Exhibitors

We’re glad these exhibitors have chosen to spend Earth Day with us because they form the heart of Earth Fair. Please show your support for them by not only shopping or learning from them once a year, but all year long! Let them know you saw them at Earth Fair; they would love to hear from you! In fact, Earth Fair can be a significant source of funding for many of the non-profits and small family businesses, so purchase gifts for yourself or others and be assured your money is staying local and supporting a good cause.
