The GFWC Junto Woman’s Club is getting ready for its sixth annual flea market that will be held this Saturday at Oakland Christian Church in Chuckatuck, 5461 Godwin Blvd. The market will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This year’s market will offer an array of household items, baked goods, plants, garden items, holiday items and “a number of surprises,” according to a press release.

The Junto Club has been a positive force in the Suffolk community for more than 90 years, with a motto of “unity in diversity and our community, a better place.” This flea market will help the club fundraise for its various efforts in the community.
