Kari Snodgrass first tried making some body care products when she was in high school, after her sensitive skin reacted to products bought in stores. It wasn’t until several years later when she considered turning it into a business.
“I didn’t even know you could make your own soap,” she said about her high school experiment.
Now, Kari works full time running Studio 11 Soap, a soap and body care business, that primarily sells at the Phoenix Public Market.
With all the local marketplaces and events this time of year, those of us who are embedded in our community of local do-ers and movers don’t necessarily need an annual tradition boosted by a credit card company to remember the importance of supporting local economy. Still, Small Business Saturday is another one of those special days each year that we love, appreciate, and look forward to.
According to the National Retail Federation, about 164 million consumers are expected to shop on Black Friday in 2017. For the seventh year, Small Business Saturday plans to redirect some of those shoppers to local businesses across the country rather than big-box retailers. For every $100 spent at a local business, $43 stays in local economy, whereas only $13 stays in local economy if spent at a non-locally-owned business.
Eleanor Dziuk knew there were plenty of beekeepers in Arizona, but she wasn’t seeing their honey for sale at local farmers markets, so in 2001, she set out to change that.
“Most beekeepers are very, very busy people,” Eleanor said. “They don’t have time to be at the markets.”
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14. Nothing says “I love you, mom!” like locally grown bouquets and delicious, handmade treats from the Phoenix Public Market. Shop local gifts and groceries each Saturday 8am-1pm.
Enjoy a special Mother’s Day Market on Saturday, May 13th!
