Alternative Fair!


THE FAIR IS 2 DAYS--Friday 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm and Saturday 10:00 am until 2:00 pm!

Metro Justice’s values are integral to our annual Alternative Fair. You can enjoy FAMILY HOLIDAY SHOPPING with a conscience at Metro Justice’s 35th annual Alternative Fair, featuring thousands of unique fair trade, earth friendly, and locally produced goods that support a strong local economy and a just and sustainable world.

Want to be a vendor?  Contact Andrew Thomas, Fundraising and Membership Director (, for a vendor application and information.

This is holiday shopping at prices the whole family can afford, and for many families, it’s their #1 shopping destination each year.  Sale items include pottery, textiles, jewelry, fine art, toys & games, ornaments, and much more — all fair trade imports or hand crafted by local artists.

There is a suggested donation of $3 for all those over age 12, and free child care is available for young children and babies. Bring the whole family for several hours, and enjoy the festive atmosphere as you shop with a conscience.  Food will be available and chances are you’ll see many friends, too!
