Beautiful work of art by the local wasps.
As the festive season once again nears I just wanted to focus your attention on a couple of words.
This holiday season try to make an effort to purchase one of your gifts from a local entrepreneur. Try to find items that are made in Canada, made from recycled materials, grown organically or naturally, have been produced from products which were locally grown. The Saskatoon Farmer's Market is a great place to look around for items that fit any of the above categories. It is a diverse marketplace where you can find everything from vegetables to skin care, and everything in between. Starting Sunday Nov 13th, the Saskatoon Crafters are going to be offering their products to the public, along with the regular Market vendors from 10:00-3:00 on Sunday's. Check out their website www.saskatooncrafters.com.
Another website I wanted to bring to your attention is www.localsask.ca. This is a website that showcases products which have been produced locally in Saskatchewan. It has been around for only a few months and was created by a local entrepreneur, Marsha Lemon. The website is a one stop shop for everything made in Saskatchewan. Check out the site often as more and more businesses are featuring their products. If you are looking for clothing which are ethically produced stop in at a new shop called Luna + Hill at 208-3rd Ave South. They carry lines of clothing which are new and/or have been created from recycled materials. Their website is www.lunaandhill.com. Another very diverse shopping experience is The Better Good at 640 Broadway Ave. Items they offer for sale in their store must fall into one or all of the following categories, Organic, Local, Fair Trade, Handmade, Natural, made from Reused or Recycled products. Their website is www.thebettergood.com.
If we all make an effort to gift a gift which falls into any of the categories above, the world will be a better place for future generations.
