The Green Alliance and Kittery Community Market come together to host the Green Families Celebration and Market, a day of fun featuring the traditional farmers market vendors and new family friendly vendors and activities. Discover the Green Families community on Sunday, August 23.

This year, the Kittery Community Market added new venders and sponsors. One new sponsor is the Green Alliance, a union of local and regional businesses that have sustainable initiatives at the core of their business model, and consumer members looking to shop with eco-friendly businesses.

The event is focused on bringing together the local community, especially families, as well as the regular market crowd with live music, face painting, a scavenger hunt, games and prizes for the kids. As its own weekly summer event, the Kittery Community Market is held Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Kittery at Post Office Square featuring local produce, foods, and crafts. On August 23 the market will expand with the addition of sustainable vendors from the Green Alliance, along with a post celebration meet-up at nearby Tributary Brewing Company.

The Green Families Club (GFC) was created with the goal to inspire younger generations to care about sustainability and value the environment. Its formation was a natural response of research and trends found by the Green Alliance about members.
