MEDINA – Bargain hunters get ready: the annual Community Yard Sale and flea market returns on June 4.

Sherry Wheatley, who started the Community Yard Sale, will again head the 15th annual sale.

This will be the 15th year for the yard sale in the village of Medina. The event is sponsored by Medina Lions Club.

Founded and organized by Sherry Wheatley, the yard sale has become a popular event, featuring community-wide yard sales, and a flea market and chicken barbecue at the Pickle Factory, 711 Park Ave.

A near record 52 vendors have already signed up and spaces are still available by contacting Wheatley at (585) 735-5135. Cost is $15 for a 20’ x 30’ space.

Wheatley recommends buying chicken barbecue tickets in advance, as they usually sell out. Tickets may be reserved by calling Tim Moriarty at (716) 417-0079.

The chicken barbecue will be served from 11 a.m. until sold out. The yard sales and events at the Pickle Factory run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Lions will also have a food tent at the Pickle Factory, selling hot dogs and hamburgers.

Another feature of the yard sale is a traveling hot dog wagon, which the Lions call their “Roving Hotdogmobile.”

“This is a convenient way for shoppers to grab a bite to eat and get on to the next good deal,” Wheatley said.

Shoppers can buy a hot dog and drink by waving down the hotdogmobile as it drives through the streets.

The day begins early, when Lions members will be on the four corners of Main Street by 8:30 a.m., handing out maps of yard sale locations for a donation.

Wheatley reminds everyone that every dollar earned by the Lions goes back for services to help the community.
