MUUC is a stop along the trolley route, to make your shopping that much easier!

You will see lots of your friends and neighbors here – there are return-shoppers who say that they look look forward to this particular fair every year because it is so different, focused on the things that matter deeply to them: environmental justice, local shopping, small business, and social outreach, among others.
