First, to make BIPOC vendors MONEY and gain new customers – being a small business owner, I know how hard this is, and we hope this helps!
Second, is to allow new customers who are NOT a part of the BIPOC community to experience AWESOME BIPOC businesses and people. We want all vendors and visitors to feel welcome, safe, and loved. We want people to have an AWESOME experience, and then go home to tell their friends about the AWESOME people they met and engaged with. We know that this will not end racism or wealth inequalities – but doing something is better than doing nothing.

After the murder of George Floyd, the team at BevSource and The Lab took the immediate approach to look inward and focus on our faults and learn to be better people. After weeks of discussions, we challenged ourselves to think about "what can WE do as a small business to help empower black people?" We started with the www.blackisbeautiful.beer movement and donating our proceeds to www.meda.net. But we knew we could do MORE. With our passion for entrepreneurship and the 16,000sf covered shed in our parking lot, we connected with local organizations & leaders to host our first event on Sept 12, 2020. We hosted an outdoor market where people from ALL walks of life could come purchase goods and services from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) Businesses in a SAFE and INCLUSIVE place - at a location that is right in the middle of the Twin Cities! And with the support of our BIPOC vendors, we are hosting a Local Market EVERY SECOND SATURDAY in 2021!
With Love From,
