Community Events & Markets


Join us at our outdoor street markets, designed to elevate, engage, and support the community, local artists, and local black-owned businesses. We transform five Blocks along A. Philip Randolph Boulevard from Union Street to Jessie Street into a showcase for start-ups, new brands, and existing businesses seeking a platform to promote and offer their products or services. We also curate live performances and events by local artists of all genres, including music, spoken word, and dance.

Vendor FAQs

Vendor Fees

To secure a vendor space, fees are immediately due after completing an application.


Due to the costs associated with planning and providing entertainment for the market we cannot honor refunds under any circumstance.

Product Requirements

Vendors are required to provide a full description of all items, products, or services offered or promoted during the event.

Space Provided

Vendor spaces will be designated by the event organizers. 


Each non-food vendor is required to have a 10 x 10 canopy tent. 


Businesses that need more space than a 10x10 tent will need to reserve an additional vendor booth space.


Melanin Market does not provide tents, tables, chairs, lighting, or sound equipment. 

Food Trucks and Carts

 All food trucks and carts are required to contact the Melanin Organizers regarding space requirements. 


We are always looking for volunteers to help with event set-up and operations. Learn more here.
