The first edition of the Eco Market Malta will be held at one of the most precious nature spots in Malta; The Gaia Foundation at Ghajn Tuffieha.
Bringing together a handpicked and carefully vetted selection of eco-artisans and businesses, as well as a jam-packed schedule of events, things will kick off at 11am and finish at 6pm on both days. Running in parallel to the market will be a number of workshops for adults and children, as well as talks, and a chance to get involved in some free yoga and meditation.
The vendors that are taking part have all met a number of eco-standards and requirements both in terms of the way they conduct their business, and the way they will exhibit at the market.
Entrance to the market is free, as are most of the activities with the exception of a few that may ask for a small donation to cover the cost of materials.
The Eco Market is a 100% non-profit organisation that is focused on creating a community of responsible businesses and conscious consumers. Not only is it a great place to check out Eco and environmentally friendly products on the market, but it is a way to meet like-minded people, whilst expanding your knowledge and be the change you want to see.
