Underground Local Markets all over the place!

We are certainly not the only ones sharing food, art, and skills with each other in an ultra-local venue. If you start to look on-line, you soon discover that we are a part of nation-wide movement to re-localize and re-connect with our community through an alternative marketplace.

Luckily, we’ve already been putting certain things into place to protect our market from having to change,  but it is always good to read about what other folks are up to as well.
