If you’re trying to support local businesses this year, you don’t have to wait until Small Business Saturday to do so. There are at least four great events this weekend alone. Minneapolis Craft’za at the Grain Belt Brewery Bottling House is always a popular event. Each day will feature around 60 artists working in highly giftable arts. Previous years have included paintings of Prince, cowhide wallets, and adorable hand-knit hats. Other events this weekend include 2010 Artblok Holiday Sale (2010 E. Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis), the 12th Annual Green Gifts Fair at Midtown Global Market (920 E. Lake St., Minneapolis; 612-872-4041), and the Northeast Farmers Market’s Winter Market at Solar Arts by Chowgirls (711 15th Ave. NE, Minneapolis).
