Community Yard Sale Scheduled for Aug. 21

Mountain Mail ReportsThe annual Socorro community yard sale will be held in conjunction with the Farmers’ Market in and around the Plaza from 8-11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21.
Residents will be able to have space to sell their yard sale items for only $5.
In addition to fresh local produce at the Farmers Market, there will be arts and crafts, and food vendors in the park, and entertainment.
According to Tourism Director Deborah Dean the Community Yard Sale, sponsored by the City of Socorro, will include entertainment in the gazebo and plenty of treasures and bargains galore. Socorro businesses are also encouraged to open up their doors and actively participate by holding Sidewalk Sales throughout town.
The city wide sale is a part of the Keep Socorro Beautiful Campaign to encourage locals to clean out their closets, garages, and yards before the end of the summer.
“This is your opportunity to let the community know what you do, what services you provide, how people get involved with your group or organization and how one would become a volunteer,” Dean said. “If you would like to set up an informational booth representing your organization there are free booth spaces available. You provide your own table, chairs and handouts.”
Set-up begins at 7 a.m.
Food vendor fees are $25.
There is no vendor fee for non-profit informational booths.
Vendor forms available at the Socorro Heritage and Visitors center, 217 Fisher, or online at For more information call 835-8927
