Shift Your Shopping

This holiday season, if Milwaukeeans choose to shift an additional 10% of shopping from national chains to #localbusiness, we would create roughly $100 million in new economic activity in our local economy every year.


Let’s get the entire community to #ShopLocal this holiday season! Invite your friends and family to attend the 2017 Buy Local Gift Fair.


We’re doing all we can to shift our spending and #shoplocal this holiday season.  Join us on November 19th as Local First Milwaukee brings together 45+ #local businesses at The Mitchell Park Domes – Annex.



Entry at the door is a $7 donation OR $5 with a donation of a non-perishable food item to support Hunger Task Force.
