Think globally, shop locally. C’mon out and purchase your Holiday gifts from local artisans and fair trade vendors. The event will feature local handmade and fair trade vendors, a bake sale, live holiday music, and photos with Santa! Bring the family for holiday shopping while getting a keepsake photo for this year’s Christmas cards! Help us create a more just economy and have a lot of fun doing it. We hope to see you there!
Mission statement: The Eastside Holiday Bazaar & Fair Trade Market is a community event that encompasses an alternative approach to traditional Christmas preparations. Seeking to take gift giving back to a place of joyful exchange and away from the stresses of a crowded mall, the event encourages the sale and production of hand made, fair trade and personal gifts. By providing a location to purchase these items, it also seeks to inform patrons about other local and international justice issues they can have an impact on throughout the year. Through music, visual art, family activities and a meal, the event will also be a time to share in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in preparation for the celebration of the birth of our savior.
