Uhuru Flea Market (Clark Park, West Philly) is back again this year and we’ll be there to spread the animal liberation message (as well as raise a few dollars for our expenses. Some of our expenses include supplies for things like leaflets (for our specific campaigns), buttons, signage, and so on. It’s not a lot of money, but it adds up. At the flea market, we usually net anywhere from $30 to $80 (after paying $70 for our space), and anything extra we make is donated to animal sanctuaries like https://www.facebook.com/SkylandsSanctuary.org/. Last year we donated over $200 to sanctuaries.
PLEASE RSVP HERE IF YOU CAN DEFINITELY COMMIT TO AT LEAST ONE HOUR.
We will be setting up between 8 am and 9 am and selling from our space from 9 am to 4 pm, and packing up around 5 pm. Please include the hours you are committing to in the comments or send an email to
PARKING: You can usually find free street parking near the flea market (43rd and Chester) although you may have to walk a block or two. Our space is usually on 43rd Street, south of Chester.
This is a really fun event. In addition to selling items, we have a table with animal liberation information, which has generated some fantastic discussions. A wonderful farmers market is also in Clark Park, right next to where we set up. Don’t miss it!
