The Eau Claire Global Market is an annual event that connects community members from the Chippewa Valley and beyond with people and organizations from around the world who create fairly traded, handcrafted products and food items that promote sustainable livelihoods and community development. The 2018 Eau Claire Global Market brought more than 20 vendors representing over 40 countries around the world, and the 2019 Eau Claire Global Market had 30 vendors and raised $70,00 for these fabulous organizations!
After much deliberation, we have cancelled the 2020 Eau Claire Global Market. This was not a decision we reached lightly. We love bringing you into our community, but we feel that it would be nearly impossible to host a safe market this fall, for both our vendors and customers.
Introducing the Eau Claire Global Market 2020 Fall Showcase
In an effort to continue to offer our support to these wonderful organizations, we will be hosting a modified “virtual market” in the months leading up to the holidays. Follow us on Facebook (@eauclaireglobalmarket) and check out our blog to see regular updates about several of the fabulous vendors you would have seen in person at the live market, and learn how you can shop online to support their wonderful organizations.
This year has been a challenge for everyone. As soon as it is safe, the Eau Claire Global Market will be back, stronger and better than ever! Until then, please know that we hold you in our hearts, as well as all of the people around the world who are suffering from this global health crisis.
