Friendships

Let's be friends and celebrate handmade!

Being friends with our market is a great way to highlight your brand to our audience.  It also helps us offset the cost for our makers to participate, add fun activities for our shoppers to enjoy, and helps us grow each market!  We’d love for you to be involved in the next Poppi Seed Market!
