In days of yore when the country was almost entirely farmland, people gathered at the local market once a week to buy, sell, and trade but it was more than a place to do business, it was a chance for the community to socialize. Today, craft fairs offer the atmosphere for buyers to interact department stores do not allow while buying local as opposed to from large corporations. And, in these parts, there are no shortage of them.
