OSCEOLA COUNTY — This coming weekend, there are going to be a couple of great shopping days along U.S. 10.

Great shopping days. Wise shopping days.

With prices for just about everything going up, coming down, and going up again in recent weeks, more and more folks are looking for great buys and good bargains closer to home.

This coming weekend, one of Evart’s signature summer kick-off events takes place — something that can both keep people closer to home and give them the best bang for their buck.

Excitement is growing as the date of the Evart Chamber of Commerce’s “biggest and best” flea market and yard sale in Osceola County draws near.

Planners say interest in what has easily become the biggest outdoor marketplace in the area has been enthusiastic and the marketplace site will be jammed with dealers and bargain hunters.

The annual Flea Market and Yard Sale “happening” takes place just off U.S. 10, west of town and is set for Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, (rain or shine) in the Evart Air Industrial Park.

Sales begin on Saturday at 8 a.m. and run through ... whenever.

Sunday sales are from 11 a.m. through 5 p.m.

Planners with the Evart Chamber of Commerce team are expecting thousands to fill the outdoor market place — cutting some great deals and making some great buys.

The crowd has been growing for years, and inquires into the ‘how’ and ‘when’ have been coming in for months.

The U.S. 10 location offers a great place for a lot of stop-in traffic.

There will be plenty of parking for customers. As in years past, an expansive parking has been marked off close to the shopping action.

There will be all sort of goodies on hand from cold drinks to snack items to tide you over from a variety of venders.

There will be craft venders, a ton of yardsale things put out by individuals and groups, and much more.

There are going to be some interesting antiques set out for sale as well.
