Connecting regional makers + buyers in the Pennsylvania Wilds.
ABOUT THE EVENT
This one-day trade show connects retail establishments with quality wares, gifts, foods and beverages crafted in the Pennsylvania Wilds.
Orders for PA Wilds Made products can be placed in bulk at wholesale pricing for qualified buyers. This is also a great opportunity for wholesalers to learn more about how to get their products into the PA Wilds Conservation Shop.
Hosted by the PA Wilds Center for Entrepreneurship and the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania (WCO), in partnership with the Clarion University Small Business Development Center, the Buyer’s Market is a “made local, sell local” themed event.
