Our Vision for New England
Our vision for Common Good Market is to re-connect you to the people who actually make things – beautiful, useful everyday items for the home. Buying locally made products helps build more resilient local economies, leads to improved environmental outcomes, and a better future for our children.
New England has a long and proud history of innovation, artistry, craftsmanship, and a commitment to quality. Unfortunately, the exodus of industry from the region that began over 50 years ago has resulted in an employment base increasingly divided between low wage service jobs and high wage knowledge jobs. This has left us with a many failing Main Streets and the loss of young people from our villages, small towns and cities.
A Renewed Commitment to Community
Common Good Market is committed to promote locally made, environmentally responsible products through our e-commerce site and at regional events. We want to help foster a renewed reliance on locally sourced raw materials, supplies, and labor for new and creative endeavors — the foundation for a revitalized, more sustainable New England.
In the end, our personal choices- how we spend our money, what products we buy, and how we support the efforts of people in our community through those choices – is the only way we can begin to reshape our economy and our future…one local purchase at a time.
