Shopping local , shopping local, shopping local. I know I talk about it a lot but I honestly will go out of my way to support a local artisan whenever and wherever I can. This summer there are so many opportunities for you to get out into your neighbourhood and discover what locals are creating.
This weekend Market Collective will be set up inside Eau Claire Market in conjunction with the Calgary Folk Fest. If you have never hear of Market Collective the general idea is to promote local artists including musical artists and to empower the community. Their markets typically have over 100 vendors, all of them, local! They also host several DIY workshops throughout the year.
It’s your chance to head down to Eau Claire and check out something new, head on down!
