Last week we wrote about buying local — it really is important, and easy to boot. The best way to shop small is to head to a local (you’ll see that word a few more times, FYI) holiday market or pop-up shop. We’ve done our best to list everyone we found — if we’re missing a market that you’re hosting please let us know so we can update this list. Email with deets.
