Talent, Ore. - This weekend two dozen vendors from across Southern Oregon got together for the city's Artisans and Growers market.
It's a chance for small, local businesses to showcase their products and connect with local customers and members of the community.
A community that is passionate about helping each other out, especially now at a time where many aspects of life compare more to a time before the pandemic.
Not only do small businesses provide quality shopping opportunities in your own local area, but they also help keep said communities thriving.
Supporting small businesses also means you're supporting your local economy, as well as fueling the passions of those around you.
It's events like today that allow for up-and-coming entrepreneurs like himself to work on their craft, make connections with local vendors, and also interact with their customers to provide that local community-like experience.
All of which comes to show the overall appreciation summed up throughout the weekend event.
