Lightfoot Market

Light­foot Mar­ket is a pop-up event for sus­tain­able busi­ness­es and con­sci­en­tious shop­pers. We cre­at­ed this mar­ket to show­case ven­dors and prod­ucts with a strong com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­i­ty. While that word gets thrown around a lot, to us “sus­tain­abil­i­ty” refers to a company’s envi­ron­men­tal, social and eco­nom­ic ini­tia­tives that not only cre­ate suc­cess­ful long-term busi­ness goals, but also con­tribute to the well-being of our plan­et and its com­mu­ni­ties.

You’ll find thought­ful­ly curat­ed goods, food, speak­ers and more.
