BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Seaport Common was sporting a village of pop-up tents Saturday as the city's newest neighborhood hosted its second Black-owned Boston market.
25 Black-owned businesses from the city's minority neighborhoods and beyond were showcasing a variety or products and services in the Seaport District Saturday afternoon, from skin care to clothing to candles.
Jada Turner, the founder of Black-owned Boston, said the aim of the weekly market is to bring Black-owned businesses to a new part of the city.
"The seaport is a predominately white area," Turner said. "Even if you're walking by, you don't see many people of color. So the goal is to bring these Black-owned businesses here to connect them with the people that are walking in theses spaces... and to show them these businesses exist."
