Thoughtful repairs at Inwood Farmers Market

Posted

Pop Up Repair, a self-described “intervention in the cycle of use-and-discard consumerism,” is coming to the Inwood Farmers Market.

For four weeks in June 2013, a group of theater artists activated a storefront repair shop, fixing household objects brought in by members of the community. The pop-up shop was the experimental first step in a larger research project investigating our relationships with the objects we use every day: what they mean, what they’re worth, and why we repair and reuse instead of buying new.

The group will be at the Inwood Farmers Market for the next several weekends. The market is located at Isham Street between Seaman Avenue and Cooper Street. It is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. year-round.
