You’ll learn how to build and maintain a healthy nervous system with the help of herbs and other stress relieving practices, and at the end of class, you’ll use your new found knowledge, along with your own intuition, to create a custom tea or tincture to take home!

This market will also feature the The Intercultural Counseling Connection- a local nonprofit that provides culturally responsive therapeutic services for asylum seekers, asylees, and refugees in the greater Baltimore area. Access to trauma-informed mental health care can help them cope with the effects of pre-migration experiences as well as the challenges of cultural adjustment. Their network of dedicated clinicians includes native speakers of Nepali, Spanish, French, Tigrinya and Farsi. Counseling services provided through the Connection are provided at no cost to clients. 

We began the Greater Goods market in December of 2015. As a small business, we know how helpful markets and pop-ups can be to introduce your wares to the public and engage directly with your customers. We hope to see you there!

Eclipse Day: Space Club Movie Screening

Eclipse Day: Space Club Movie Screening

Happy eclipse day! In honor of this 100 year event, join us for our first Space Club meeting. We will be screening Picture of Light, courtesy of our new neighors, Beyond Video. 

BYOB, we'll provide the popcorn! Movie will start at 8:30 and last until about 10pm.

Picture of Light is a mesmerizing tale about a filmmaker's journey to Canada's arctic in search of one of Earth's greatest natural wonder: the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. While combining glimpses of the characters who live in this remote environment with the film crew's comic and absurd attempts to deal with the extreme cold, the film reveals the paradoxes involved in trying to capture the spectacular light show of the Northern Lights on celluloid.

Exploring the tension between nature and technology and between science and myth, Peter Mettler's documentary reflects on our desire to capture the wonders of the world on camera, revealing how our increasingly connected world threatens to render obsolete our individual and authentic experiences. 

Also, please bring any spare cash to donate to their soon-to-be-open video shop on Howard Street (near Otto bar)!
