The core goals of the Green Gifts Fair Event are:

  1. To expose new and returning visitors to education and hands-on experiences about reducing our personal impact on the environment
  2. Providing education and opportunities for attendees to support and purchase green, locally made and long-lasting gifts while connecting them to local businesses and artists to support year-round
  3. Providing a fun and engaging community event focused on celebrating sustainability, diversity and community building

Please create a profile. If you are a new contact for a returning vendor, please email help@doitgreen.org before registering so we can transfer the existing vendor profile to you. We'll send you a new password to access the vendor profile.

Your GGF Account is your individual access for everything Green Gifts Fair. All Vendors and Volunteers should create their own GGF Account. You will need a valid email address. Use your email address to sign in. You can create one Vendor Profile per GGF Account, and your vendor details will be retained year-to-year.

Green Gifts Fair Vendors

Do It Green! Minnesota uses the following guidelines to define Local Artists vs Green Businesses. Please use your best judgement when choosing a category.

Local Artist:

  • without a storefront
  • mostly sells at art fairs, farmers markets, community events and through their own website and Etsy 
  • does not hire a staff to help with production

Green Business:

  • has a storefront or online store (not Etsy)
  • hires staff

Green Gifts Fair Demos

To keep in alignment with our event goals, we invite new and returning community organizations to educate and promote their work at the Green Gifts Fair based on our event theme and goals for that year with a sliding scale based on supplies and staffing offered and financial availability for each organization.

Please select your primary role in the Green Gifts Fair. Vendors and Demos will have access to Silent Auction options.

You can register and create a Green Gifts Fair profile at your own pace. However, your application will not be considered until the profile is complete and application payment submitted.
