Shop Local This Holiday Season at our Holiday Flea Market on December 23rd!
Shop Local This Holiday Season
Local Entrepreneurs, Craftspeople, Artists and Collectors come together every Sunday at the corner of Melrose and Fairfax Avenues to generate community-based funding for the local high school, Fairfax High School.
Support a model that brings the community together at the Melrose Trading Post.
Money is power; Money is our voice. Where does your money go when you shop locally vs non-locally?
“Going local does not mean walling off the outside world. It Means nurturing locally owned businesses which use local resources sustainably, employ local workers at decent wages and serve primarily local consumers. It means becoming more self-sufficient and less dependant on imports. Control moves from the boardrooms of distant corporations and back into the community where it belongs.”
– Michael H. Shuman, author of the book Going Local
