup, being cooked over an open fire and accompanied by cornbread, will again be served in the front yard of Randy and Rhonda Evans on South College Avenue. They will have an array of other items on their menu, including biscuits and gravy for the early risers.

Hamburgers and brats will be cooked on the grill under the big tent at the corner of Berry and Indiana streets. There visitors will also find caramel corn from Gus's Popcorn Co. and much more throughout the event.

The yard of Dave and Jackie Young, who have lived on West Berry Street for more than 60 years, is a stop not to be missed. They have been busy cleaning out and sorting their wares and Jackie, who was instrumental in organizing the event 37 years ago, is even selling some of her own watercolor art work.

Berry Street is located a mile south of the courthouse square in Greencastle. Port-o-lets will be placed on Warren Street (aka Green Acres Lane), between Jackson and Indiana streets, and also in the parking lot on the east side of the Berry Insurance office at the corner of Berry and Locust.

The city has exempted the no-parking regulation on the south side of Berry Street for the day.
