Reason 3 to buy local - Smorgasburg!


Why Buy Locally Owned?

Reason 3:
Keep our community unique: Where we shop, where we eat and have fun -- all of it makes our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of this place. Our tourism businesses also benefit. “When people go on vacation they generally seek out destinations that offer them the sense of being someplace, not just anyplace.” ~ Richard Moe, President, National Historic Preservation Trust

I love supporting some of the exciting local shopping that reflect all of the vibrant artists of this city. The Brooklyn Flea comes to mind, with it's Smorgasburg location offering unique eats each weekend direct from the makers. Here are some pics from last weekend.
