Overview
More
The Good Market was started in 2012 as a volunteer-driven event to promote local products and services that are "good for the planet, good for the country, and good for you." The event is curated, which means all of the vendors go through an application and review process to make sure they meet the Good Market standards. There are more than 60 stalls with organic produce, tasty natural foods, ethical handicrafts and household products, kids programs, live music and more.
