'meet you at the market' recap

market vendors are innovating as we #flattenthecurve - order online, curbside pickup, business pivots - but the work continues!


during the month of March, we we so excited to focus on markets because markets are for everyone!  we called that thing #meetyouathtemarket

and it was going great till about halfway through the month.  then the Covid-19 pandemic changed the way we went about doing things. 

nevertheless, there are stories to stare! 

artisans, craftspeople, food makers, entertainers, community members, and others draw from what we have right here at home to celebrate diversity and togetherness. 

markets are a collection of culture - an exploration of food, goods, and experiences from cultures all over the world.
