UPDATE: One More Saturday Added! Saturday – March 13th!
On the heels of a successful series of pop up markets in and around Boston in 2020, Black Owned Bos. is excited to announce the first retail pop up of their 2021 season. This “Spread Love” themed retail market will kick off the day before Valentine’s Day and will run for four (4) sequential Saturdays through March 6, 2021 from 12pm to 6pm in South Bay. This indoor rotating collective of local Black owned businesses from throughout the Greater Boston Area, will feature gifts and goods that offer something for everyone while promoting the collective empowerment of Black entrepreneurs. From sweet treats and cards to clothes and accessories, the collective will offer a diverse selection of business categories.
The Spread Love Collective Pop Up will be held on February 13, 2021 (12pm – 6pm), February 20, 2021(12pm – 6pm), February 27, 2021(12pm – 6pm) , and March 6, 2021 (12pm – 6pm) at South Bay, located at 28 District Avenue, Dorchester, MA next to Ulta and Starbucks.
“Black Owned Bos. prides itself on creating safe, inviting, and thoughtfully curated spaces where businesses and customers alike are positioned to have a worthwhile experience. When one door closes, another door opens. The retail market is changing and with many businesses shuttering their doors due to the pandemic, these vacancies present a unique way to leverage the collective strength of our vendor partners to create new opportunities” says Jae’da Turner, Founder and Managing Director of Black Owned Bos.
“Valentine’s Day is a time for special expressions of love and gratitude. Wouldn’t it be nice if we made it a priority to keep that love going throughout the year? The world would surely be a better place with more love. Love for your friends and family. Love for your neighbors. Love for your community and the small locally owned business in it.” adds Jae’da.
In addition to creating a space to spread love to some local Black owned businesses, the Spread Love Collective Pop Up will be raising money to support local mutual aid community fridges that have sprung up around Boston to address food insecurity and other needs.
Spread Love, Not Germs. All local and state guidelines will be observed and enforced. All patrons, staff, and customers will be required to wear a face covering at all times while in the space and capacity will be limited. Early arrival is encouraged.
Parking – Free on-site garage parking is available.
