    On or in the grounds of schools and other community buildings

    In the UK, car boot sales are a form of market in which private individuals come tegether in the grounds of schools and other community buildings, in grassy field fields, or parking lots to sell their goods.

    1. Is it correct to use 'on' in the above context?

    Car boot sales are usually taken places on weekend morning?

    2. Is it correct to use 'at' or 'in' in the above context?

    Thanks.

    1 You could use it the first, but the second doesn't work so well.
    2 I wouldn't use either of them. I would say Car boot sales usually take place on weekend mornings.
