Being green is easy at the EverGreen Gift Market, a city event on August 29 at the Northwest Arts Center where vendors will sell handmade, local, repurposed and sustainably-sourced goods.
The EverGreen Gift Market, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., is a free, family-friendly event, where visitors can discover new tastes, sights and smells, and browse some wonderful goods and crafts. The market is the first of two offered this year. A holiday version of the market will return on November 21 at Highland Middle School.
"The EverGreen Gift Market is an opportunity for our community to support local businesses and artisans," said Jennifer Goodhart, conservation and outreach administrator for the city. "You will find something for everyone on your gift list, and have the peace of mind of knowing that your purchases support a more sustainable future for you, your family and your community."
