The Buy Local Marketplace event is where you can get a jump on holiday season gift buying, keeping your money circulating right here and benefiting our own local economy. The event will be on Saturday, November 3, at the National Automobile Museum in downtown Reno. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Admission is $2 per person or 2 cans of food per person, free for kids 16 and under. Proceeds go to the National Automobile Museum and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.
At Buy Local Marketplace, you'll be able to choose from an amazing variety of goods and services offered by locally - owned businesses. Check out this list of participating businesses to see who and what will be there.
If you doubt the powerful economic advantages of keeping local money circulating locally, consider that by doing so we help create local jobs and could generate up to $350 million for our community by simply shifting 10% of our spending away from big box corporate stores to businesses owned by our neighbors.
