Shop Local Holiday Bazaar: Support hyperlocal Cleveland small businesses with intentional spending

Neighbors in the Buckeye-Shaker community have organized a Holiday Bazaar featuring everything from soap-makers to craft-makers.

Shop local from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, December 21 at Fairhill Partners, 12200 Fairhill Rd.

The purpose of the Holiday Bazaar is to connect budding community entrepreneurs to customers, said Julian Khan, one of the organizers. Most vendors are residents of the Buckeye-Shaker and Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods.

“We’ve been asking ourselves some questions: What does intentional spending look like? Does that mean more jobs in your neighborhood? Can we transition more Want-trepreneurs to Entrepreneurs? That’s what we’re trying to do here. We’re connecting Want-trepreneurs to a customer base that can help to transform them into entrepreneurs.”

The event is free and open to the public. More than 20 vendors will be on site featuring artists, painters, youth entrepreneurs and a Vegan Vendor Village pop-up restaurant section.

Vegan Vendor Village will include:

  • Baba Yaga’s Green house Café
  • Damn Good Vegan, LLC
  • Rosemary’s Vegan Daughter
  • Sol Bowl Popup Café.
