The majority of markets are held in the last 2 1/2 months of the year, but you can host a market at any time. Having the event during the holiday/Christmas season or around Mother’s and Father’s Day can provide a valuable gift giving option that many would not consider otherwise. When your market date is chosen, confirm it on the organization's calendar, and begin advertising it on various publications.
If this is a first-year event, introducing the idea of Alternative Gifts should be fully discussed and explained, because there are many people who will not understand the premise of alternative giving. Also, understanding the forms and our projects require study and preparation. Our expert staff, as well as seasoned market hosts, are available to help guide you through the process if needed. Please contact us and let us know how we can help you.
