The newly renovated Benson Park in South Kensington.

Whether you're looking to get some cash for your old stuff or trying to turn another person's trash into your treasure, Benson Park will have it all.

On Sunday, Oct. 2, a Mercado – or community market — will be held at the recently renovated park in South Kensington.

Neighbors will be selling used goods, crafts, art, produce and more from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Those interested in selling at the market can register for $10 if they bring their own table. Registration for those who need a table can do so for $20 before Sept. 30 or for $30 on the day of the market.

You can email bensonpark19122@gmail.com to register. All of the proceeds will go toward funding a new wall for the park's handball court.
