Did you know this week is Buy Local Week? Did you know that by pledging to spend $100 of your shopping dollars this holiday season at locally-owned independent stores, you will have a potential $23 million dollar impact on our community, an estimated $7.1 million dollars more than if it was spent at a non-local big box retailer! Here are two ways you can participate in Buy Local Week:
Wednesday 12/3 is Eat Local Night. Join us at Fish for a "local lover plate" to spotlight the wide diversity of local food and to encourage others by your example to support our local economy and farmers in the area. Go out to eat on 12/3.
Join--who else--local supporters for the headline event of Buy Local Week. Music by Carrie Ann Hearst, local beer, wine and food from some of the best chefs in town: Fish, FIG, Monza, Fat Hen, Coco's, Taco Boy, Maverick Southern Kitchens, the Culinary Institute, Holy City Hospitality, Old Firehouse, Cypress, Tristan and Middleton Place.
