This Week at The Local - March 8, 2022
Updated: Mar 8
It wouldn't be the Spring season of The Local without a rainy day! Due to wet and cold weather, our market will be canceled tomorrow.
Just like past seasons, The Local will run for 12 Tuesdays in a row starting March 8th through May 24th. The Local is open from 4-7pm and every week will feature a unique vendor lineup.
Keep scrolling for a few helpful tips and tricks, and this week's giveaway featuring Lemonade House!
Tips for attending The Local
Early bird gets the worm (or tote!)
At every market we give away 50 custom, reusable Local tote bags and they run out quick! Showing up when we open at 4pm almost always guarantees that you can snag one of our free cute tote bags. It is also not uncommon for our vendors to sell out of their produce/products, especially on busy markets like the first one, so by getting there early you can also get a bigger variety of products to choose from.
However, keep in mind we are open until 7pm! if you are unable to get to market right at 4pm don't fret - there will still be plenty of wonderful products to see and buy.
Try something new
Don’t forget to explore. The Local offers a variety of different types of vendors. Challenge yourself to try at least one new vendor each week! Who knows? You might just find your new favorite item.
Get to know the vendors
Each vendor has a unique and inspiring story about how and why they started their business and created their products. Not only are the vendors there to promote and sell their products, but they are also there to get to know their customers, so don't be shy to ask questions and get to know the awesome people behind these amazing products.
