SUMMIT, NJ - Every year, consumers celebrate -- or perhaps it is endure -- the commercially-created frenzy known as 'Black Friday'.
Given the Hilltop City's affinity for the Summit Free Market, the popular student-run initiative that sees residents bring reusable, yard-sale quality items to share -- and take whatever they may want or need at no charge, perhaps the two days each in spring and fall the market occupies should be, moving forward, referred to as 'Green Saturday'.
The Free Market is back, and will be held April 28 and May 5, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
The event also serves to recycle items that may otherwise may have would up in the City's waste stream. Since its inception in 2008, the Summit Free Market has served more than 5,000 residents and has kept over 125 tons of reusable material from being discarded.
The City of Summit Transfer Station is located at 40 New Providence Avenue.
