On Wednesday, May 7, the Yellowhead Brewery will be filled with Edmontonians with a keen interest in local business, as it’s clear that spending your money locally makes a big, positive impact.
If you think, “But I can’t get everything locally!” this Green Drinks has the answer! Well, not quite for everything. But we have an amazing selection of local business and community leaders who might just surprise you on what you can get locally, or what the local impact can be. Each guest will receive a “Unique YEG Shopping List” and will explore and connect with the local business community to discover the variety of products and services you didn’t realize had a local twist.
