Earth Works: Earth Day Pop-up Market

Join us for an Earth Day celebration at Union Street Market! We’ll have a variety of local vendors selling eco-friendly products, sustainable goods, and up-cycled fashion — plus information and classes, so you can learn tips to help the planet.
While you’re in, take a look at our rehabilitated campus — which has already saved 7,500 tons of material from the landfill!
Earth Works is family-friendly. Come shop, learn, and celebrate our planet!
