A Slow Market by The Great Love Club

The Great Love Club is hosting a pop-up curated monthly pop-up SLOW market for the most discerning buyer on Saturday, Nov. 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 345 North Coast Highway, Laguna Beach.

SLOW stands for Sustainable, Local, Organic and Whole, and by practicing slow living, we mindfully embody these values into our shopping choices, ensuring we leave with products we love that are long-lasting, of great quality, and will be beneficial to ourselves and the planet.

This market encompasses everything from shopping opportunities, bites to eat, live music, and goodie bags, along with wellness sessions that attendees can drop in to, including cosmetic acupuncture, nutritional response testing, self-healing for stress relief, and a chat about business by The Great Love Club and THE FULLEST.

Vendors have been selected for their effort to maintain the slow value system within their business production and product.

The Great Love Club is a social club on a mission to cultivate a community that values love, slow living, skill-building, and spiritual connection. More information can be found on the Great Love Club Instagram account @thegreatloveclub.
