PLAINFIELD, NJ — Signs of spring are popping up all around Plainfield, as seen this weekend. From flea markets and food trucks, to flowers and futbol, the Queen City had something to show off.

On Saturday, the duCret School of Art hosted its first flea market. Visitors had the chance to shop for crafts and collectibles, and to learn more about the art school and classes being offered. And, of course, they grabbed some empanadas at the Cave Kitchen food truck that was on site.

Councilman Sean McKenna, Det. Inesha Nash, and Assemblywoman Linda Carter were there to support, too. Stay tuned, the flea market will be back next month.

The daffodils were bright at the Shakespeare Garden on Sunday. Maintained by the Plainfield Garden Club since 1927, the site is part of the New Jersey Women's Heritage Trail "because of the significant contributions of women's volunteer organizations in New Jersey. They fostered a strength of purpose that has been an inspiration and motivation for conservation activism in America and around the world."

It was hard to find a parking spot at Cedar Brook Park, filled with folks playing soccer, basketball and baseball, and spectators cheering their teams on. As a county park, Cedar Brook has been open for passive recreation since May 2020, but Plainfield municipal parks and playgrounds have remained closed for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. They will reopen on Saturday, May 1.
