Around 30 exhibitors were present at St. John's St. Thomas Church today for the first Some Good Market of 2016.
It was a time for entrepreneurs and craftspeople, both young and young at heart, to sell their locally made goods, meet customers, and connect with others in the business.

Several exhibitors shared their advice on how beginners can prepare themselves for trade.
"You have to find something unique, something thats in demand," said Darren Hayward of Newfoundland Seasonings. "Just find something that you enjoy doing and do it."
"I got laid off from my job, and rather than just sit around the house doing nothing, I decided I would start knitting again," said Hilary Simpson of Because I Felt Like It!
"I started a business, and once I found a job, I just kept going at it!" said Simpson.
Admission to the event was free, however donations were accepted for local food banks. Last year the market raised $20,293 for food banks, with a goal of $20,000. This year, the goal is $25,000
