LLF maintains an online Buy Local Month Holiday Market Calendar to help the community find and enjoy the many pop-up markets that highlight local makers and craftsmen throughout the season. The calendar runs through the end of the year and is updated regularly. Why is shopping local so important? According to LLF, "when you support locally-owned businesses, 45% of those dollars spent stay within our community as opposed to only 14% when choosing to buy from non-local businesses."
