BLACK MARKET STREET USA
A Pop-up Event in Support of Local Black-Owned Businesses
We'll be back soon!
ABOUT BLACK MARKET STREET /
Black Market Street USA is a platform for Alabama-based, Black-owned businesses to showcase their products or services to their neighbors and beyond. Over the next 365 days, the traveling pop-up event will travel to five Alabama cities with the goal of promoting Black-businesses, and amplifying the critical role that Black-owned ventures play in Alabama's economy.
Entrepreneurship is thriving in Alabama! As the nation contemplates its complicated relationship with race, injustice and equality, citizens of all backgrounds and ethnicities are seeking ways to show their support for Black-owned businesses. Enter Black Market Street USA!
By October 1, 2021, the 5-hour pop-up shop will have traveled to Montgomery, Birmingham, Demopolis, Huntsville and Mobile showcasing the promise that exists within Alabama's Black-business community. As long as COVID-19 presents a health risk to Alabama citizens, social distancing and masks will be strictly enforced at each event. There will also be plenty of hand-sanitizer on deck.
Each event will feature food trucks, music, and giveaways! The only thing missing is YOUR COMPANY!
