Want to clear some space in your house and make a few bucks at the same time? Gather up all of those extra household items and sell them to your neighbors! On Saturday, June 22, we're holding the first annual Sabin Yard Sale. We'll publicize the yard sale on craigslist and the Oregonian. All you have to do is post some signs directing customers to your house and put out your stuff by 9:00 am. If the yard sale is successful, maybe we can make it a tradition.
OK, the Fremont Market wasn't located in Sabin, but very close. From the mid-1940s till the late 1960s, it was situated on the southwest corner at the intersection of Williams Avenue and NE Fremont Street. The market included an old-fashioned butcher shop and the owner, John Sinner, was famous for his German sausage. The site is now a New Seasons Market, which periodically makes and sells sausage using John Sinner's recipe.
