about us

We curate shop local events to build entrepreneurship & cultivate community.

Fall For Local™ is community for established and emerging entrepreneurs interested in gaining brand exposure, sharing knowledge and collaborating with other creative entrepreneurs to promote the “circle economy” philosophy. Through our markets we act as a space for independent businesses to showcase and sell their product while cultivating new connections within the community. At it’s core it’s simply a desire to want to see local connecting with local ultimately helping strengthen and organically grow the local economy.
