Somerville's first ever Yart Sale! Did your children make tons of macaroni artwork during quarantine? Did you find the post card collections from your great, great, great grandparents in your basement? Or are you an artist making lots of artwork and need to sell or exhibit? Bring your quarantine artwork outdoors! 

Yart Sale is an opportunity for you to showcase or sell from the comfort of your yards, driveways and porch. Think of a yard sale but with ART! 

How does Yart Sale work? When you open the map you will see the map legend representing the three time zones through Somerville.
