Portland Buy Local gave out 200 Buy Local Bucks at the Portland Farmers’ Market on Wednesday, June 27th. The free Bucks, worth $1 at the market, courtesy of Portland Buy Local, were distributed in honor of the organization’s sixth anniversary and as part of Independents Week, a national celebration of locally owned businesses during the week leading up to July 4th.
The Buy Local Bucks – all two hundred of them – were given away by 10am. Many shoppers who arrived later, however, were there for the cutting of the Buy Local 6th Anniversary cake, which was made by Foley’s Bakery. Visitors to the Buy Local table received cake, Buy Local bumper stickers, and a copy of the new 2012-2013 Buy Local Directory.
