LEVERETT — A monthly market with local crafts and arts, live music, and a flea market begins outside the Leverett Village Co-op Saturday.

The Rattlesnake Gutter Second Saturdays Markets will run monthly, on the second Saturday of the summer and fall months, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the 180 Rattlesnake Gutter Road site.

Vendors will be set up on the lawn next to the picnic tables and playground, while people can also go inside the co-op for groceries and other food.

Among the vendors will be Laureen Shea with prints and greeting cards made from her original artwork, Susan Mulholland with silkscreened clothing, Todd Muller with hand-carved wooden bowls and serving utensils, Ina Peebles with glass and metal jewelry, Kristi Colbert with collages, prints and cards and John Varner with pottery.

Kari Ridge, clerk for the co-op’s board of directors and an organizer of the markets, said this is the first public event sponsored by the co-op in 15 months.

“It has been heartening to see so many people rally around our community’s gathering place,” Ridge said.

The live music for the first week will be a performance of jazz and blues from the 1920s and 1930s by Sawzaphonic, while DJ Brian Boyles will be spinning old school New Orleans rhythm and blues records.

In case of rain, the markets will be moved to the following day.
