    will be coordinating a Chelsea Community Garage Sale during the two-day Fresh Air Market. To learn more, visit this link.

“We want to convey to our customers that we have more to offer than traditional sidewalk sales. Chelsea’s commercial district has become a diverse community of home goods stores, garden shops, clothing and accessories, restaurants, wine, beer, non-alcoholic beverages, jewelry, markets, and so much more!” said Jennifer Fairfield, owner of the Garden Mill. The #shopchelseamich independent merchants are locally owned businesses that exemplify the uniqueness of Chelsea.

#shopchelseamich’s newest member, Jay Friend, Owner of Withington’s, shared, “Since we opened our doors six months ago, we’ve seen huge support from community shoppers AND businesses. We’re excited to keep working with other businesses on creative collaborations and to continue serving the community of Chelsea and beyond. We always see a huge business boost when the city businesses participate together and bring people into town. We’re thankful for events put on by #shopchelsemich and look forward to the Fresh Air Market!”
