Happy Local Love

A big highlight of each week is getting to be a part of our local farmers’ markets. It doesn’t even seem like I’m working when I’m out there with my Happy Hemp girls. We are lucky enough to meet people from all walks of life, traveling from all over the United States. I have met some of the kindest, most sincere people that truly just want to help me succeed. It’s such a incredible feeling  to have so much support from both the local community and vendors that travel in each weekend to offer their speciality item.

Supporting local business is great for so many reasons:

Happy Local: The money spent at these markets goes right back into the local economy. It’s a win, win!

Happy Jobs: Small businesses create two out of every three new jobs. 50 percent of working Americans actually either own or work for a small business. Go us!

Happy Unique: Where we shop, eat, and have fun are all factors in what makes our community home. Unique, one-of-a-kind, mom and pop stores are what differentiate us from other towns.

Happy Environment: Local businesses make local purchases which means less transportation, habitat loss and pollution.

Happy Chatter: It’s pretty awesome to walk around chatting with local business owners to get the inside scoop on what’s happening throughout the community. They know best!

Happy Customers: Local businesses often have a higher level of customer service. The employees take more time to get to know the products and build personal relationships with their customers.

… and lets be honest, it just feels good to know exactly what you’re getting and where it came from!

Happy Local. Happy Community. Happy Hemp.
