Making The Difference!
Take a look around and you’ll see a wall to wall display of artwork and paintings by local artists (and yes, you can purchase these right off the wall!). Not into art? No biggie!

Unity Market prides itself on their use of local, organic and fair trade products so you’re sure to find something that’s one of a kind! But despite looking cool and having a relaxed vibe, Unity Market is also a major social platform where people can become informed and engage in just about everything from local art and music to social and environmental issues.
